中国否认7月向卡扎菲政权出售武器 - China denies selling weapons to the Gadhafi government in July print version
level 2
China's Foreign Ministry responds to accusations of selling weapons to the Gadhafi regime and not allowing the unblock of Gadhafi's capital in favor of the new Libyan leadership

外交部[1]昨日举行的例行发布会[2]上,有记者问,据报道,今年7月利比亚(Libya)代表团[3]曾来中国与中国公司接触,并签订购买武器[4]的合同,中方此举是否违反安理会[5]有关决议?另有消息称,中国公司可能通过第三方[6]向利比亚政权出售武器。

外交部发言人[7]姜瑜表示,在中国政府部门不知情的情况下[8],卡扎菲(Gadhafi)政权[9]曾于7月派人来中国与中方有关公司的个别人员进行接触,但中方公司未同利比亚签署军贸[10]合同,更未向利比亚出口[11]军品[12]。

姜瑜介绍,我国军品出口一向采取慎重,对所有军品出口实施严格管理,任何军品出口必须经政府部门严格审批[13]。

姜瑜强调,中国政府严格执行联合国(UN)安理会第1970号和第1973号决议,明确要求各军贸公司不从事违反决议的出口活动。

有记者提到,有关人士说,中方阻挠[14]安理会制裁委[15]解冻[16]利政府资产,中方对此有何回应?

"中方对解冻利资产原则上没有困难,但本着对利比亚人民负责任的精神,中方及安理会其他一些成员认为,上述申请还需进一步明确监管机制[17]",姜瑜说,"在申请国提交进一步信息后,中方参与协商[18]。"

姜瑜还提到,利比亚危机爆发初期,中方就向利比亚的邻国[19]提供援助,以帮助安置利比亚难民[20],随后还向利比亚提供人道主义援助[21]。

In a press conference held by the Foreign Ministry, reporters inquired concerning the reports that in July this year, a Libyan delegation has come to China and met with a Chinese company, signing a weapon purchase agreement, and asked whether this Chinese conduct is a violation of resolutions made by the UN Security Council? According to other information, the Chinese business has perhaps sold weapon to the Libya state through a third party.

Spokeperson of the Foreign Ministry, Jiang Yu, said that the Chinese government departments know nothing about such events. Gadhafi's state has sent people to China in July and met with very few members of a Chinese company, though the company did not sign a military trade agreement, nor did it offer the Libyan side military products for sale.

Jiang Yu explained that China's military export is always discreet, and strict regulation are implemented concerning military product export, any army product export must undergo strict governmental examination & approval.

Jiang Yu emphasized that China's government strongly implements the 1970 and 1973 UN Security Council resolutions, and is clearly demanding from all military trade companies not to violate the decided export regulations.

Some reporters mentioned that relevant personnel said that the Chinese side is obstructing the Security Council's sanction of unfreezing the Libyan government capital.

"The Chinese side in principle doesn't have a problem with unfreezing of Libyan property, but in line with the spirit of responsibility for the Libyan people. The Chinese side and some other Security Council members believe that the above mentioned application still requires further clear-cut supervision mechanism", Jiang Yu said. "After the applicant countries submit further information, China will participate in such talks."

Jiang Yu also mentioned that when the Libya crisis erupted, China offered assistance to Libya neighbor countries, helping to find a place for Libya refugees and after providing humanitarian help to Libya.
