Statement by H.E. Wen Jiabao

Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China

At the 14th China-ASEAN Summit as a Commemorative Summit

To Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of China-ASEAN Relations

Bali, 18 November 2011

Your Excellency President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono,

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted and excited to be back in the beautiful island of Bali after a period of eight years to attend the Commemorative Summit to Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of China-ASEAN Relations. This is the right time and place for us to express our thanks and appreciation to all those who have contributed their share to boosting the growth of China-ASEAN relations and who are working to advance these relations.

The establishment of dialogue relations between China and ASEAN in 1991 is a landmark event. It demonstrates how, with strategic vision and courage, our two sides followed the trend of the times and explored ways to promote regional cooperation, thus inaugurating the historic process of China-ASEAN relations.

- We have abided by the principle of mutual respect and non-interference in each other's internal affairs and worked to strengthen political mutual trust. The ASEAN countries follow the one China policy, support China's peaceful reunification, and accommodate China's concerns on major issues of principle involving China's sovereignty. China respects ASEAN countries' independent choice of path of development and values,supports ASEAN in handling disputes in its own way and opposes outside interference in ASEAN's internal affairs.
