NEW DELHI: China’s ambassador to India Sun Weidong Thursday said the Communist Party of China (CPC) has always adhered to equity and justice and stood against imposing one’s own will on others, interfering in other countries internal affairs, and the practice of the strong bullying the weak but will remain critical of a few countries like the United States who label China as “authoritarian”, “human rights violator”, “aggressive” and “bullying” out of “ideological prejudice and self-interest”.

“The US does not have the qualification to play the role of a human rights lecturer’ from a higher position,” he said at a seminar titled ‘Sharing Experience on Party-Building, Promoting Exchanges and Cooperation, organised to mark the centenary of the founding of the CPC.

The ambassador also stressed that differences must be properly managed. “It is an objective fact that we have differences on issues like the boundary question. But differences are not and should not be the whole story of China-India relations. We should place the border issue in an appropriate position in bilateral relations and seek a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution through dialogue and consultations. We should consolidate the achieved results in disengagement, find a solution acceptable to both sides on the issue that needs emergency response through negotiation and consultation, gradually move towards regular management and control, in order to further ease the situation and avoid any recurrence of tensions due to misunderstanding and miscalculation,” he said.

CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI chief D Raja, DMK Lok Sabha MP S Senthilkumar, and All India Forward Bloc leader G Devarajan, along with Counselor of Bureau I of the International Department of the Central Committee of the CPC Du Xiaolin attended the seminar.

Lauding the CPC’s achievements and China’s economic development, the leaders said political parties should put forward their own visions and principles in the context of prevailing national conditions, and be committed to improving the political, economic and social conditions of the people and promoting social equity and justice. They also said China and India should adhere to the ‘Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence’ to strengthen economic and trade ties and local, people-to-people and party-to-party exchanges and cooperation. The principles include the need to enhance mutual understanding and trust, handle differences through dialogue and consultation, and strengthen coordination in multilateral affairs, so as to realise the peaceful coexistence of China and India as big neighbours.

Weidong also emphasised China’s support to India in its fight against the second wave of Covid-19 by providing large amounts of supplies and assistance. China and India must focus on development, strengthening cooperation and promotion of bilateral economic, trade and other pragmatic cooperation, he added.
