Brussels, November 27 On the 26th, a spokesman for the Chinese Mission to the European Union answered reporters’ questions on the report on the impact of the European Parliament on the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the EU’s foreign policy, emphasizing that the false content of the report ignored the Chinese people’s anti-epidemic efforts and China-EU anti-epidemic cooperation, distorted. Qu China’s development intention and deny China’s legitimate right to safeguard its sovereignty and security, and China expresses its firm opposition.
A reporter asked that on the 25th, the European Parliament released the Report on the Impact of the COVID-19 Epidemic on the EU’s Foreign Policy, criticizing the Chinese government’s early response to the COVID-19 epidemic, saying that China used the epidemic to expand its own influence, and calling on the European Union to re-examine Europe-China relations. How does China comment on this?
A spokesman for the Chinese Mission to the European Union said that since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, China has reported the epidemic for the first time, quickly took strict measures to prevent and control the epidemic, and rushed to the international community, including the European Union and its member states, and comprehensively promoted the resumption of work and production, making important contributions to the global fight against the epidemic and European economic recovery.
The spokesman stressed that China’s development is to live a better life for 1.4 billion people, which is a legitimate and reasonable appeal, which cannot be distorted or stopped. China has no intention to influence who, interfere with and change who. There is no so-called geopolitical or even expansion intention. It hopes that the EU will earnestly respect China’s core interests and major concerns and abide by the basic norms of international law and international relations such as non-interference in internal affairs.
The spokesman said that the global epidemic is still going on. China and the EU should establish and adhere to a correct understanding of each other and cooperate sincerely. If they do not put down the old thinking mode and ideology, it is like “fighting fire with pay”, which ultimately harms China-EU relations and the interests of the people of both sides. China calls for more inclusiveness and cooperation in the European Parliament. Less suspicion and accusations to defeat the real opponent of the virus as soon as possible through international cooperation.
