Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister, Wang Yi said that the country would not seek hegemony anywhere.
The Councilor disclosed this on Friday while talking about the misunderstanding of the United States towards China.
Wang said in his words, the United States is yet to find the right way to deal with China with its new administration.
According to Wang, proposals have been made on how to view China-U.S. relations from a strategic perspective during a video conference with the U.S. think tank Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
“We think that the right approach to deal with China-U.S. relations should be strengthening communication, deepening cooperation, narrowing differences and avoiding confrontations.
“If confrontations are at the front, then both are going to suffer from loss,” he said.
Wang noted that China adheres to the policy of peaceful development and will never seek hegemony because lessons from its historical experience have said that if a country turns to hegemony, it is doomed to fail.
Wang who said “China-U.S. relations are entering a new crossroad,” added that China hopes that the United States would view China’s development objectively and rationally, and explore with China a new path of peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation, respect and accommodate the path and system that China has independently chosen.
Speaking on interference in domestic affairs, the Chinese foreign minister also reiterated China’s positions on Taiwan, Xinjiang and Hong Kong, asking the U.S. not to interfere in its internal affairs. He said that the U.S. can’t expect China to cooperate on issues that have nothing to do with U.S.
Urging the United States to strictly abide by the one-China principle and honor its commitments under the three China-U.S. Joint Communiques, he warned that playing the “Taiwan card” is “playing with fire.”
