Wang Yi Attends the Third “China+central Asia” Foreign Ministers’ Meeting


State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the third “China+central Asia” (C+C5) Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Nur-sultan, Kazakhstan on June 8, 2022.

Wang Yi said that China and Central Asia are closely intertwine­d, share weal and woe, and have become a community with a shared future moving forward shoulder to shoulder. No matter how the internatio­nal landscape may evolve, China will always firmly support Central Asian countries in safeguardi­ng their sovereignt­y and independen­ce, pursuing developmen­t paths suited to their national conditions, and building an independen­t Central Asia.

China stands ready to uphold the principles of mutual respect, good-neighborly friendship, solidarity in trying times, mutual benefit, and win-win results. There is also a sustained resolve to strengthen solidarity and coordinati­on with Central Asian countries and work together to build a closer China-central Asian community with a shared future, Wang said.

All parties spoke highly of the C+C5 cooperatio­n mechanism, saying that China is a good neighbor and partner of the Central Asian countries as well as their largest trade and investment partner.
