Australia claims that many requests for dialogue with China have been rejected. Zhao Lijian:Australia knows where the problem lies.
Recently, at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on November 18, a reporter mentioned that Australia had recently tried They contacted China in accordance with the principle of mutual respect. However, they had repeatedly sought dialogue with China but were rejected by the Chinese side. They asked under what circumstances China will restart the China-Australia dialogue.
In response, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Zhao Lijian responded Said that the channel for dialogue between China and Australia is unblocked, and the Australian side is clear about the problem, and “the person who needs to untie the bell”; at the same time urges the Australian side to take practical actions to correct mistakes, and actively create an atmosphere for cooperation between the two countries in various fields condition.
Zhao Lijian’s response should be said to have acquiesced to the reporter’s question, that is, China and Australia have not had any dialogue recently And it was China who actively refused to engage in dialogue with Australia.
If you don’t know about China and Australia in the past year People who have seen changes in their relationships saw this news, combined with the fact that “Australia is based on the principle of mutual respect”. At first glance, it seems very strange, and it seems that China is at fault; but anyone who cares about current affairs will know that Australia has been in the past year. What damage has been done to China-Australia relations.
Zhao Lijian at the press conference the day before Mentioned Australia’s three major crimes:challenging China’s territorial sovereignty; suppressing the development of Chinese enterprises; and engaging in political manipulation on the epidemic. Looking at the contents of the two-day press conference together, it is obvious that the reason why Australia was rejected by China from the negotiating table was entirely on its own.
In simple terms, what Australia calls”in the principle of mutual respect”This premise is wrong, so China’s refusal to engage in dialogue with Australia is also reasonable.
The relationship between countries is pure Interest relationships may be affected by some personal emotional factors, but in the final analysis, interests are the main orientation. Obviously, after infringing on China’s interests, Australia suffered from China’s countermeasures, and immediately pretended to be a victim, trying to rely on the discourse power of the Western media to create an atmosphere that is not conducive to China, and relying on “tagging” to force China Close hand.
One point of Australia’s statement is correct, that is, the dialogue should be based on mutual Based on the principle of respect. Throughout the 70 years of diplomatic history of New China, China has always adhered to the”Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence”. After the reform, all attention has been paid to the development of the economy, and the foreign trade has generally embraced””Mutual benefit and win-win” concept to do business.
It can be said that China now seems to be The international public opinion field is quite passive because China has indeed placed itself in a relatively passive position, acting as a good old man to interact with all parties. But this does not mean that China will unconditionally tolerate all issues, especially those involving China’s core interests and development prospects.
In this case, Australia is actually not eligible to interact with China Respectful dialogue. The reason why he dared to want China to return to the negotiating table is to create a precedent-Australia and China are not equal, and Australia and China that violate China’s interests are equal.
This is to a certain extent the supremacy of white Australians The manifestation of ideology at the political level is also a true portrayal of Australia’s lack of a broad enough international vision and strategic vision.
It is foreseeable that practical actions in Australia Before using verbal language to prove its sincerity for dialogue, China will maintain a high pressure on Australia in both political and economic aspects.
And it is also foreseeable that this For Australia, it will be a dilemma, because on the one hand, there is the racial superiority and political correctness that the media has always promoted; on the other, there are economic and trade relations that concern the vital interests of its citizens. A pragmatic country has already softened its status like Singapore, and those who are still drowning in the bloody glory of the past and unwilling to accept the reality will inevitably be punished by the reality.
