Syrian presidential advisor Bouthaina Shaaban said in a July 8, 2022 interview with the Chinese state-run CGTN network that China wants to eliminate poverty and has a humane mentality of collaboration. She said that on the other hand, the West is one-sided and racist, and has invaded countries in order to impose its hegemony on them, leaving them in ruins.

Bouthaina Shaaban: "China wants to end poverty in its rural areas, and to help other countries reach economic growth. It wants to strike partnerships with other countries. The essential difference between China and the West is that the mentality of the Chinese leadership is a mentality of collaboration, a humane mentality, which sees all of humanity as brothers. Conversely, the mentality of the West is one-sided and racist against all our nations. They do not see us as people who are their equal. Whenever they went to other countries, they did so in order to impose their hegemony and their model. Unfortunately, all the countries they entered ended up in ruin. They had been much better off before [the West] came."
