Spain, China Defend Multilateralism, Free Trade, Vow to Cooperate Further

MADRID – Spain and China on Thursday agreed to defend free trade, multilateralism and respect for international rules in order to achieve peace and stability.

The two nations’ foreign ministers Alfonso Dastis and Wang Yi, in Spain as part of the preparations for an upcoming visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, met for talks in Madrid, where they agreed to work together across all fields for mutual benefit.

Both identified “great possibilities for mutually beneficial cooperation” in infrastructure, connectivity, trade, environment, education and culture, including the promotion of their respective languages, Dastis told the press after their talks.

He said he hoped the Chinese president’s visit would present Spain with a chance to revitalize and strengthen the strategic partnership between the two countries.

Wang said the two countries shared similar, if not identical, views on international issues and pointed out they had “significant influence” on region and global levels.

China would continue to strengthen its cooperation with Spain in the context of the UN, the G20, the WTO on climate change, as well as the fight against terrorism or Iran’s nuclear program, he said.
