According to the Chinese news agency Xinhuanet, in Beijing today the Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, Zhang Qiyue, has expressed her government’s support for the EU constitution.

China, she says, believes a unified and integrated European Union (EU) will offer new opportunities for the further development of China-EU relations.

China always supports the EU integration process and is willing to see greater progress the EU will make in its political unification and its positive and constructive roles in European and international affairs, Zhang noted.

With support from such a liberal democracy, which itself provides a model for political integration which is so demonstrably benign towards its peoples, we can now see that any objections to the EU constitution are totally misplaced.
