CCTV reporter of CCTV: the CPC Central Committee and the State Council recently issued the opinions on deepening the battle of pollution prevention and control. Some commentators said that this is a new measure of China to promote the synergy of pollution reduction and carbon reduction and promote global climate governance. Could the spokesman give further information

Wang Wenbin: on November 7, the CPC Central Committee and the State Council issued the opinions on deepening the battle of pollution prevention and control. The opinions put forward that by 2025, China’s carbon dioxide emission per unit of GDP will be reduced by 18% compared with that in 2020, the concentration of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in prefecture level and above cities will be reduced by 10%, the number of days with excellent air quality will reach 87.5%, and by 2035, the carbon emission will reach its peak, the ecological environment will be fundamentally improved, and the goal of building a beautiful China will be basically achieved. The Opinions also made specific arrangements to accelerate the promotion of green and low-carbon development, deepen the defense war of blue sky, clear water and pure land, and improve the modernization level of ecological environment governance

we have repeatedly stressed that China not only says but also does to deal with climate change; Not only has the goal been determined, but also a specific timetable and road map have been formulated. The issuance of the opinions is another new measure for China to base itself on the new development stage, implement the new development concept, build a new development pattern, and coordinate pollution control, ecological protection and climate change. It shows China’s firm determination and action to deal with global climate change. Over the years, we have taken the initiative to assume international responsibilities consistent with national conditions and actively explore a green and low-carbon development path. The coordinated treatment of pollution and carbon reduction is one of the important tasks. Carbon dioxide and conventional pollutant emissions have the characteristics of the same root, homology and process, mainly from the combustion and utilization of fossil energy. Reduce the utilization of fossil energy and promote the integrated planning, deployment, promotion and assessment of pollution and carbon reduction, which is conducive to the simultaneous implementation of carbon peak carbon neutralization and the fundamental improvement of the ecological environment

looking forward to the future, China will continue to abide by its commitments, further promote the action of reaching the peak of carbon, and effectively implement the national independent contribution goal to address climate change in 2030 by comprehensively establishing a total carbon dioxide emission control system, building and improving the national carbon emission trading market, and strengthening the control of methane and other non-carbon dioxide greenhouse gas emissions, Make China’s contribution to the global response to climate change

What’s your comment on this

Wang Wenbin: on your first question, China supports Pakistan in hosting the expanded meeting of the “China US Russia +” consultation mechanism on Afghanistan, and supports all international efforts conducive to promoting peace and stability in Afghanistan and building consensus among all parties. Yue Xiaoyong, special envoy of the Chinese Ministry of foreign affairs for Afghanistan, will lead a delegation to attend the meeting

on your second question, Australia is aware that the current difficult situation in China Australia relations is caused by Australia alone. For some time, many people of insight in Australia have made objective and rational voices on China Australia relations and put forward useful suggestions on improving China Australia relations, which are worthy of serious listening and reflection by the Australian government. Australia should face up to the crux of the setback in China Australia relations, treat China and China’s development objectively and rationally, earnestly handle bilateral relations in accordance with the principle of mutual respect and equal treatment, correct the wrong words and deeds taken in China relations for some time, and do more things conducive to enhancing mutual trust and promoting practical cooperation between the two countries

Pakistan News Agency: Pakistan has participated in China International Import Expo for four consecutive years. A senior Pakistani official said that the Expo will help promote China Pakistan trade and increase Pakistan’s exports to China. How do you respond to this

Wang Wenbin: China welcomes Pakistan to participate in the China International Fair for four consecutive years. Since the Expo was held, the “report card” has been very bright, and the intended turnover has increased year by year, becoming an important window for global enterprises to share China’s huge market opportunities. The number of participating countries and enterprises in this fair reached a new high, of which the “return rate” of the world’s top 500 and industry leading enterprises exceeded 80%

during the Expo, more than 100 supporting on-site activities were also held.

The Ministry of foreign affairs answered reporters’ questions on US Congressmen’s visit to Taiwan and China Australia relations

RIA Novosti reporter: Taiwan media reported on Tuesday that several US Congressmen visited Taiwan by US plane. What’s your comment on this

Wang Wenbin: the visit of relevant members of the US Congress to Taiwan seriously violates the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques. China firmly opposes this and has made solemn representations to the US side, demanding that the US side immediately stop any form of official exchanges with Taiwan and not send any wrong signals to the “Taiwan independence” separatist forces, So as not to seriously damage China US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait

Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory. The one China principle is an unshakable norm in international relations. China’s national reunification is an irresistible historical trend. The Taiwan Strait cannot block the mighty torrent of national reunification for more than 1.4 billion Chinese people, including Taiwan compatriots. The clumsy performances of a small number of “Taiwan independence” elements and foreign politicians are just a few noises in the process of China’s reunification and can not change the firm pattern of 180 countries around the world adhering to the one China principle

we urge relevant US Congressmen to recognize the situation: it is a dangerous game to associate with “Taiwan independence” forces; Playing with fire with “Taiwan independence” will eventually lead to fire. All adventurous and provocative acts against the general trend of China’s reunification are like ants trying to shake trees and are doomed to failure

Reuters: the 14th Dalai Lama said today that he had no plans to meet with Chinese leaders. Is China willing to resume dialogue with the “Tibetan government in exile”

Wang Wenbin: the so-called “Tibetan government in exile” is an out and out separatist political group. It is an illegal organization that completely violates China’s constitution and laws. No country in the world recognizes it. The policy of the Chinese central government on contacts and talks with the 14th Dalai Lama is consistent and clear, and the door to talks is always open. I would like to emphasize that the interview can only talk about the Dalai Lama’s personal future, not the so-called “Tibet issue”. What the Dalai side needs to do is to truly abandon its stand of splitting the motherland, stop its activities of splitting the motherland, and win the trust of the central government and the Chinese people with practical actions

reporter from Tokyo Broadcasting Corporation of Japan: yesterday, the Chinese people’s Liberation Army conducted a cruise in the Taiwan Strait. Is this related to the visit of US Congressmen to Taiwan

Wang Wenbin: please ask the competent department about the combat readiness police patrol of the Chinese people’s Liberation Army. I have just answered the question of US Congressmen visiting Taiwan

Reuters: Chinese officials said that Hong Kong and the mainland may resume customs clearance to a certain extent in January. This is earlier than previously expected. What is the speaker’s comment on this

Wang Wenbin: I have answered relevant questions before. You can refer to them
