Spokesperson on China's relationship with G-8

2000-11-15 14:15
Q: Recently, Japan and some other G-8 members have expressed their intention to invite China to attend the G-8 Summit as an observer or even to join the group. What is China's position on this question?


A: G-7 was a body set up by major developed nations to coordinate economic policies among themselves. Russia later on took part in some of its activities, hence the name of G-8. China has made clear on many occasions that it has no intention to attend the G-8 summits and other related activities. The position and viewpoints of China on Asia-Pacific affairs and other major international issues are well known. Meanwhile, China wants to emphasize that the important role of the United Nations and the UN Security Council in international affairs is irreplaceable, as is the consensus of the entire international community.
