Roundup: Xi speaks for developing countries in UN, offers new outlook on development, int'l relations(2)

Xinhua, September 29, 2015 Adjust font size:


During the some-20-minute speech at Monday's general debate, Xi elaborated on how to better promote world peace and development in the 21st century as these goals of peace, development, equity, justice, democracy and freedom "are far from being achieved."

"We should renew our commitment to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation, and create a community of shared future for mankind," Xi told the audience.

President Xi made a five-point proposal on how to achieve the goal of forging the new type of international relations.

First, Xi suggested that the international community build partnership in which countries treat each other as equals, engage in mutual consultations and show mutual understanding.

"We should forge a global partnership at both international and regional levels, and embrace a new approach to state-to-state relations, one that features dialogue rather than confrontation, and seeks partnership rather than alliance," Xi noted.

Secondly, Xi warned of Cold War mentality and hoped for a security architecture featuring fairness, justice, joint contribution and shared benefits.

"We should foster a new vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security, give full play to the central role of the UN and its security council in ending conflict and keeping peace," said Xi.

Thirdly, Xi insisted an open, innovative and inclusive development that benefits all.

Fourthly, Xi looked to increasing inter-civilization exchanges to promote harmony, inclusiveness and respect for difference.

"Different civilizations should have dialogue and exchanges instead of trying to exclude or replace each other, we should respect all civilizations and treat each other as equals," he said.

Fifthly, Xi proposed building an ecosystem that puts mother nature and green development first, expecting all members of the international community to work together to build a sound global eco-environment.

"China will shoulder its share of responsibility and continue to play its part in this common endeavor," said Xi.

"We also urged developed countries to fulfill their historical responsibility, honor their emission reduction commitments and help developing countries mitigate and adapt to climate change," the president added. Endi
