The original title: Lu Kang responded to Pompeos unfriendly remarks on China: Words and deeds are disgusting, but stop it!
[Global Times global network reporter Wang pan pan, 04, 15,]2019, foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang held a regular press conference.
Q: According to media reports, US Secretary of State Pompeo made unfriendly remarks on China-Latin America relations during his recent visit to Chile and other Latin American countries. How do you comment?
A: China-Latin America cooperation adheres to the concept of mutual respect, equality, mutual benefit and win-win cooperation, focusing on common development, which has effectively helped Latin American economic development and the improvement of peoples well-being. Take Chile as an example. Last year, China-Chile trade amounted to US$42.8 billion. Chiles exports to China amounted to US$26.9 billion, an increase of 26.9% over the previous year. In the same year, Chinas investment in Chile exceeded US$6 billion, which played a positive role in promoting Chiles economic and social development. Facts have proved that China brings opportunities to Latin American countries. I also note that Pompeo has made groundless accusations about Venezuela. Chinas position on Venezuela is clear and consistent. It safeguards the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and regional peace and stability. We strongly oppose the slander and deliberate provocation of US Secretary of State Pompeo against China-Latin America relations, which is irresponsible and unreasonable. For a long time, the United States has regarded Latin America as its backyard to exert pressure, threaten and even subvert other countriespolitics. Justice is in the heart, who is a true friend, who is a false friend, who ignores the rules and disseminates chaos, I believe Latin American countries will make a correct judgment.
It should be pointed out that for some time, some American politicians have been carrying the same album, slandering and slandering China all over the world, stirring up fires everywhere, stirring up dissension and disgusting words and deeds. A lie is a lie. If you tell it a thousand times or a lie, Mr. Pompeo can stop it! __________
