Storyline


The international influence of a country should be judged by the majority of the international community, said a spokesman of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday.

The spokesman, Lu Kang, said this at a regular news briefing when asked to comment on the remarks by U.S.President Barack Obama in his farewell address that rivals like Russia or China cannot match the influence of his country around the world.

Lu Kang said: "First, we feel that the thinking frameworks of China and the United States may be different. We have always advocated for the democratization of international relations. So, when we talk about our relations with the outside world or about the international relations, we tend to think that, with our own development, what more international public goods we can provide to the international community or other countries and what contributions we should make to them rather than what influence we will have over other countries."

"Second,", Lu said, "if we are to talk about influence, according to the Chinese logic, what influence a country has in the international affairs, this must be subject to the judgment by the majority of the international community rather than to its own judgment."
