On September 6, 2023, Wang Yi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Foreign Minister of the Communist Party of China, met with Grenadian Foreign Minister Andall in Beijing.
Wang Yi said that Grenada is an important country in the Caribbean region and a friendly cooperative partner of China. Since the resumption of diplomatic relations, China and Grenada have always respected and treated each other as equals, and the relations between the two countries have become increasingly mature. The Chinese side highly appreciates Grenada’s adherence to the One-China principle, respect for China’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity thus will support Grenada’s exploration of a development path suited to its own national conditions, and is willing to work together with Grenada to open up new prospects for cooperation between the two countries.
Andall said that China is a great ancient civilization and has now made great development achievements. China has always fully respected and treated a small country like Grenada on an equal footing, providing valuable support for Grenada’s economic development and improvement of people’s livelihood. The Grenada-China cooperation has yielded fruitful results. Grenada cherishes its relations with China, will firmly abide by the one-China principle, and be China’s reliable friend. The Belt and Road Initiative, the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilization Initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping are conducive to promoting world peace, stability, development and justice, and are of particular significance to small and medium-sized countries. Grenada highly appreciates China’s commitment as a responsible major country, upholding fairness in international affairs, sharing development achievements with countries in the “Global South”, and is willing to actively participate in a series of important global initiatives by China.
Wang Yi stressed that China is willing to work with all parties to jointly build the “Belt and Road” with high quality and share opportunities, common development and common prosperity. As an ex officio member of the Global South, we will continue to firmly stand together with developing countries, safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of developing countries, especially small and medium-sized countries, and safeguard international fairness and justice.
