France's proposition to stick to strategic autonomy has set up a model for healthy China-Europe ties, and will inject rationality into a Europe that is still bickering about a unified China policy, observers said after Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang stressed that the China-Europe relationship is not targeted at any third party, nor is it subjugated to or controlled by any third party.

Qin made the remarks when meeting with French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna on Wednesday. 

Hailing President Emmanuel Macron's state visit to China as a complete success, Qin said China is ready to work with France to follow through on the important consensus reached by the two heads of state, accelerate the advancement of exchanges and cooperation in various fields, and work for continuous development of the close and enduring comprehensive strategic partnership between China and France.
