Chinese, Papua New Guinea FMs discuss economic cooperation, environmental concerns
China says it plans to build a storage pool for relief materials with some Pacific Island nations to better equip them for health emergencies and natural disasters. This was one of the things discussed between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his counterpart from Papua New Guinea Soroi Eoe. Both sides held talks in the southwestern Chinese city of Guiyang on Thursday. Wang said both countries have the potential in cooperation in fields such as energy, transportation and trade. He also refuted criticism that China is posing a threat to Pacific Island countries.
