BEIJING — China on Sept 21 called for a new mode of international relations with win-win cooperation as the essence.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a paper on the 70th anniversary of the United Nations with President Xi Jinping due to attend UN meetings in New York later this week.
The paper says that it is important to build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation and a community of common destiny. It also calls for greater democracy and the rule of law in international relations.
The paper emphasizes that the 70th anniversary of the UN is an important opportunity for the international community to review history, uphold the outcome of the world anti-fascist war and look ahead to the future so as to turn the vision of the UN Charter into reality at an early date. China calls on UN members to uphold the Charter, advocate common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security and advance global development cooperation.
The paper says that the United Nations is an outcome of victory against fascism and embodies the hope for peace and development. The United Nations has been the most representative and authoritative intergovernmental organization ever and accomplished a great deal over the past seven decades, the paper says.
“Seventy years on, the UN Charter remains as relevant as ever,” the paper says.
It calls for the international community to renew the spirit of the Charter and enrich, reinvigorate it in light of the times and the needs of the world.
The paper offers a comprehensive summary of China’s view on the major issues at the 70th anniversary of the United Nations. It explains China’s stance on the role of the Security Council, peace-keeping operations, public health, security, children, education, the disabled, climate change, terrorism, cyber security, human rights and the efficiency and effectiveness of the UN.
President Xi will attend a number of meetings marking the 70th anniversary of the United Nations from Sept 26 to 28. He will attend the UN general debate, a development summit, a global summit on women and round table on South-South cooperation. This is the first time President Xi has attended UN meetings.
