The days when a few Western powers could wantonly interfere in China's internal affairs and smear China by making up stories and fabricating lies are long gone, said Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Tuesday at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Guilin, South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Western countries' disparaging of China on Xinjiang issues cannot stop China from moving forward, said Wang, after the EU and several Western countries imposed sanctions on China.

Wang said over 80 countries jointly or separately voiced support for China's stance on the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region at the United Nations Human Rights Council, which says enough about which side justice is on, and certain Western forces' manipulation does not represent the international community.

The West's perverse actions cannot stop China from moving forward nor can they reverse the tide of historical development, Wang said.

Wang also talked about the cooperation between China and Russia on the resumption of work and production amid  normalized COVID-19 prevention and control work.

Wang said China and Russia will speed up the process of implementing a standardized nucleic acid testing system, promote health certificates for international travel and establish mutual recognition of a green code.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in China for his two-day visit on Monday, just two days after the China-US meeting in Anchorage, Alaska. Chinese experts said it's normal for the two like-minded partners to coordinate on crucial information, but it doesn't mean the two major powers are forming an anti-US alliance, as this would be unnecessary and outdated.
