Wang Yi: China Firmly Maintains International Order
2016/07/07

On July 7, 2016, Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations (UN) met the press at Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.

Wang Yi said that just now I exchanged in-depth views with Mr. Ban Ki-moon on current international and regional hotspot issues as well as cooperation between China and the UN and reached broad consensus.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of China's return to the UN. Over the past 45 years, China has always firmly supported UN causes, actively promoted multi-lateralism, and unswervingly maintained the international order with the UN at its core. Among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, China is the country that sends the most peacekeepers. Among developing countries, China is the country that contributes the most UN membership dues. Among UN member states, China is the country that first realizes the millennium development goals and lifted the most population out of poverty. There are many more examples of this kind of "most".

Last year, President Xi Jinping attended the series of summits marking the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the UN, where he put forward significant propositions such as forging a community of shared destiny for mankind and building the new model of international relations with win-win cooperation at the core as well as announced a series of China's major and innovative measures to support the UN. Currently, the follow-up implementation work has achieved significant progress. The first batch of China-UN Peace and Development Fund has been appropriated. The standing peacekeeping force is about to start training and the program of 8,000-strong standby peacekeeping force is now under improvement. The six "One Hundred" South-South Cooperation projects are in comprehensive advancement. We will continue to demonstrate with practical actions that China suits its actions to its words.
