Wang Yi quotes

Apr 17 2017 - China

As long as it is a talk, China is willing to support it: either it is formal or informal, one-track or dual-track, bilateral, trilateral or quadrilateral. We are also willing to stay open-minded and accept the good advice from others.feedback

Apr 15 2017

There has been heightened tension between the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. This precarious situation deserves our attention and concern.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - South China Sea

If someone is still trying to make waves [in the South China Sea], they will have no support and will meet opposition from all parties. We definitely will not allow this stable situation, which has been hard to come by, to be damaged or interfered with.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - South Korea

China's suggestion is, as a first step, for North Korea to suspend nuclear and missile activities, and for the U.S. and South Korea to also suspend large-scale military drills. Holding nuclear weapons won't bring security, using military force won't be a way out. There remains a chance of resuming talks, there is still hope for peace.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - South Korea

The question is: Are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision? Our priority now is to flash the red light and apply the brakes on both trains. This suspension-for-suspension can help us break out of the security dilemma and bring the parties back to the negotiating table. We urge some forces in South Korea not to keep insisting on taking this path, otherwise the result can only be damage to others and harm to yourself.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - South Korea

The two sides are like two accelerating trains coming towards each other. The question is, are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision?

There remains a chance of resuming talks, there is still hope for peace. To defuse the looming crisis on the peninsula, China proposes that as a first step, North Korea may suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the halt of the large-scale US-South Korea exercises.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Sanctions

The two sides are like two accelerating trains coming toward each other, and neither side is willing to give way. The question is: Are both sides really prepared for a head-on collision?

Mar 07 2017 - Sanctions

The two sides are like two accelerating trains coming toward each other, with neither side willing to give way. The question is: Are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision?
