State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that his visit to Fiji is a great success and the 2nd China-Pacific Island Countries Foreign Ministers’ Meeting is timely and helpful in building new consensus to take the bilateral relations to a new height.

 

Wang Yi stressed that China is not a new comer for the Pacific Islands region and has established diplomatic relations with PICs nearly 50 years ago.

The principle of our cooperation is mutual respect and the goal is common development.

His visit to Fiji and other PICs is a mission of peace, friendship and cooperation.

 

Chinese Ambassador Qian Bo said, during the 2nd China-PICs Foreign Ministers Meeting, Wang Yi and his counterparts from the PICs had in-depth discussions on how to  deepen cooperation in a cordial atmosphere.

They reached new consensus on future cooperation and agreed to carry out further discussions for more consensus.

As a trustworthy friend of PICs, China sticks to equality among all countries regardless of their size, never imposes its own will on others.

 

The 2nd China-PICs Foreign Ministers Meeting focused on areas of cooperation between the two sides.

We feel surprised that there are some unfounded comments on the proposed documents.

In fact, not every meeting will necessarily produce outcome documents.

 

Important documents often take time to discuss, and may not be finalized in one meeting.

The more consultation we have, the better result we get.

In order to facilitate future discussions, China will soon release its position paper to introduce the vision and plan for future cooperation with
PICs.
