On May 22, 2022, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with Foreign Minister Bilawal of Pakistan.

In response to the so-called Indo-Pacific strategy that the United States is vigorously promoting to contain China, Wang Yi said that the United States' Indo-Pacific strategy is causing more and more vigilance and concern in the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific countries. Because this so-called strategy has been exposed, it not only wants to erase the name of the Asia-Pacific region and the effective regional cooperation structure in the Asia-Pacific region, but also wants to erase the achievements and momentum of peaceful development created by the joint efforts of countries in the region for decades.

Wang Yi emphasized that the people of the Asia-Pacific region still have a fresh memory of the conflict and confrontation dominated by hegemony, and what they now pursue is national stability and a happy life. Asia-Pacific countries are generally reluctant to choose sides, and the mainstream voice is that they hope that countries can live in harmony and cooperate for win-win results. The trend of the times in the Asia-Pacific region is to promote regional integration and build an Asia-Pacific community with a shared future. In the face of a turbulent and changing world, the region has maintained overall peace and stability. The Asian development train took the lead in breaking out of the haze of the epidemic. The GDP growth rate in 2021 will be as high as 6.3%. It depends on the hard work of the people of the Asia-Pacific region.

Wang Yi said that the Indo-Pacific strategy concocted by the United States is under the banner of freedom and openness, but it is keen to form gangs and create small circles; the purpose of claiming to change China's surrounding environment is to try to contain China and make Asia-Pacific countries act as pawns of US hegemony. Facts will prove that the so-called Indo-Pacific strategy is essentially a strategy of creating divisions, a strategy of inciting confrontation, and a strategy of undermining peace. No matter what packaging or vests this strategy is made, it will ultimately be a failed strategy. The people of this region should warn the US side that the outdated Cold War script must never be repeated in Asia, and the turmoil and wars that are taking place in the world must never happen in this region.Editor/Ma Xue
