On July 14, 2016, Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who is accompanying Premier Li Keqiang for his visit to Mongolia, met in Ulaanbaatar with High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini.

Wang Yi expressed that extensive consensus has been reached at the just-concluded 18th China-EU Summit on enhancing China-EU cooperation under the new situation. China has sent positive signals of supporting the European integration process and delightfully seeing a united, stable and prosperous EU. China is willing to, together with the EU, implement the summit's consensus, further promote the development of China-EU relations and reinforce communication and cooperation in international and regional affairs, so as to jointly boost global trade liberalization and sustainable development of world economy.

Federica Mogherini noted that this EU-China Summit has yielded positive results. Both sides have conducted sound coordination and cooperation in international and regional issues. The EU attaches importance to China's important role in resolving issues such as the Afghan issue, the Iranian nuclear issue and the Middle East issue, and is willing to continue to carry out constructive cooperation with China.

Wang Yi reiterated China's solemn and just stance on the South China Sea arbitration case unilaterally initiated by the Philippines, and expressed that China does not participate in or accept this so-call arbitration fumed with political manipulation. China is none other than safeguarding the seriousness of the international rule of law and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Settlement of disputes between China and the Philippines should go back to the track of dialogue and consultation.
