Wang Yi: China, Indonesia can drive modernization in developing nations


 , Updated 15:20, 18-Apr-2024

China and Indonesia can be engines of modernization for developing countries, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in Jakarta, Indonesia on Thursday.

China and Indonesia can serve as a model of mutual trust and assistance between a major country and a neighboring country, and should remain open and inclusive in their win-win cooperation, Wang added.

Wang, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks at a joint press conference with Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi.  

Wang said the aim of his visit to Indonesia is to implement the important consensus reached by the two heads of state, demonstrate China's firm support for Indonesia, and promote the greater development of bilateral relations.

Noting that next year will be the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Indonesia, Wang said China is willing to working with Indonesia to promote the building of a China-Indonesia community with a shared future with regional and global influence on the basis of the consensus reached by the two heads of state.

Applauding fruitful exchanges with his counterpart Retno, Wang said that both sides had reviewed the historic development of bilateral relations over the past 10 years and concluded that the key to the valuable achievements in China-Indonesia relations lies in the adherence to the leadership of the heads of state, strategic independence, mutual trust and assistance, win-win cooperation, and fairness and justice.

Advocating an open, inclusive and win-win partnership, Wang said that the two sides should oppose unilateralism and protectionism, "decoupling" and "small yard, high fence," so as to jointly maintain the stability of the industrial and supply chain.

Calling for the hard-won peace and stability in the region to be cherished and safeguarded, Wang said that it is necessary to be vigilant against engaging in camp confrontations in the region and cobbling together various "small circles" to undermine regional peace and stability.

China stands ready to continue to work with countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to fully and effectively implement the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, and accelerate the negotiation of the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea to build the South China Sea into a sea of peace and cooperation, Wang reiterated.

On the humanitarian crisis resulting from the Israel-Palestine conflict, Wang said that the two sides had agreed that Security Council resolution 2728 should be fully implemented, an immediate, unconditional and durable ceasefire should be realized, and civilians should be effectively protected, adding that "a humanitarian relief mechanism should be established as soon as possible to ensure the rapid, safe, unimpeded and sustainable entry of humanitarian supplies into Gaza, and the parties concerned should be called upon to exercise calm and restraint, avoid escalation of the situation and prevent spillover of the conflict."

China supports the UN Security Council in discussing and accepting the application by the Palestinian Authority to become a full UN member as soon as possible, and advocates the convening of a larger, more authoritative and more effective international peace conference in order to form a timetable and roadmap for the implementation of the two-state solution, he said.
