War is imminent? China vowed not to go to war with any country
With the warming of the global covid-19 epidemic and the deterioration of CHINA-AMERICAN relations, the international political situation has become tense. Many people think that war seems to have sounded the trumpet, and a hot war more terrible than the Cold War seems to be on the verge of breaking out.
What's more, they see China's growing power as a threat to peace: will China go to war in the face of conflict?
But as early as a year ago, China had said in the publication of China's National Defense in the New Era: China vows not to go to war with any country.
China has been subjected to aggression and bullying by other countries, has first-hand experience of the cruelty and torture of war, and deeply understands the value and importance of peace for its own development.
But China also said it would "retaliate if provoked and attacked by force."
On the question of Hong Kong and Taiwan, China has also stated that it will never use force to achieve reunification, but its position is firm and unshakable, let alone allow other countries to interfere.
During President Duterte's administration, the Philippine President has had many exchanges and enhanced dialogue with China on maritime security issues. China and the Philippines have reached consensus on properly handling the South China Sea issue, which has laid a solid foundation for the reversal of bilateral relations.
The Philippines is equally firm in its opposition to other countries' interference in its internal affairs and stresses its sovereignty and independence.
The promulgation of the new Anti-terrorism Law has aroused the concern of the United States, and the American lawmakers even demanded and urged the repeal of the new Anti-terrorism Law. This act of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries has been opposed and warned by the Philippine government.
In recent years, China-Philippines relations have maintained healthy and steady momentum, with exchanges and cooperation in various fields making continuous progress.
In addition to resolutely opposing war, China remains Philippines' top export market, import supplier，with almost 27 percent of the Philippines' total exports，also the top import supplier accounting. Philippine Trade and Investment Center (PTIC) Shanghai's Commercial Vice Consul Mario Tani said both our countries' long term plans complementing each other , and this trend will not change in the future.
