I have two questions. One is about China-Russia cooperation. What's China's view on the projects involved? What projects are there? The second question is: What do you think of the DPRK's opinion on other countries, including China?

Xu Dazhe:

I just mentioned that China's nuclear development is open to all, and we are promoting the "Belt and Road" initiative. We have been cooperating with many countries, including Russia. In particular, China's cooperation with Russia is going well, and we have made many joint achievements. There is a cooperative mechanism in place and, every year, we hold a joint meeting and develop guidelines on cooperation. Then, we conduct joint research on many issues under these guidelines. The construction of Tianwan Nuclear Power Plant in the past is an example of the achievements we have made together. Besides nuclear power, China and Russia have cooperated on many other issues, such as the technologies in regard to nuclear fuel cycle facilities. In my opinion, China and Russia will continue to have wide-ranging cooperation on nuclear energy development in the future.

Of course, we are also cooperating well with the United States, France and other major countries that are developing nuclear power. And we are cooperating well with the other developing countries. In this way, we can ensure that the whole world can enjoy the achievements China has made in nuclear energy development in the past six decades.

As for the second question, the DPRK conducted its fourth nuclear test on Jan. 6. This triggered strong responses from the other countries. The Chinese government has consistently and firmly adhered to urging the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and opposed such tests. We will continue to work with the other countries to achieve such denuclearization. Thank you.
