Xi Jinping meets with German Chancellor Scholz

Xi Jinping meets with German Chancellor Scholz

On the morning of April 16, President Xi Jinping met with German Chancellor Scholz at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.

Xi Jinping pointed out that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of an all-round strategic partnership between China and Germany. Over the past 10 years, despite the great changes in the international situation, China-Germany relations have always developed steadily, and cooperation in various fields has been continuously consolidated and deepened, providing impetus for the development of both countries. At present, the world’s changes that have occurred over the past century are accelerating and human society is facing increasing risks and challenges. To solve these problems, cooperation between major countries is indispensable. China and Germany are the second and third largest economies in the world. The significance of consolidating and developing Sino-German relations transcends the scope of bilateral relations and has an important impact on the Eurasian continent and even the entire world. The two countries should view and develop bilateral relations from a long-term and strategic perspective and work together to inject more stability and certainty into the world.

Xi Jinping emphasized that both China and Germany have made significant contributions to the progress of human civilization. There is no fundamental conflict of interest between China and Germany and they do not pose a security threat to each other. Sino-German cooperation is beneficial to both sides and beneficial to the world. The more turbulent the world becomes, the more important it is for both sides to enhance the resilience and vitality of their relations, adhere to the main tone of cooperation and the general direction of development of China-Germany relations, and firmly grasp the positioning of China and Germany as all-round strategic partners. China’s policy toward Germany maintains a high degree of stability and consistency. Both sides should continue to have close exchanges with an open mind and enhance strategic mutual trust. As long as both sides adhere to mutual respect, seeking common ground while reserving differences, exchanges and mutual learning, and win-win cooperation, the relations between the two countries will continue to be stable and long-term.

Xi Jinping pointed out that the industrial and supply chains of China and Germany are deeply embedded in each other, and the markets of the two countries are highly interdependent. Mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Germany is not a “risk”, but a guarantee for the stability of bilateral relations and an opportunity to create a future. Whether it is traditional fields such as machinery manufacturing and automobiles, or emerging fields such as green transformation, digitalization, and artificial intelligence, the two countries have huge potential for win-win cooperation that needs to be tapped. Both sides should carry forward the distinctive characteristics of mutual benefit and win-win results and achieve mutual success. China’s exports of electric vehicles, lithium batteries, photovoltaic products, etc. have not only enriched global supply and alleviated global inflation pressure, but also made great contributions to the global response to climate change and green and low-carbon transformation. Both China and Germany are based on industry and support free trade and economic globalization. Both sides should be wary of the rise of protectionism, insist on looking at production capacity issues objectively and dialectically from a market perspective and a global perspective, and proceeding from economic laws, and explore more cooperation. China adheres to the basic national policy of opening up and hopes that Germany will provide a fair, transparent, open and non-discriminatory business environment for Chinese enterprises to develop in Germany. China and Germany have a lot in common on the issue of world multipolarity. Multipolarity should essentially mean mutual respect and peaceful coexistence between countries with different civilizations, systems and paths. China and Germany should independently carry out multilateral cooperation, promote the international community to use practical actions to better respond to global challenges such as climate change, uneven development, and regional conflicts, and make more contributions to the balance and stability of the world.

Scholz said that currently, Germany-China relations are developing well, and the two sides have close exchanges at all levels and in all fields. The two sides successfully held government consultations and high-level dialogues in strategic, financial and other fields, and will also hold dialogues on climate change and green transformation. In the past two days, representatives of the German business community and I visited Chongqing, Shanghai and other places. We personally experienced the great achievements China’s economic development has made in recent years and were deeply impressed by the close and good cooperation between the business communities of Germany and China. Germany is willing to work with China to continue to strengthen bilateral relations, deepen bilateral dialogue and cooperation in various fields, and promote people-to-people and cultural exchanges in education, culture and other fields, which are of vital importance to both Germany and China and the world. Germany is willing to strengthen communication and coordination with China to jointly respond to global challenges such as climate change, is committed to safeguarding the multilateral international order, promotes world peace and development, and does not endorse confrontation and confrontation. Germany opposes protectionism and supports free trade. As an important member of the EU, Germany is willing to play an active role in promoting the sound development of relations between the EU and China.

The leaders of the two countries also had an in-depth exchange of views on the Ukraine crisis, saying that China and Germany are committed to abide by the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter, oppose the use of nuclear weapons or attacks on peaceful nuclear facilities, properly resolve international food security issues, and abide by international humanitarian law.

Xi Jinping emphasized that under the current situation, in order to prevent the conflict from spiraling or even spiraling out of control, all parties should work together to restore peace as soon as possible. To this end, we should adhere to the following principles: First, we must focus on the overall situation of peace and stability, and do not seek selfish interests. Second, we need to cool down the situation and not add fuel to the fire. Third, we must accumulate conditions for the restoration of peace and avoid further intensifying conflicts. Fourth, we must reduce the negative impact on the world economy and do not undermine the stability of global industrial and supply chains. China is not a party or participant in the Ukraine crisis, but it has been promoting peace talks in its own way. China encourages and supports all efforts that are conducive to the peaceful resolution of the crisis, and supports the timely convening of an international peace conference recognized by Russia and Ukraine, with equal participation by all parties, and fair discussion of all peace options. China is willing to maintain cooperation with all relevant parties, including Germany, in this regard. Communicate closely.

The two sides also exchanged views on international and regional issues of common interest such as the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Both sides believe that UN Security Council Resolution 2728 should be implemented to prevent the situation from escalating and further deteriorating the situation, ensure barrier-free and sustainable humanitarian access to the Gaza Strip, and support the early negotiation of the Palestinian issue on the basis of the “two-state solution”. Resolve, calling on influential countries to play a constructive role in maintaining regional peace and stability and promoting an early comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the Palestinian issue.

After the meeting, Xi Jinping and Scholz took a walk and had lunch together to further in-depth exchanges on a wide range of issues.

Wang Yi attended the meeting.
