China has said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s remarks against US sanctions were “not just the strong position of the Bangladeshi people, but also the mind of a large part of the international community, especially the developing world.”
“We have noted the recent remarks by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Indeed, while turning a blind eye to its own racial discrimination, gun violence and drug proliferation problems, a certain country has long been interfering in the internal affairs of Bangladesh and many other developing countries under the pre-text of democracy and human rights,” Spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Wang Wenbin said recently, commenting on sanctions on Bangladesh.
He said Bangladesh and China have been traditionally friendly neighbors.
“We firmly support Bangladesh in safeguarding its sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, upholding independent domestic and foreign policies, and pursuing a development path that suits its na-tional realities,” the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said.
He said they stand ready to work together with Bangladesh and other countries to oppose all forms of hegemony and power politics, uphold the UN-centered international system, the international order un-derpinned by international law, and the basic norms governing international relations based on the pur-poses and principles of the UN Charter, and build a community with a shared future for mankind.
