Development is key to resolving poverty and conflict around the world, and China would like to boost South-South cooperation, enhance South-North dialogue and push forward international cooperation, the Premier said.

China would like to push forward the reaching of a comprehensive, balanced and powerful agreement during the Paris climate change summit based on the principle of common but different responsibilities, he added.

Lykketoft spoke highly of China’s efforts in maintaining world peace, promoting development and implementing the agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The UN would like to work with China and other countries to implement the consensus reached during the summit of the 70th anniversary of the founding of UN and push forward peace and development around the world, Lykketoft said.
