王毅:各位记者朋友,大家好!今年的记者会是在一个特殊的时间节点召开的,世界各国正在奋力抗击新冠肺炎疫情。借此机会,我愿首先向全力拯救生命的各国医护工作者致以崇高敬意,向所有不幸逝去的罹难者表示深切哀悼。同时,我也要向在这场疫情中给予中国理解、关心和帮助的各国政府和人民致以衷心感谢。病毒打不倒人类,人类必将战胜疫情。至暗时刻终将过去,光明已在前方。下面,我愿回答大家的提问。

Wang Yi: Friends from the media, good afternoon. This year's press conference is held at a special time as countries around the world are battling COVID-19. I wish to take this opportunity to salute health workers worldwide who are doing their best to save lives and to mourn the lives tragically lost. I'd also like to say thank-you to all the governments and nations who have given understanding, care and assistance to China in its COVID-19 response. The virus cannot defeat humanity; we will eventually prevail. The darkest hour will pass. Looking ahead, we can see light and hope. With these words, I'm happy to open the floor for questions.

《人民日报》记者:人们从这场疫情可以得到的最重要启示是什么?

People's Daily: What's the most important thing people can learn from COVID-19?

 

王毅:这场疫情给我们带来的最大启示是:各国人民的生命健康从来没有像今天这样休戚与共、紧密相连;我们也从来没有像今天这样深刻意识到,各国生活在一个地球村,人类实际上是一个命运共同体。

Wang Yi: In my view, the most important thing we could learn from COVID-19 is that the life and health of people in different countries have never been so closely connected. Also, it has never been made so clear to us that all nations live in the same global village and that humanity is in fact a community with a shared future.

 

病毒不分国界和种族,对全人类发起挑战。政治操弄只会给病毒以可乘之机,以邻为壑只能被病毒各个击破,无视科学只会让病毒乘虚而入。因此,习近平主席多次向全球呼吁,病毒是人类共同的敌人,只有团结起来,才能战而胜之。团结合作是战胜疫情最有力的武器。

The virus respects no borders or races. It poses a challenge to all humans without distinction. Political manipulation will give the virus loopholes to exploit; a beggar-thy-neighbor approach will leave each of us more vulnerable; rejection of science will allow the virus to wreak greater havoc. With this in mind, President Xi Jinping has made the case to the world time and again that the virus is the common enemy of mankind, and that the only way to defeat it is to pull together with solidarity and cooperation, which are the most effective weapons against the virus.

 

疫情以生命作为代价告诫我们,各国应超越地域种族、历史文化乃至社会制度的不同,携起手来构建人类命运共同体,共同维护好我们人类唯一可以生存的这个星球。而其中一个重要目标,就是加快建设人类卫生健康共同体。中国作为世界上负责任的国家,愿意为此作出自己的贡献。

Having claimed so many precious lives, COVID-19 serves as a stark reminder that countries must rise above differences in geography, race, history, culture and social system. We must work together for a community with a shared future and jointly preserve Planet Earth, the only home we have. One important goal in this regard is to speed up efforts to build a global community of health for all. As a responsible country, China will contribute its share to the realization of this goal.

 

中国国际电视台记者:受疫情和美国大选影响,中美关系日益紧张。您是否担心中美关系进一步恶化?

China Global Television Network: COVID-19 and the upcoming US presidential election are straining China-US relations. How concerned are you that China's relations with the United States could further deteriorate?

 

王毅:当前,美国已经成为世界上疫情最严重的国家,每天都有无辜的生命被病毒夺走。对于美国人民遭受的不幸,我们深表同情,由衷希望和祝愿美国人民能够尽快战胜疫情,早日恢复正常生产生活。

Wang Yi: The US has become the worst affected country; with every day that passes, many innocent lives are taken by the virus. I would like to express deep sympathy for what the American people are going through, and our sincere hope and best wishes that they will defeat the virus and resume normal life and work soon.

 

新冠肺炎疫情是中美两国的共同敌人。相互支持帮助是两国人民的共同心愿。疫情之初,美国很多社团、企业和民众向中国伸出援手。在美国陷入疫情后,中国政府、地方和各界人士也积极回报,向美方捐赠了大量急需的医疗物资。我们还为美方在华采购提供支持和便利,仅口罩一项就向美方出口了120多亿只,相当于为每个美国人提供了将近40只口罩。

COVID-19 is a common enemy for China and the US. Mutual support and assistance are the shared preference of our two peoples. Early on in China's response, many American organizations, companies and citizens extended a helping hand. When the US was hit by the virus, the government, local authorities and people of China reciprocated their kindness, generously donating large quantities of needed supplies. We also supported and facilitated US procurement of medical supplies in China. Take face masks for example. More than 12 billion masks have been exported to the US, which roughly means 40 masks for every American.

 

但令人遗憾的是,除了新冠病毒的肆虐,还有一种政治病毒也正在美国扩散。这种政治病毒就是利用一切机会对中国进行攻击抹黑。一些政客无视最基本的事实,针对中国编造了太多的谎言,策划了太多的阴谋。最近,人们把这些谎言汇编成册,晒在互联网上公诸于世。如果再有新的谎言,还会继续记录在案。这本谎言录越长,就越拉低造谣者的道德水平,越在历史上留下更多的污点。

It is most regrettable that while the coronavirus is still out there, a "political virus" is also spreading in the US and jumping at any opportunity to attack and slander China. Some politicians ignore the basic facts and make up countless lies and conspiracy theories concerning China. A list of these lies has been compiled and debunked online. New lies will be added to the list. The longer the list, the more it says about how low the rumor-mongers are willing to go and the more stains they will leave in history.

 

我要在此呼吁:不要再浪费宝贵时间,不要再无视鲜活的生命。中美两国当前最需要做的事情,首先是相互借鉴和分享抗疫经验,助力两国各自的抗疫斗争;第二是顺应国际社会期待,共同参与和推动抗疫多边合作,为全球抗疫发挥积极作用;第三是着眼疫情长期化和防控常态化,及早就如何减少疫情对两国经济以及世界经济的冲击展开宏观政策的协调沟通。

I call on the US side to stop wasting precious time and stop costing people's lives. China and the US need to work together on a number of urgent things. First, we may share our experience and learn from each other's best practices to bolster our respective responses to COVID-19. Second, we must do what the world expects of us, jointly participate in and advance multilateral cooperation against COVID-19 and make active contributions to the global response. Third, while getting prepared for a long fight against COVID-19 and maintaining our ongoing response, we must start to communicate and coordinate our macro-policies to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our economies and the world economy.

 

对于中美关系的现状和前景,中方历来主张,作为世界上最大的发展中国家和最大的发达国家,我们对世界和平与发展都承担着重大责任,应该本着对人类负责、对历史负责、对人民负责的态度,认真对待和妥善处理两国关系。中美合则两利,斗则俱伤,这是从几十年经验教训中得出的最精辟概括,需要双方谨记在心。

As for where we are and where we need to be in China-US relations, our position is consistent. As the largest developing country and the largest developed country, China and the US shoulder great responsibilities for global peace and development. It is imperative for us to seriously and properly handle our relations out of a strong sense of responsibility to humanity, to history and to our peoples. Both China and the US stand to gain from cooperation and lose from confrontation: this best captures what we have learned, positive and otherwise, from the past decades. Both sides should take this lesson to heart.

 

中美社会制度不同,但这是两国人民各自作出的选择,应当彼此予以尊重。中美之间确实存在不少分歧,但这并不意味着没有合作空间。当今世界上几乎所有全球性挑战,都有待中美两个大国协调应对。

China and the US have different social systems, but this is the result of the different choices made by our people, which we must respect. It's also true that we have many disagreements, but that doesn't preclude cooperation. When you think about the challenges facing today's world, almost all of them require coordination between China and the US.

 

中方始终愿本着不冲突不对抗、相互尊重、合作共赢精神,与美方共同建设一个协调、合作、稳定的中美关系。同时,我们也必须维护中国的主权和领土完整,维护自身的正当发展权利,维护中国人民历经磨难赢得的地位和尊严。中国无意改变美国,更不想取代美国;美国也不可能一厢情愿改变中国,更不可能阻挡14亿中国人民迈向现代化的历史进程。

China remains prepared to work with the US in the spirit of no conflict or confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation and build a relationship based on coordination, cooperation and stability. At the same time, China will defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity, its legitimate right to development, and its dignity and place in the world which the Chinese people have worked so hard to earn. China has no intention to change, still less replace, the US. It's time for the US to give up its wishful thinking of changing China or stopping 1.4 billion people's historic march toward modernization.

 

现在要警惕的是,美国一些政治势力正在绑架中美关系,试图将中美关系推向所谓“新冷战”。这种危险的做法是在开历史倒车,不仅会葬送两国人民多年积累的合作成果,也将损害美国自身的未来发展,危及世界的稳定与繁荣。两国各界有识之士都应当站出来予以制止。

It has come to our attention that some political forces in the US are taking China-US relations hostage and pushing our two countries to the brink of a "new Cold War". This dangerous attempt to turn back the wheel of history will undo the fruits of decades-long China-US cooperation, dampen America's own development prospects, and put world stability and prosperity in jeopardy. People with wisdom and foresight on both sides must step forward to stop it.

 

还是那句话,为了中美两国人民的根本和长远利益,为了人类的未来与福祉,中美双方应当,也必须找到一条不同社会制度、不同文化背景国家在这个星球上和平共存、互利共赢的相处之道。

In short, for the fundamental and long-term interests of the Chinese and American people and the well-being and future of humanity, China and the US should and must find a way of peaceful co-existence and mutually beneficial cooperation, demonstrating that this is possible between two countries with different systems and cultures.
