A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Wednesday that China stands ready to join the international community to actively promote the reform of global governance system.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang made the remarks regarding reports that the 71st session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly recently adopted a resolution which incorporates the principle of "extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits" put forward by China.
He said that this principle emphasizes that all relevant parties should consult, work and benefit together, embodying the vision of equality, cooperation and win-win outcomes. Against the backdrop of the intertwining of the interests of all countries and the rising of all sorts of global challenges, the principle is of important practical significance.
Geng said that previously, the resolutions adopted by relevant organs of the UN also contained content such as the building of the Belt and Road Initiative and the community of shared future for mankind that were proposed by China. This demonstrates that Chinese voices, proposals and wisdom are gaining understanding, support and response from an increasing number of countries and are becoming the consensus of the international community.
China stands ready to follow the above-mentioned principles and visions to actively promote the reform of global governance system so as to make it better mirror the changes of the international landscape and better serve all countries around the world, he said.
On September 11, the 71st session of the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution titled "The United Nations in global economic governance" under the theme of "Central role of the United Nations system in global governance." The resolution requires all parties to improve global economic governance and strengthen the role of the UN in the principle of "extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits."
