China treats Antigua and Barbuda with full respect even though the country is one of the smallest in the world, Gaston Browne, the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, a

country located in the Caribbean region of Central America, spoke highly of the continuous development of bilateral relations over the past 40 years in a recent interview with China Media Group (CMG).

He said the relationship between Antigua and Barbuda and China is one of the best examples of the relationship between a major country and a small one, and is expecting the friendly relationship to become even stronger.

China and Antigua and Barbuda established formal diplomatic relations in 1983 and January 1 next year marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

Browne said he believes the relationship between China and Antigua and Barbuda is at an all-time high. Over the decades, China has been the country that given Antigua and Barbuda the most support, which has helped its development in all aspects, including the recent reconstruction and expansion project of St John’s Harbour.

The prime minister also expressed that China’s proposals to promote the building of a human community with a shared future and a new type of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation are crucial to safeguarding fairness, justice and development for the world.

  1. Our relationship with China has little to do with respect. Of course they respect us, that is how their culture is overall. The issue is that they are strategic people and know how to take advantage, kindly. Similar to African countries and the same loans they provided. How much has Antigua given away to the people of China, and at what cost? That’s where the issues lie.

  2.

    Why do politicians make such ridiculous statements? To satisfy who? JUSTICE in China, since when? He must have forgotten the Uighurs among others. I hope Gaston doesn’t default on the Port loan because Google what China did to Sirilanka with their port loan default. They had to hand over the port to China.

    • @My 2 Sense If you went to the bank and borrowed money to build a house and you default on the payment, what does the bank do? If we barrow the money or China builds the port for us with their money and labour, then in mutual respect, we should pay back China what is owed to them.

      We are a developing state and we need money to put infrastructure in place. Do you want us to wait on our Big brother or Parent country for assistance when we have been ignored?

      China has become a Super power and is behaving like one to extend it reach globally. Maybe our Big brother should reconsider its failing foreign policies.

  3. China does not respect us. They want something from us (our UN vote) and so they give us money and buildings. They are giving us loans to corner us into big debt so that when they call on us to do their bidding/voting, we have no choice as we are so highly indebted to them. You really think the Chinese would give a damn about this tiny island if we did not have something they wanted?

  4. China does not respect black people…they are known to have an intense dislike for black people. Chinese want black people to eat their food, shop in their stores and give them land. It is only the titles that the politicians have that keeps China polite while they continue in their agenda to take over and control these islands for THEIR own benefit and no one else’s. The Chinese Communist Party does not care about human or animal rights (e.g. cruel inhumane dog slaughter every year and killing animals for ivory and whatever else they think will enhance their “deficiencies”). China uses slave labour to build the substandard projects and attaches gouging entrapment loans to be paid by we, the people, or else we lose our ports of entry and hand over more land. There can be no doubt that the walled in very ugly military barracks that is undoubtedly a threat and an eyesore on this island is part of the eventual take over agenda. China is out for itself and the leaders and Caribbean people in these islands need to wake up and send them back from where they came! WAKE UP ANTIGUA do not allow A & B to become like now oppressed, abused and failing Hong Kong.
