He believes that these principles are of universal value, and that the whole world should abide by them. He said that the German people need these principles, especially when facing the pandemic. 

His wife, who is from Russia, understands the evilness of the communist party. She said that the Russians were lucky to have the great change [away from communism], and she wished the Chinese the same opportunity.
