Aprendendo com Deng I
"China's foreign policy can be summed up in two sentences. First, to safeguard world peace we oppose hegemony. Second, China will always belong to the Third World. It belongs to the Third World today, and it will do so even when it becomes prosperous and powerful, because it shares a common destiny with all Third World countries. China will never seek hegemony or bully others, but will always side with the Third World." (...) "we sincerely hope that no war will break out and that peace will be long-lasting, so that we can concentrate on the drive to modernize our country."
