2019/01/29

Q: In his speech at a forum in Singapore organized by the British International Institute for Strategic Studies, Australian Defense Minister Christopher Pyne said that there is no gain in stifling China's growth and prosperity and Australia is not interested in containing China. What is your comment?

A: We have noted relevant reports. It serves the common interests of the two countries and two peoples to ensure the sound and steady development of China-Australia relations. We hope that Australia and China could work together to move forward the China-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership based on mutual respect and equality.
