泽米尔.阿万 2024年5月8日 习近平主席于2024年5月5日至10日进行重要的欧洲之行。他的第一个目的地是法国,然后他将前往塞尔维亚和匈牙利,完成他的欧洲之行。这是他五年间的欧洲之行,具有重要意义,因为在这五年期间,全球事务发生了许多重要事件,包括COVID-19疫情爆发、乌克兰战争、中东动荡等。他的行程肯定会缩小欧洲与中国之间的分歧,并基于互利合作和协作取得进展。 法国是欧盟成员国、北约成员国和联合国安理会常任理事国,与美国是非常重要的盟友。美国利用其包括法国在内的欧洲盟友开展反华运动,旨在遏制中国,对抗中国的崛起。特别是自拜登总统上任以来,他采取了所有的冷战策略,并联合其他国家对抗中国。然而,法国始终强调“欧洲主权”,在许多联合国政策问题上投票反对美国的意愿。法国总统在2023年对中国进行了非常成功的访问,并表现出改善与中国双边关系的兴趣。 今年是中法建交60周年,是中法关系承前启后的重要里程碑。在这60年里,两国在独立、相互理解、战略眼光和合作共赢的原则基础上建立了牢固的友谊。双方携手走过了一段不平凡的历程,建立了紧密而持久的全面战略伙伴关系,为中西关系树立了榜样。 中法双边合作蓬勃发展,贸易和投资达到前所未有的水平。多年来,贸易额增长了近800倍,达到789亿美元,而累计双向投资超过260亿美元。随着2000多家法国公司深入中国市场,两国经济关系已成为深度共生关系,例如大亚湾核电站和天津的空客A320系列装配厂等旗舰项目。 作为欧亚大陆的不可分割的一部分,中国和法国代表着不同的文明,但我们共同致力于相互尊重和合作。我们的关系是各种文化和制度之间合作潜力的明证。在没有地缘政治冲突或根本利益冲突的情况下,我们的伙伴关系建立在独立思考、文化魅力和以结果为导向的合作之上。 在全球发展的十字路口上,作为两个朋友,中国准备加深与法国的交流与合作,引领双方关系进入生产力和创新的新时代。 展望未来,两国致力于丰富深度伙伴关系的经贸维度,开辟新的合作途径,促进创新。中国仍致力于进口高质量的法国产品,并延长签证豁免以增进人文交流。 此外,两国均决心深化中欧互利合作,认识到两国在塑造多极世界中发挥的关键作用。通过加强政治互信,拓展在绿色能源和数字经济等新兴领域的合作,两国可以为全球和平、稳定和繁荣作出贡献。 在诸如气候变化和地缘政治紧张局势等全球挑战之际,中国和法国团结一致,致力于多边主义和对话。通过秉持平等和相互尊重的原则,我们可以建立一个更加包容和和谐的国际秩序。 在庆祝中法建交60周年之际,马克龙总统和习近平主席重申了加强合作的承诺,涵盖从贸易和投资到文化交流和应对气候行动等各个领域。这种伙伴关系体现了共同对更加光明未来的愿景,基于相互尊重、理解和合作。 习近平主席访问法国突显了两国之间持久的友谊和共同致力于全球合作。在我们踏上这一旅程之际,让我们抓住机会深化相互关系,并为更加繁荣和和平的世界规划道路。 习近平主席的下一站将是塞尔维亚,这是中国的一个亲密可信的盟友。最后,他将访问匈牙利,这是自共产主义时代以来的又一个亲密朋友。 期待中欧成为全球发展的亲密伙伴,促进和平、稳定与繁荣。 泽米尔.阿万,工程师教授,汉学家(前外交官),巴基斯坦伊斯兰堡国立科技大学中国与全球化中心非常驻研究员。 Chinese President’s Europe VisitPresident Xi Jin Ping is on an important European trip from 5-10 May 2024.
