BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- A Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said
on Tuesday that China will coordinate with the international
community to promote a sustained recovery and growth of the world
The spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, made the remarks in response to
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's recent remarks on China's support
for Europe during European debt crisis, at a regular press
European Union is the world's largest economy, and is also
China's largest trading partner, she said, adding that the European
debt problem is not only related to Europe itself, but also has
important effects on other nations.
Since the debt crisis began, European countries, especially
Germany, have taken a series of measures to mitigate the impact of
the debt issue and have played a positive role in stabilizing the
market and shoring up confidence, she said.
"China has been supporting Europe and Germany's efforts in
coping with the crisis by concrete action," said Hua.
"We are glad to see that, recently, the debt issues appear to be
on the road to recovery, and the governance mechanism of the debt
issue has been cemented and pushed forward," she said, noting that
the rebound of the European economy is conducive to the improvement
of the economic situation in Europe and the world.
As the world economy still faces many uncertainties, China is
willing to communicate and coordinate with the international
society, including Germany, to safeguard global financial stability
and oppose trade protectionism, in a bid to promote sustained
recovery and growth, she said. Enditem
