China-Europe relations not targeted at third party: Chinese FM



China-Europe relations are not targeted at, dependent on, or subjected to a third party, Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang said Tuesday.

He made the remarks at a press conference held on the sidelines of the first session of the 14th National People's Congress in Beijing.

No matter how the situation develops, China always regards Europe as a comprehensive strategic partner and supports European integration, Qin said.

China hopes Europe truly achieve strategic autonomy and lasting security and stability, he said.

China is willing to work with Europe to uphold true multilateralism, and to deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership, he added.
