"As for internal affairs in different countries, we must respect wishes of their parties and people. We should respect their rights to find appropriate ways for development, to explore and to solve problems on their own. Foreign parties should not act as ‘patriarchal party’ to intervene in other countries' domestic affairs. We are opposed to any kind of intervention and we will not interfere with others. This should be regarded as an important principle."--Deng Xiaoping
