Q: A group of UK lawmakers issued a report that they found "alarming evidence" on Chinese influences on the campuses of UK universities. I was wondering if the foreign ministry could share its response?

A: We noted the media reports. China doesn't interfere in other countries' internal affairs. We develop friendly and cooperative relations with other countries based on mutual respect, non-interference and other principles.

Exchange of students has always been an important part of cooperation between China and the UK, which has contributed to communication and mutual understanding between our peoples. We hope the relevant side can view things objectively and do more to enhance China-UK relations and people-to-people exchange instead of making fictitious remarks and sowing discord.

Q: The Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council signed the Riyadh Agreement on November 5 in the Saudi capital. The two sides reached consensus on forming a new government and integrating armed forces. I wonder if you have any comment?

A: China firmly supports efforts to uphold Yemen's sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity. We welcome the signing of the Riyadh Agreement between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council. We also appreciate the positive role played by Saudi Arabia and other parties. We hope relevant parties will bear in mind the interests of Yemen and its people, accelerate the political settlement process and restore peace, stability and normal order as early as possible.
