|Wang Yi Delivers a Speech at the Video Conference Themed "China's Role in the United Nations"|
On September 27, 2021, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi delivered a speech at the video conference themed "China's Role in the United Nations".
Wang Yi said that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the People's Republic of China's restoration of its lawful seat in the United Nations (UN). In the past 50 years, China has put into practice the purposes and principles of the UN Charter with concrete actions, and firmly safeguarded the legitimate rights and interests of developing countries. China has become a significant builder of world peace, the largest contributor to global development, a staunch defender of international order, and an active provider of public goods.
Wang Yi stresses that, at the General Debate of the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly, President Xi Jinping put forward the Global Development Initiative, which has provided guidelines for actions and injected theoretical impetus on focusing on development and seeking solidarity for shared development of all countries. The world is at a new historical crossroads right now. Now more than ever, the international community needs to bolster confidence and jointly address challenges, build peace and tranquility, and realize common development. China will adhere to the guidance of the new vision for development, uphold the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution, and shared benefits, and pursue more robust, greener and more balanced global development. China will continue to bridge divides through dialogue and settle disputes by negotiation, uphold international fairness and justice, and promote the building of new international relations. China will continue to practice multilateralism, safeguard the international system with the United Nations at its core and the international order based on international law, promote democracy in international relations, and facilitate the reform and building of the global governance system. China will work with all countries to build a community with a shared future for mankind with practical actions. We hope more people of insight will contribute their wisdom and strength to this cause.
The video conference themed "China's Role in the United Nations" was co-hosted by the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs and the Nizami Ganjani International Center of Azerbaijan for the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of China's restoration of its lawful seat in the UN.
