China, Colombia Agree to Protect Interests through Multilateralism

BEIJING – The foreign ministers of China and Colombia met Thursday in Beijing and reaffirmed their commitment to boost bilateral relations, and protect common interests through multilateralism.

The meeting between Wang Yi and Carlos Holmes Trujillo came during the latter’s official visit to China.

According to a foreign ministry statement, Wang underlined the need for strengthening cooperation and coordination in multilateral platforms such as the United Nations, and a multilateral system of trade, as well as safeguarding common interests and the interests of developing countries.

He also stressed on China’s huge interest in relations with Latin American countries and expressed his government’s willingness to work closely with Colombia.

Trujillo said Colombian President Ivan Duque had given a high priority to relations with China.

He said Colombia was committed to bolster senior level exchanges with China, improving mutual understanding, and promoting cooperation in the fields of trade, investment, agriculture, justice, culture, education and fight against corruption.

The Colombian minister also expressed support towards China’s defense of multilateralism and insisted on the need to protect free trade.

This is the first visit to China by a Colombian government official since Ivan Duque was elected president in June.
