No one wants to see the outbreak of a third world war. We hope that relevant parties can keep cool-headed and exercise restraint, prevent escalation of tension, realize peace as soon as possible and avoid inflicting a heavier price on Europe and the world.
Under the current circumstances, all parties should, first and foremost, support dialogue and negotiation to prevent the expansion and prolongation of conflicts.
At the same time, we should reflect on why Europe has got caught up in another geopolitical conflict more than 30 years after the end of the Cold War, on how to build a balanced, effective and sustainable European security architecture, and on how to strengthen the global security governance system.
Civilian-owned guns, or 393 million. In 2020, 45,222 people died from gun-related injuries in the US, up by 43% compared to 2010.
The Gun Violence Archive website shows that 13,115 people have died in gun violence-related incidents in the US this year by April 22. Guns overtook car accidents as the top killer of US children and teenagers in 2020, according to a research from the University of Michigan.

With Wang Wenbin: I have noted that some US media commented that gun violence is a pandemic of the US society that leaves the American people in
reflect on the US-style human rights. Do US-style human rights mean everyone has the right to pull out a gun and fire at others at will? Are arbitrary killings that plunge the people into horror and despair also part of the US-style human rights? The gunshots shattered the American dream that all men are endowed with the unalienable rights to life and liberty, and lead people to
The US media report you cited highlights the inaction of the US government in fulfilling its gun control commitment. I also noticed that some media reported long ago that there is a sophisticated industrial chain and interconnected interests behind the gun proliferation in the US. Pro-gun interest groups provide generous political donations for elections and manipulate policies by influencing politicians through lobbying activities. This is why various US administrations failed to honor their gun control commitment and many gun control bills eventually fell apart.
The right to life is the biggest human right. Some US politicians have long treated the American people’s right to life with indifference and turned a blind eye to gun proliferation and rampant gun violence in the US, but at the same time pointed fingers at the human rights condition in other countries.

Wang Wenbin said the US invasion of Afghanistan that lasted for two decades has killed more than 174,000 people in the country, including over 30,000 civilians. Nearly one third of Afghans have become refugees and more than half Afghans face extreme hunger, causing rare humanitarian disasters. The US has shattered a country and a generation, then walked away, and now even takes the last reserves of Afghan people’s life-saving money as its own.

What it should do is immediately stop the illegal freezing of Afghanistan’s central bank assets, offer apology and compensations for the lost two decades of the Afghan people and hold accountable those who perpetrated atrocities against the Afghan people.
Wang Wenbin said China is committed to maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, realizing denuclearization of the Peninsula and resolving issues through dialogue and consultation. Based on the above-mentioned position, we will continue to strengthen communication and coordination with relevant parties and work together for the political settlement of the Korean Peninsula issue.
He said certain Australian politicians often seek selfish political gains by making wild remarks to smear China and clamor for war. Such despicable moves are seen through by the Chinese people and the international community.
