2018/06/16

On 14 June 2018, Ambassador Zhang Ming met with Mr. Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations.

Ambassador Zhang said that China places importance on the EU and its relations with the EU. China firmly supports European integration and hopes to see a united, stable, prosperous and open Europe. As unilateralism is taking its toll, China and the EU, as two major forces for stability, need to join hands to uphold the multilateral system and to inject positive energy into the global landscape.

Commissioner Hahn said that the EU and China, with many shared interests, are working closely on a number of regional and international issues. Commissioner Hahn emphasized that it is important to abide by international law and consensus, promote multi-polarity, and work together on the basis of respect for the history, culture, and internal systems of different countries. As multilateralism is under pressure, the EU and China need to enhance communication and cooperation.

Ambassador Zhang and Commissioner Hahn also exchanged views on the neighborhood policy of China and the EU.
