Beijing supports Europe as 'independent pole' - China FM

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi (pictured) asserted on Saturday that Beijing supports the role of Europe as an "independent pole" in a "multi-polarized" world.

During his talk with his French counterpart, Beijing's top diplomat invited France to "maintain tradition of mutual respect," and promote cooperation and "high-level interaction" with the world's second-largest economy.

China's willingness to bolster international cooperation was underlined during the past week by multiple Beijing officials, including Wang Yi himself, and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
