中英对照:2023年5月8日外交部发言人汪文斌主持例行记者会 [2]

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin’s Regular Press Conference on May 8, 2023 [2]

Wang Wenbin China deplores and firmly opposes the wrongful words and actions of Switzerland.
The Taiwan question is the core of China’s core interests. There is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory. The government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is the sole legal government representing the whole of China. The one-China principle is a prevailing consensus of the international community and a universally recognized norm governing international relations. It is a component of the post-war international order and shall not be distorted or misrepresented. Switzerland was one of the first countries to recognize and establish diplomatic ties with the PRC. The one-China principle is the most important political cornerstone for the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Switzerland and what has underpinned the smooth exchange and cooperation between the two countries over the past 70-plus years. 
We urge the Swiss side to uphold its political commitment to the one-China policy, stop sending wrong signals to “Taiwan independence” separatist forces, stop conniving at or supporting any “Taiwan independence” activities and work with China to maintain the sound momentum of growth of bilateral relations.
CNR German Foreign Minister Baerbock just visited China last month and State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang will make a return visit within one month. Any consideration for that arrangement? How does China view its current relations with Germany?
Wang Wenbin China and Germany are both major countries with international influence. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties more than 50 years ago, China and Germany have treated each other with equality and respect, sought common ground while shelving differences, and pursued win-win results, which has not only elevated bilateral cooperation, but also set the pace for the growth of China-Europe relations. During this visit, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang will have further dialogue and communication with the German side to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation and make joint efforts for the sound and steady growth of the China-Germany all-round strategic partnership.
CRI Following up on State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang’s visit to Norway, how do you see China’s relations with Norway at the moment? What does China hope to achieve through this visit?
Wang Wenbin In recent years, the growth of China-Norway relations has sustained sound momentum. Guided by the important common understandings between leaders of the two countries, China and Norway have made impressive progress in trade, marine, green and winter sports cooperation and coordinated closely on climate change, biodiversity and multilateral affairs at the UN. All this speaks to the strong dynamism and potential of our relations.
Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Norway. We hope State Councilor Qin’s visit will be an opportunity for closer exchange, stronger mutual trust, more cooperation, and joint efforts to steadily advance bilateral relations and bring them to a new height in the new era.
AFP State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang said in a meeting with US Ambassador Nicholas Burns this morning that a series of erroneous words and actions by the US side have undercut the hard-won positive momentum in bilateral relations. Could you elaborate on what specific words and actions he was referring to?
Wang Wenbin We have released a readout on State Councilor Qin Gang’s meeting with Ambassador Burns. You can find answers to your question in that readout. Let me go over that part for you.
