China in Pacific for common development: Chinese vice FM (2)


12:05, September 01, 2012

"This has been our approach, this has been our thinking, all along and I don't think there will be significant change in that regard," he added.

China was open to closer communication and coordination with other countries, including the traditional developed donor countries, and was "ready to exchange views, to compare respective practice and where possible and feasible, we're also open to work with them for the benefit of the recipient countries particularly the island countries here in this region."

Speaking on the same evening that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in the Cook Islands for the post-forum partners dialogue after the annual Pacific Islands Forum meeting, Cui pointed out that China had been coming to the dialogue for 23 years.

"We are here to be a good partner with the island countries; we are not here to compete with anybody," he said.

He pointed to the joint project between China, New Zealand and the Cook Islands to develop a water supply system in Rarotonga, announced earlier Thursday, as a good example China's willingness to cooperate on assistance that met the priorities of the island nations themselves.
