As the Guest of Honor of the 14th Beijing International Film Festival, Brazil is endeavoring to promote cultural exchange with China through the movies. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Brazil. Four Brazilian movies reflecting cultural and regional diversity have been selected for the festival.

Cassius Rosa, vice minister of the Ministry of Culture of Brazil, said the two countries should deepen exchanges in the film industry.

"I believe there is no better medium than films to help strengthen mutual understanding and cultural exchange between two countries. Movies help us understand the situation of both sides and deepen our friendship. Through films, we can introduce the rich and diverse Chinese culture that spans thousands of years to the Brazilian people. At the same time, we can showcase the joyful Brazilian character and the immense potential of the Brazilian market to our Chinese friends. We hope to create conditions that will not only facilitate introduction of Brazilian movies to China, but also Chinese movies to the Brazilian market," said Rosa.

This year's film festival has also seen the launch of a series of forums to create a platform for international guests to meet with Chinese companies involved in production, copyright, distribution, and other fields. It provides space and opportunities for cooperation between Chinese and overseas film institutions, attracting filmmakers and outstanding films from around the world, and jointly promoting the exchange and mutual learning of film cultures.

Opened on April 18, the 14th Beijing International Film Festival will run through to April 26.

Launched in 2011, the festival aims to boost exchange among global industry players. It has been attracting increasing international attention thanks to China's booming film market.

DPP authorities' secession attempts futile, self-deceptive: spokesman

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities' separatist activities are self-deceptive attempts, and they will not hinder the unstoppable trend toward China's reunification, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday.

Recently, Taiwan's "foreign affairs department" issued a statement protesting the mainland's condemnation over the Taiwan authorities' bribery of Guatemalan leaders and officials in exchange for political support.

Commenting on that at a regular press conference in Beijing, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said, "The facts and evidence on DPP authorities' 'dollar diplomacy' with Guatemala are clear and solid. Guatemala's former president openly admitted that he had received bribery from the Taiwan authorities in exchange for maintaining so-called 'diplomatic relations' with Taiwan. Last year, Taiwan's hospital project in Guatemala was involved in a corruption case. Relevant Guatemalan officials were put into jail. This is just one example of the Taiwan authorities' 'dollar diplomacy.' No matter how angrily they protest or try to deny it, the fact that they sought political support through 'dollar diplomacy' will not change."

"Around the world, 183 countries have established diplomatic ties with China. That proves the DPP authorities' reckless pursuit of 'Taiwan independence' and secession to be futile and self-deceptive. Whatever the DPP authorities does, it will not shake the one-China principle, and will not hinder the unstoppable trend toward China's reunification. We hope that Guatemala and the very few other countries will come to recognize where the trend leads and make the right decision soon," he continued.
