Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng: Forming an anti-China Bloc Is to Divide the Global Village and to Turn Back the Wheel of History

2020/07/08

On July 8, 2020, at the Video Dialogue on Sino-US Relations co-hosted by the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs and the Asia Society, Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said, we live in a globalized world, which calls for multilateralism and global cooperation. In a world where national interests are interconnected, any attempt to exclude China, create "parallel systems", or break the world into two markets and industrial chains is to turn back the wheel of history. To build a bloc against China and force other countries to take sides will not win hearts and minds. Many countries resent being put in such a position. China pursues friendship with all countries around the world. We hope to boost connectivity through the Belt and Road Initiative. We put ourselves on an equal footing with all countries, and we are committed to developing friendship and cooperation. China will not be isolated. It is impossible to exclude a market of 1.4 billion people. The attempt to form blocs and split the world in this increasingly networked and digital age is just preposterous. It is doomed to fail.
