No pre-conditions attached in China's aid to Pacific island countries
Adjust font size:

China has never attached any political pre-conditions in its economic aid to countries in the Pacific islands, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang on Thursday.

He made the remarks when commenting on a report of an Australian research institute saying China's economic aid to the Pacific island countries were not transparent.

He said the relation between China and the Pacific island countries had developed in a good momentum which helped promote regional peace, stability and economic and social sustainable development.

Qin added China, with the principle of reciprocity, had provided aid to the Pacific island countries within its own capacity to improve the economy and living standard of the region.

"China does not take this as an excuse to interfere in the other country's internal affairs, or to add any political condition," he said.

Qin said China is opposed to "dollar diplomacy" and would continue the friendly relations with the Pacific island countries based on the UN Charter and its principles of peaceful coexistence.
