Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks

Beijing Daily: Australian Prime Minister said at the 2020 Aspen Security Forum on August 5 that building an Indo-Pacific alliance with like-minded nations will be a "critical priority" for his government. Australia welcomes a rising China and hopes it will play a role in regional and global stability. He added there is no reason for them to restrict TikTok at this point. Do you have any response?

Wang Wenbin: We noted relevant remarks. I want to point out that China is committed to the path of peaceful development and will never seek hegemony or engage in confrontation. China always believes that peace, cooperation, development and win-win results are the irresistible trend of the times and the common aspiration of people worldwide. Any strategy for regional cooperation should conform to the general trend and meet people’s desire. Otherwise, it will not be supported by regional countries. We note that the Australian side said it welcomes China's development and hope it will translate its words into concrete actions and do more things that are in line with the spirit of China-Australia comprehensive strategic partnership and conducive to regional peace and stability.
