Wang Yi Holds Telephone Talks with Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Philip Hammond of the UK
2014/07/29

On July 29, 2014, Foreign Minister Wang Yi held telephone talks with Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Philip Hammond of the UK at request.

Wang Yi congratulated Hammond on serving as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the UK. Wang Yi said that China and the UK are both permanent members of the United Nations (UN) Security Council and share broad common interests. China-UK relations are entering the uptrend channel and showing strong development momentum. He hoped that both sides join efforts to push China-UK relations to speed up and forge ahead along the new path laid by leaders of the two countries and to score more achievements.

Hammond said the UK and China are close cooperative partners and the UK side is committed to constantly deepening the bilateral relations oriented towards growth, innovation and reform.

In regard to the crash of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 and the situation in Ukraine, Wang Yi expressed that it is the focal point at present to earnestly implement the UN Security Council Resolution 2166 and that an independent, just and objective investigation should be carried out in line with the resolution as soon as possible. The Chinese side calls upon all parties to provide coordination and cooperation for the investigation and to ensure the international investigators to enter the site, so as to find out the truth at an early date and give the international community a clear explanation. Wang Yi said that the crash of the Malaysia Airlines flight further shows that the negative effects of the crisis in Ukraine have begun to spill over. He hoped that the crash can become a new opportunity for promoting the process of political settlement to the crisis in Ukraine and that all parties should do more work on promoting peace talks and do more for benefiting regional peace and stability. The Chinese side hopes that all parties in Ukraine carry out an inclusive dialogue as soon as possible and supports consultation among four parties, namely Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine and enhancing mediation of the three-party contact group of Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), hence to ultimately seek a settlement acceptable to all sides.

Hammond said that it should be ensured that the international investigators can enter the site where the flight MH17 crashed and conduct an independent investigation, so as to punish the perpetrators. The Ukrainian issue concerns the security of the region and the world as a whole and all parties should seek a political solution as soon as possible to prevent the issue from escalating.
