(ECNS) -- Many in the international community shared the view that the economic and financial policies of the U.S. pose the biggest challenge to global financial stability, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said at a news briefing in Beijing on Thursday.

Wang pointed out that global financial stability bears on the recovery and development of the world economy and the common interests of all countries, and requires the world’s common efforts. The notable global financial risks have much to do with the aggressive adjustments of the monetary policies in the U.S. and other developed countries, he added.

He noted that the massive interest rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve since last year have significantly increased global financing costs and exacerbated disorderly international capital flows. "This has not only led to the bankruptcy or takeover of some banks in the U.S. and Europe, but also made things more difficult for emerging markets and developing countries, which is not conducive to the stability and recovery of the world economy and common development of the world," he said.

Research shows that commercial creditors from developed countries hold almost half of the debt of debt-ridden countries in the world, said the spokesperson, adding that since last year, the higher interest rates of developed countries including the U.S. have increased the debt burden of the countries concerned, plunging them into a vicious cycle of debt repayment and exposing them to debt default.

He urged the U.S. and other developed countries to prudently assess the spillover effects of their economic and financial policies, stabilize market expectations in a timely manner, and avoid creating adverse shocks to global financial stability. 

He also called on developed countries to listen to the developing countries about what they actually think and urgently need, provide tangible help to countries in difficulty, stop paying lip service and shifting blame, and step up to their responsibility for maintaining global financial stability and promoting global economic recovery.
