China Global Television Network: In 2018, for the very first time in 12 years, the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation will once again be hosted by China right here in Beijing. What outcome do you expect from that summit? The world is evolving, so is China. But one thing that seems to remain unchanged for China at least is the importance it attached to Africa’s concerns and interest. I am also wondering how China stays true to its policy on honesty and amicability towards Africa in the new era?





Wang Yi: Congratulations to CGTN on your success. General Secretary Xi Jinping once made a powerful statement: “China and Africa are friends tested by adversity. Such friends must never be forgotten.” So be assured: no matter how the world may change or what others may say, the profound friendship between China and Africa will remain unbreakable, and China’s promise of sincerity, real results, friendship and good faith will remain true.


As Africa’s brother and partner, China will always attach particular importance to the needs and interests of African countries. Africa’s concerns are China’s concerns, and its priorities are China’s priorities. Africa faces the twin challenges of maintaining peace and security and of promoting development and revitalization. In response to its needs, China will step up mediation in regional flashpoints. China will also enhance cooperation with African countries on unconventional security threats such as terrorism, piracy, and natural disaster, and help them build capacity for ensuring their own peace and security.


Africa is an indispensable partner, in our new endeavor to build a global community with a shared future. China welcomes our African brothers and sisters to get on board the fast train of China ’s development. The FOCAC summit scheduled for September will bring together Chinese and African leaders again, 12 years after their last gathering in Beijing. They will discuss China-Africa cooperation in the new era and focus on jointly advancing the Belt and Road Initiative and turning China and Africa into a community with a shared future. By aligning the Belt and Road Initiative with the UN’s 2030 Agenda, the AU’s Agenda 2063 and the development strategies of individual African countries, we will give wings to China-Africa cooperation to help it soar to greater heights.



Kyodo News: In this 40th anniversary year of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship, both countries have been making active efforts to improve relations. Will we see an exchange of visits between Chinese and Japanese leaders? How does China see the relationship and its future?



Wang Yi: I’m sure you will keep working on your Chinese.  In the recent period, Japan has adopted a clearer and more positive policy towards China, resulting in a precious improvement of relations. China welcomes this. If Japan does not prevaricate, flip-flop or backpedal, and instead comes to terms with China’s development and welcomes it, China will be willing to act in the same spirit and work with Japan to put our relationship back on the track of healthy and steady growth.


Forty years ago, China and Japan signed the Treaty of Peace and Friendship. It codified the political principles agreed in negotiating the normalization of Sino-Japanese relations, including handling history correctly and following the one-China policy. The treaty also enshrined our joint desire to live in peace and friendship forever. As a saying goes, never forget why you started, and you can accomplish your mission. Forty years on, at another crucial juncture of history, we hope Japan will have political credibility and act accordingly to cement the political foundation of our relations and give effect to the political understanding that “China and Japan see each other as partners, not threats”. I am hopeful that with the steady improvement of our relations, high-level visits will naturally come about, and peace and friendship will again be the dominant theme of China-Japan relations.



Phoenix TV: What is China’s view of the “Indo-Pacific strategy” pursued by the US, Japan, India, and Australia? Do you see it as an attempt to “contain” China or offset China’s Belt and Road Initiative? How will China respond to it?



Wang Yi: It seems there is never a shortage of headline-grabbing ideas. They are like the seafoam in the Pacific or the Indian Ocean: they may get some attention, but soon will dissipate. Contrary to the claim made by some academics and media outlets that the “Indo-Pacific strategy” aims to contain China, the four countries’ official position is that it targets no one. I hope they mean what they say and their action will match their rhetoric. As to the relationship between the Indo-Pacific strategy and the Belt and Road Initiative, let us not forget that the BRI has received the support of over 100 countries. Nowadays, stoking a new Cold War is out of sync with the times and inciting block confrontation will find no market.

Press Trust of India: 2017 has been a very difficult year in India-China relations. The relations were affected by a host of issues, including stand-off at Donglang. You and State Councilor Yang Jiechi visited Delhi and followed by the recent visit by Indian Foreign Secretary to here for talks with you and other officials. How do you see India-China relations shaping up this year?





Wang Yi: Despite some tests and difficulties, the China-India relationship continues to grow. In the process, China has both upheld its legitimate rights and interests and taken care to preserve the relationship. Chinese and Indian leaders have developed a strategic vision for the future of our relations: the Chinese “dragon” and the Indian “elephant” must not fight each other, but dance with each other. If China and India are united, one plus one will equal not only two but also eleven.


The international situation is experiencing its biggest change in a century. More and more far-sighted people have come to realize that as the largest two developing countries become modernized – each with a population of more than one billion – China and India must do everything to empathize with and support each other and to avoid mutual suspicion and attrition. In this sense, mutual trust is the most precious commodity in China-India relations. With political trust, not even the Himalayas can stop us from strengthening friendly exchanges; without it, not even level land can bring us together. Let me put this to our Indian friends: our shared understandings far outstrip our differences and our common interests far outweigh our frictions. China is willing and ready to inherit and take forward our traditional friendship and be a friend and partner of the Indian people. I hope the two sides will be free from mental inhibitions and meet each other halfway. Let us replace suspicion with trust, manage differences through dialogue, and build a future through cooperation.
