Venezuela issues

Independence and sovereignty of every country should be respected and China supports Venezuela in peacefully resolving the crisis, Wang said, adding that Latin American countries' right to develop relations with China should be respected.

Belt and Road Initiative

The second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) will be held this year in Beijing and will expect more global leaders and events with delegations from over 100 countries, Wang said, stressing that China will keep an open, transparent and sustainable approach to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) cooperation.

A total of 123 countries and 29 international organizations have signed Belt and Road agreements with China.

Many facts prove that the BRI benefits local people, contrary to "debt trap" allegations, Wang added.

On multilateralism

Though it faces the headwinds of protectionism and unilateralism, China remains a staunch supporter of globalization, multilateralism and the free trade system under UN charter and international law, Wang said.

China-Russia relations

Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend this year's BRF. Chinese President Xi Jinping will also pay a state visit to Russia.

Both China and Russia plan to expand cooperation in science, agriculture, e-commerce and financial services, Wang said.

China-U.S. relations

Competition between China and the U.S. is normal; however, the key is to put things into a larger perspective, Wang said.

China and the U.S. should not, and will not, go into confrontation since the interests of the two countries are already inseparable, Wang added.

China-Europe relations

Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit Europe later in March which will also be his first diplomatic tour in 2019, Wang said.
