Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday reassured the world that China will continue to be an anchor of stability, an engine of global growth, while championing peace and contributing to multilateral global governance.
At a press conference on the sidelines of the annual national legislature session, Wang offered China's solution to the world's hot issues, which include dealing with the Trump administration, de-escalating tensions in Northeast Asia, supporting European integration, and ensuring lasting stability in the South China Sea.
The foreign minister said Chinese diplomats have risen to challenges and broken new ground, under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee with Xi Jinping as the core.
He summed up Chinese diplomacy with three key words: vision, initiative and consistency.
