Original title: Hua Chunying responded to the US's launching of a trade war: unilateralism and multilateralism, protectionism and free trade, power and rule.
"The office of the Ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson" (xws4_fmprc) news: it was reported that in July 10th, the US Trade Representative Office announced a list of 10% tariffs on additional US $200 billion US products. At the regular press conference of the Ministry of foreign affairs in July 11th, a reporter asked about the comments made by the Chinese side.
Hua Chunying: this morning, a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce has made a statement on this issue, which shows China's solemn stand. I want to emphasize once again that American behavior is a typical trade bullying. China will make the necessary counter measures and resolutely safeguard its legitimate legitimate rights and interests. This is a battle between unilateralism and multilateralism, protectionism and free trade, power and rule. China will work together with the international community on the correct side of history and jointly safeguard the multilateral trading system and rules.
Another reporter asked: we note that the United States launched a trade war has caused concern among the international community. Lagarde, President of the International Monetary Fund, pointed out that the United States needs to bear the consequences of "tariff damage" to the world trade system. Azevedo, director general of the world trade organization, warned that the global trading system is beginning to waver. Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve, believes that the duties imposed by the United States are actually paid by American nationals. Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, pointed out that the United States will become the biggest loser in a comprehensive trade war. How do you comment on this?
Hua Chunying: in today's era, the economies of different countries are integrated into the global industrial chain and value chain in different degrees. It is the right choice to establish the party. If we stick to the obsolete thinking of "zero and game" and provoking the trade war willfully, it will not only hurt the interests of both parties, but also hurt the interests of all sides in the global industrial chain, and there will be no winners. 40% of China's exports of goods and 2/3 of its exports of high-tech products are realized by foreign-funded enterprises in China. As a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce said, the United States is firing on the world and firing on itself. The statements of the many international economic authorities that you have just mentioned have also fully demonstrated that the loss of rational behavior by the United States is very dangerous, harmful and unpopular.
I want to emphasize once again that this is a battle between unilateralism and multilateralism, protectionism and free trade, power and rule. The international community should make joint efforts to resolutely resist unilateralism, oppose protectionism and safeguard the multilateral trading system and free trade rules. This is the responsibility and responsibility that a responsible country should have.
