Chinese Ambassador to Zimbabwe
Speaking during Cyclone Idai assistance handover ceremony
"We support [the] efforts of Zimbabwe to uphold its sovereignty, national security and developmental interests. We do this because we understand how Zimbabwe feels about being interfered and sanctioned. It is an old trick for the U.S. to use sanctions to interfere in other countries' internal affairs in furthering its own interests."
Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan
Responding to criticism that progress on CPEC has stalled
"[The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor] is actually a long-term project. There is no specification of speed. Right now, we are working on community-based projects. The progress of the project cannot be judged by speed."
