China Opposes Global Rollback Attempts, Calls For Cooperation
China, in a statement released at the end of the Central Conference on work related to China’s Foreign Affairs in Beijing, emphasized the need for “resolute” efforts against attempts to reverse globalization and advocated for an equal and orderly multipolar world.
The statement highlighted President Xi Jinping’s comprehensive review of major-country diplomacy achievements with Chinese characteristics in the new era, addressing the international environment and China’s historical mission in external work. The conference emphasized that over the past decade, China has overcome various challenges, gaining strategic autonomy and initiative in diplomacy.
China has evolved into a responsible major country with increased international influence, enhanced capacity for steering new initiatives, and greater moral appeal. The statement noted the accelerating global transformation, emphasizing that despite the world entering a new period of turbulence and transformation, the overall direction of human development and progress, the dynamics of world history, and the trend toward a shared future for the international community remain unchanged.
Looking ahead, China sees new strategic opportunities for development, and major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics is expected to enter a stage where significant accomplishments can be made. The focus will be on the central task of the CPC and the country, seeking progress while maintaining stability and safeguarding China’s sovereignty, security, and development interests.
China aims to explore new frontiers in diplomatic theory and practice, foster new dynamics in global relations, and elevate its international influence and power to shape events. The goal is to create a more favorable international environment and provide strategic support for building China into a great modern socialist country and advancing the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
In the face of major global issues and challenges, China advocates for an equal and orderly multipolar world and universally beneficial and inclusive economic globalization. An equal and orderly multipolar world rejects hegemonism, promotes democracy in international relations, and treats all countries equally, irrespective of size.
