Embassy Spokesperson's letter to the Financial Times on the latter's unjustified comments on China's policy towards Cambodia
2017/09/18

Ms. Zeng Rong, Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, recently wrote a letter to the Financial Times on the latter’s unjustified comments on China’s policy towards Cambodia. The Financial Times published part of the letter on 18 September 2017. The following is the full text of the Spokesperson’s letter:

Sir,

FT view “Hun Sen’s Cambodia slides into despotism” (7th of Sept) constituted an interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign country on the one hand, and on the other, made unjust accusation against China’s policy with regard to neighboring countries.

Chinese diplomacy is centered on building a community of shared destiny. In plain words, it is an interdependent world, and all is well when everyone is well. This concept is reflected fully in China’s policy towards neighbouring countries.

China values its many neighbours and regards good neighbours as priceless treasure. Building good relationship with neighbouring countries is therefore a matter of course. To this end, China has adopted and adhered to the principle of amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness, and has worked persistently to forge friendship and partnership with neighboring countries.

For many years, China’s fast growth has brought solid and tangible benefits to the countries around it. China has become the biggest trading partner, exporting market and source of investment of most neighboring countries.

“The Belt and Road Initiative” offers new prospects for the cooperation between China and its neighbours. By now, there are 356 international cargo transportation lines connecting China and its neighbours via 73 land and water ports. In 2016 the total trade along the “Belt and Road” amounts to 950 billion US dollars, which accounted for 26% of China’s trade with the world.

Equality and mutual respect are the essence of harmonious state-to-state relationship. Countries that share the same ideal and follow the same path can be partners. Countries that seek common ground while shelving differences can also be partners. The key lies in the principles of the UN Charter, i.e. sovereign equality, non-interference in the domestic affairs of other countries, peaceful solution of international disputes, equality of all countries big or small, and fairness and justice for all. No one should boss others around because of its wealth, or interfere in the internal affairs of other countries because of its strength. Such hegemonic practice had incurred war and colonialism in the past, and past lessons must be learnt.

“The sea is vast because it admits hundreds of rivers.” By pursuing peaceful development and sticking to the principle of dialogue rather than confrontation, partnership rather than alignment, China is ready to make friends and achieve win-win with all the countries of the world.

ZENG Rong

Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom
