Beijing, October 14 (reporter Guo Chaokai) – with regard to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claim that the trilateral security partnership between the United States, Britain and Australia undermines regional stability, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said at a regular press conference on the 14th that the trilateral security partnership between the United States, Britain and Australia obeys and serves the “India Pacific strategy” led by the United States, and the United States has repeatedly advertised the so-called “freedom and openness”, But in fact, what we have done in this region is to engage in small circles and promote military blocs, which goes against the trend of the times and is unpopular

a reporter asked a question. It is reported that on the 13th local time, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview that the establishment of groups such as the trilateral security partnership between the United States, Britain and Australia will undoubtedly undermine regional stability. “It is good to make friends with each other, but it is bad for others”. What is China’s comment on this

Zhao Lijian said that China has repeatedly stressed that the cooperation between the United States, Britain and Australia on nuclear submarines poses a serious risk of nuclear proliferation and clearly violates the spirit of the Treaty on the non proliferation of nuclear weapons. It will not only have a far-reaching impact on the international nuclear non-proliferation system, but also bring five practical threats to regional peace and stability: first, create nuclear proliferation risks and impact the international nuclear non-proliferation system; The second is to induce a new round of arms race, which does not rule out causing other countries to follow suit or even cross the nuclear threshold; Third, undermine regional prosperity and stability and create regional tension; Fourth, undermining the construction of a nuclear weapon free zone in Southeast Asia runs counter to the efforts of ASEAN countries; Fifth, it led to the resurgence of cold war thinking, provoked regional camp antagonism and carried out geo zero sum game

Zhao Lijian pointed out that it is not difficult for people with a clear eye to see that the trilateral security partnership between the United States, Britain and Australia obeys and serves the “India Pacific strategy” led by the United States. The United States has repeatedly advertised the so-called “freedom and opening up”, but in fact, what it does in this region is to engage in small circles and promote military blocs. This is against the trend of the times and unpopular, and will inevitably arouse the vigilance and resistance of regional countries and the international community. (end)
