2016/12/12

On December 11, 2016 local time, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met at the Palace of Nations in Geneva of Switzerland with Director-General of the UN Office at Geneva (UNOG) Michael Møller.

Wang Yi said that Geneva is one of the most important centers of multilateral diplomacy in the world, and also the platform where the People's Republic of China made its global debut at the multilateral diplomatic stage for the first time. UN agencies in Geneva have played an important role in China's reform, opening up and development and China has made important contributions to the cause of world peace and development through those agencies. As a founding member of the UN and a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China is always an active advocator of multilateralism as well as a firm supporter in the UN cause. Under current complicated international situations, the role of the UN can be only strengthened instead of being weakened. The Chinese side attaches great importance to and is willing to further enhance cooperation with the UN, come up with more Chinese proposals and send out more Chinese voices on resolving current challenges and problems the world faces and beefing up global governance. It is believed that with the development of China, China will continuously increase investment in the UN cause and make greater contributions to world peace and development.

Michael Møller expressed that the world is now undergoing intensified conflicts, and only by adhering to multilateralism and strengthening international cooperation can we resolve all kinds of challenges and problems faced by the international community in peace, security and development. Appreciating China's firm support in multilateralism, the UN side values China's vital role and influences in international affairs, and hopes to further reinforce cooperation with China.
