Diplomacy pays dividends as countries benefit

China Daily,December 29, 2017 Adjust font size:

It was the first time that a UN resolution incorporated the important Chinese concept.

William Jones, Washington Bureau chief of US publication Executive Intelligence Review, told Xinhua News Agency that Xi's proposal is an "attempt by the Chinese president to overcome and replace the traditional notion of 'geopolitics', in which there are always 'winners' and 'losers', and in which the principle of 'might makes right' tends to predominate".

"In this new concept, everyone plays a role and the benefits achieved by any one nation can be shared by all," he was quoted as saying.

Xi has also played a constructive role in improving global governance. Beijing has been pushing for a bigger say for the developing world in key global bodies and dedicated to building a new type of international relations.

To maintain world peace, China has been a top contributor to UN peacekeeping missions and steadfastly championing peaceful settlement of hot-button issues worldwide.

Ruan Zongze, vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies, said that now as the world is facing more and more uncertainties and challenges, expectations are running high for China to make more contributions to world development.

"As the largest developing country, China's positive voices and actions are like sunshine for the global community because China's international policy could be a great assurance for the world to face uncertainties," he said.
