BEIJING - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Thursday that faced with the complex and volatile international environment, China will firmly be a force for peace, stability and progress in the world. 

Wang Yi held a press conference Thursday on the sidelines of the second session of the 14th National People's Congress, and answered questions from journalists from home and abroad on China's foreign policy and foreign relations. 

China will continue to speak up for justice, promoting win-win cooperation in 2024, Wang said, while warning that talking down China will backfire and misjudging China will result in missing opportunities. 

China will stand firmly on the right side of history and on the side of human progress, Wang said, and looked forward to jointly creating a shining "South moment" in global governance. 

Wang stressed that China will never allow Taiwan to be separated from its motherland. He said China's policy on the Taiwan question is clear, which is to continue striving for peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity. 

Neighborly relations

Asia is our common home, and to build this home well is the common aspiration of all countries in the region, Wang said. He stressed that China and neighboring countries should resolve differences and frictions through dialogue and consultation and jointly address various risks and challenges.

China will take justified actions to defend its rights in accordance with the law, and respond to unwarranted provocations with prompt and legitimate countermeasures in the South China Sea, Wang said.
