Ambassador Liu Xiaoming Gives Live Interview on ITV's Peston on Sunday


On 19 November 2017, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming gave a live interview on ITV's Peston on Sunday, in which he shared his views on the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. He also answered questions about the North Korea and the latest developments in Zimbabwe.


The transcript of the interview is as follows:

佩斯顿: 刘大使,很高兴见到你。你刚从北京回来,出席了极为重要的中国共产党第十九次全国代表大会。外界普遍认为,十九大之后,习近平主席成为自毛泽东以来最有权威的中国国家领导人,你怎么看?

Peston:Very nice to see you, Mr. Ambassador. You are just back from that incredibly important Congress in Beijing. Is it right--it was widely reported as establishing President Xi as perhaps the most powerful leader China has had since Mao--is that right? Is he now the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao?


Ambassador Liu: I would say, he has been re-elected as the General Secretary of the Party and he will lead the country into a new era of building socialism with Chinese characteristics.

佩斯顿: 说到中国特色社会主义,我注意到,和英国一样,中国社会也有着巨大的贫富差距。中国是一个社会主义国家,能够接受这样的贫富差距吗?

Peston: You use the phrase, socialism with Chinese characteristics? One of the things that is very striking about China, as it is in this country, is that there is a big gap between rich and poor in China. Is that acceptable in a socialist country?


Ambassador Liu: There is a gap, I wouldn't say big gap, if you compare China today, the gap between rich and poor, with some other developing countries.

佩斯顿: 有许多亿万富豪,不是吗?

Peston: A lot of billionaires?


Ambassador Liu: That is exactly what the Party Congress is trying to address. We realize there is unbalanced and inadequate development in China. A lot has to be done to address the ever-growing needs of the people for a better life. That includes, as the President said during the Congress, we will do everything possible to address this gap between poor and rich. We will do everything we can to elevate the poor population. In China right now there are still 40 million. In the past 30 years we had elevated 700 million people out of poverty.


Peston: That's a remarkable achievement.


Ambassador Liu: The target for the Party and the government is to get those 40 million people out of poverty by the year 2020. That means we will wipe out poverty, according to the poverty line in China, when we successfully build a moderately prosperous society in China.

佩斯顿: 今天要谈的内容很多。你曾担任中国驻朝鲜大使相当长的时间……

Peston: There's a lot to talk about. You were Ambassador to North Korea for quite some time...


Ambassador Liu: For three and half years.

佩斯顿: 西方的关切是,中国没有对朝鲜施加足够压力,迫使其放弃核试。

Peston: In the West, there's concern that China isn't putting enough pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear tests. What do you say to that?


Ambassador Liu: That's not true. As a matter of fact, China has done everything we can. First of all, we tried to dissuade North Korea from developing their nuclear weapon programme. When I was Ambassador to North Korea, I did my best to convince them that it would not be in their interest to develop nuclear weapons.


Peston: Why have they gone ahead?


Ambassador Liu: Because they have their legitimate concerns. The North Korea nuclear issue is an issue of trust and an issue of security. Because of the distrust between North Korea and the United States--- it is the root cause of this issue--- so that's why from day one we set a goal for the Six-Party Talks. Three goals: First is to make sure that Korean peninsula will be nuclear free. Second, we should address this issue with a comprehensive approach. So that's why we are calling for the normalisation process, we are calling for the…


Peston: Shouldn't there be tougher sanctions? Many say China should impose tougher sanctions.


Ambassador Liu: We have voted all along since 2006, when I was the Ambassador. You know, since then, there have been 16 UN sanction resolutions on North Korea. China voted along and China strictly abided by the resolutions and implemented our obligation. The important thing you have to realize is you can't impose sanctions for sanctions' sake. Sanction is a means but not the purpose. The purpose is to get North Korea to stop their nuclear weapons. So you need to engage them. So the UN resolution is not only about sanctions.

Peston: No, no.

Ambassador Liu: It is also about negotiations, about diplomatic solutions…


Peston: Are you pessimistic about North Korea at the moment?


Ambassador Liu: No, I am still cautiously optimistic. I still believe that if all parties could engage each other and we encourage North Korea to return to the negotiation table, we can still find diplomatic solution to this crisis.


Peston: Can I ask one other question about the international picture? China has big economic interests in Zimbabwe. Is China pleased with seeing the end of Mugabe?


Ambassador Liu: You know, it has always been China's policy not to interfere into the internal affairs of other countries. Zimbabwe is a good friendly country to China and we supported the Zimbabwe people in their days for independence, and later on for their development. We will never interfere into their internal affairs…


Peston: Can I press you on that, because there are widespread reports the army would not have taken the action against Mugabe without the support of China?


Ambassador Liu: No, that's not true. We never interfere into their internal affairs. This is up to them, the Zimbabwe people, with regard to what to do with their future of their country. We certainly hope that things will be resolved peacefully.


Peston: Very nice to see you again, Mr. Ambassador. As always it is a great pleasure talking to you!
