Strategic autonomy of France and EU key to steadying relations with Beijing

China Daily | Updated: 2023-04-07 00:00

Leading a large delegation of businesspeople and cultural ambassadors, French President Emmanuel Macron is paying a visit to China from Wednesday to Friday. Despite the tremendous upheavals the world has experienced since his last visit to China more than three years ago, particularly the great lengths the United States has been going to in a bid to sow discord between China and European countries, thanks to the joint efforts of both sides, China-France relations have maintained a positive and steady momentum of stable development.

The productivity of Sino-French economic and trade cooperation, the positive contributions the two permanent members of the United Nations Security Council have made to world peace, as well as the rich harvest yielded by their people-to-people exchanges over the past decades are all testimony to how major countries should handle bilateral relations. In doing so, the two sides have actively promoted the common good of the world by upholding independence, equality, inclusiveness and mutual respect.

The two countries have made important achievements in aviation, aerospace, agriculture and food industries, showing the fallacy of the claims that cooperation with China entails risks and putting into stark relief the maliciousness of the "value diplomacy" Washington painstakingly peddles around the world.
