（From Chinese Embassy in Israel）
On September 14th, Mr. Miao Deyu, Counselor and Spokesman of the Embassy of People's Republic of China in the State of Israel holds a briefing about the white paper on "China's Peaceful Development" in the Embassy. Israeli and Chinese media representatives from Israeli newspaper "Yedioth Ahronoth", Xinhua News Agency, China Central Television, China Radio International, "Guangming Daily", "Science and Technology Daily", etc. attended the briefing.
Counselor Miao Deyu introduced the main content of the White Paper and emphasized that it is of great significance that China explains to the world once again through the White Paper the path of peaceful development at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century and on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Peaceful development is a strategic choice made by China to realize modernization, make itself strong and prosperous, and make more contribution to the progress of human civilization. China's overall goal of pursuing peaceful development is to promote development and harmony domestically and pursue cooperation and peace internationally. As a member of the international community, China has great hope for the future world. China pursues an independent foreign policy of peace, promotes new thinking on security featuring mutual trust, mutual benefit, equality and coordination, actively lives up to international responsibility, promotes regional cooperation and good-neighborly relations. China's path of peaceful development is a choice necessitated by history and has broken away from the traditional pattern where a rising power was bound to seek hegemony. China will unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development.
Counselor Miao Deyu said that since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Israel, pragmatic cooperation in the political, economic, scientific, educational, cultural and other fields has scored remarkable achievements. This was not only a result of the joint efforts of the two governments and peoples, but also a vivid example of China's friendly and mutually beneficial cooperation with other countries along the path of peaceful development. China's adherence to peaceful development provides a good opportunity to further strengthen mutual cooperation and friendship. The future of the relations between the two countries will be ever better.
Counselor Miao Deyu also responded to questions raised by reporters.
