China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi met the domestic and foreign press to elaborate on a raft of foreign policy issues. The press conference was held during China's annual parliamentary sessions over the weekend in Beijing.

Wang Yi listed three major developments in China's diplomatic strategy: a new model of major-country relations, an approach to diplomacy between neighboring countries emphasizing amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness, as well as a more balanced approach to upholding justice whilst pursuing national interests.

The foreign minister highlighted the country's active role as a major responsible country in 2014. He said China will seek justice and uphold equality in international relations and protect the rights of developing countries in particular.

The Foreign Minister also commented on Sino-Japanese relations. He urged the Japanese side to follow the example of post-war Germany in terms of reflecting on its war-time past.
He also said the upcoming visits by China's top leaders to Europe, Latin America and Africa will elevate ties with them to a new level.

So how do experts assess the comments by Foreign Minister Wang Yi? What changes are taking place in China's foreign policy?
