We’ve pressed the “acceleration button”, and sounded the clarion call for our diplomacy.
Chinese modernization offers solutions to many challenges facing human development. It busts the myth that “Modernization=Westernization”; it creates a new form of human advancement; and it provides an important source of inspiration for the world, especially developing countries. Chinese modernization has at least five features: independence, putting people first, peaceful development, openness and inclusiveness, and working hard in unity.
The so-called “establishing guardrails” and “not seeking conflict” simply means that China should not respond in words or action when slandered or attacked. That is just impossible!
Mishandling of the Taiwan question will shake the very foundation of China-U.S. relations.
China always adheres to the merits of the issue and makes its own judgement and decides its stance independently. Between peace and war, we choose peace. Between dialogue and sanctions, we choose dialogue. Between cooling down the situation and fueling the flames, we choose the former.
The new journey of China’s diplomacy will be an expedition with glories and dreams, and it will also be a long voyage through stormy seas. The harder the mission, the more glorious its accomplishment.
Humanity’s modernization should not be a one-flower show but a hundred flowers in bloom. It is important to respect
the right of every country to pursue a modernization path tailored to its national reality, and encourage exchange and mutual learning, so that all will flourish and prosper together.
If the U.S. has the ambition to make itself great again, it should also have a broad mind for other countries to develop.
In China’s diplomacy, there is no shortage
of goodwill and kindness. But if faced with the attacks from jackals
or wolves, Chinese diplomats would have no choice but to confront head-on to defend their motherland.
