CCTV News:On the 14th, during a video meeting with Philippine Foreign Minister Rochin, Foreign Minister Wang Yi expounded on China’s principled position on the South China Sea issue and pointed out that the United States recently issued a so-called statement on the South China Sea issue. Will damage the reputation of the United States.

Wang Yi pointed out that with the joint efforts of China and ASEAN countries, the situation in the South China Sea has generally remained stable. However, the United States is afraid of the South China Sea from chaos and continues to make troubles due to geopolitical needs. China’s warships, Yaowuyangwei, promote the militarization of the South China Sea. This dangerous trend deserves high vigilance from countries in the region. A few days ago, the United States issued another so-called statement, blatantly violating its unsatisfactory commitment on the disputed issues in the South China Sea, deliberately provoking relations between China and ASEAN countries, in an attempt to create conflicts and undermine regional stability. This rebellious approach will only damage the reputation of the United States. China will continue to work with regional countries, including the Philippines, to persist in handling maritime issues through dialogue and consultation. On the basis of abiding by the”Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea”, we will reach a binding”Code of Conduct in the South China Sea” at an early date and jointly maintain Peace and stability in the South China Sea. When dealing with maritime issues, we should look forward together and not go back to the past.
