Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterated that his country is ready to work with all parties to support and promote multilateralism and push the United Nations to embark on a new journey towards building a common community for mankind.
Wang made the remarks during a video address at an international symposium marking the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, according to Xinhua.
“In the 75 years since the founding of the United Nations, the vast majority of countries have agreed to resolve differences through dialogue and negotiations and settle disputes through mediation,” Wang said, calling on the international community to strongly defend pluralism and protect the right direction of human development and progress.
He also made five proposals on this, including supporting the essential role of the United Nations, adhering to the goals and principles of the United Nations Charter, seeking to achieve peaceful development, adhering to win-win cooperation and building a common community for mankind.
With regard to the emerging corona virus, Wang explained that this virus will change the world, but the issue of peace and development will not change, and the trend of win-win cooperation will not be reversed, and historical progress cannot be stopped.
It is noteworthy that the symposium was jointly organized by the Chinese Association of the United Nations and the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs on the topic of promoting multilateralism for a better future.
