|Wang Yi: Fulfill Responsibilities for Upholding Global Peace and Justice|
On September 27, 2019 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the General Debate of the 74th Session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly at the UN headquarters in New York.
In his speech, Wang Yi said, the world today is not a peaceful place. Unilateralism and protectionism are posing major threats to the international order. At a time when the future of the world is at stake, China has never been and will never be an onlooker. As a founding member of the UN, we will work with other countries to build a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind. We will be resolute in upholding the stature and role of the UN, the international system underpinned by the UN, and the international order anchored upon international law.
Permanent members of the Security Council need to lead by example, as major countries shoulder special responsibilities for maintaining a stable international order. China supports the new round of efforts by Secretary-General Guterres to reform the UN system and make it more efficient and equitable. China has set up an 8,000-strong peacekeeping standby force and permanent peacekeeping police squads. They have met standards for operation and are ready for action. China stands ready to work with other parties to fulfill our due responsibilities as a major country for upholding global peace and justice.
