Original title: Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying made clear his position on the US leader's unprovoked accusation against China.
Q: Vice President Burns made a speech at the think tank on the evening of October 4, claiming that China interfered in the internal affairs and elections of the United States and made unreasonable accusations against China's domestic and foreign policies. How do you comment on this?
A: Relevant speeches have made various unwarranted accusations of China's domestic and foreign policies and slandered China's interference in the internal affairs and elections of the United States. They are purely a matter of capturing the wind, confusing right and wrong, and making nothing out of nothing. China firmly opposes this.
The Chinese people have high confidence in socialism with Chinese characteristics. History and reality have proved that this is a successful way to conform to China's national conditions, to achieve national prosperity and people's happiness. The Chinese people have the most say in this regard. China is firmly committed to deepening the reform in an all-round way and opening wider to the outside world. China's development relies mainly on the hard work of all the Chinese people themselves, and at the same time benefits from our mutually beneficial cooperation with other countries, but it does not come from the alms and gifts of others. No one can stop the Chinese people from steadfastly following the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics and making greater achievements. Anyone who wants to distort the facts is in vain.
China has consistently taken the road of peaceful development and is committed to developing friendly cooperative relations with other countries on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence and promoting the construction of a community of human destiny. China has always been a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development and a defender of international order. China's economic and diplomatic activities around the world are universally welcomed by all countries, and our friends all over the world. China will never develop itself at the expense of the interests of other countries, while firmly defending its sovereignty, security and development interests. It is absurd for the United States to describe normal exchanges and cooperation between China and the United States as China's interference in the internal affairs and elections of the United States. China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference in internal affairs, and we have no interest in interfering in the internal affairs and elections of the United States. It has long been clear to the international community who frequently infringes upon the sovereignty of other countries, interferes in their internal affairs and harms their interests. Any malicious maltreatment of China is futile.
China's policy toward the United States is consistent and clear. We are committed to working together with the United States to achieve no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation. We urge the United States to correct its mistakes, stop accusing and slandering China for no reason, stop damaging China's interests and Sino-US relations, and take practical actions to safeguard the healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations.
