|Li Keqiang Meets with Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) António Guterres|
On November 3, 2019 local time, Premier Li Keqiang met with Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) António Guterres in Bangkok.
Li Keqiang expressed, China, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, will continue to resolutely safeguard multilateralism, uphold the international system with the UN at its core, and maintain the international order based on international law in the context of complex international situations. The Chinese side is ready to deepen cooperation with the UN, support Mr. Secretary-General's work, and work with all parties to well implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In dealing with climate change, China will undertake its due responsibilities and obligations as a developing country, follow the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, and implement the Paris Agreement with the international community in a comprehensive and efficient manner, so as to promote green, low-carbon, and sustainable development.
António Guterres said, the international community must avoid any situation that separates the world and creates two systems and sets of rules amid the current complicated world situation. China's development is conducive to multi-polarization and the process of multilateralism in the world, and to safeguarding world peace. The UN highly commends the contributions China has made to supporting multilateralism, safeguarding the international order based on international law, implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and tackling climate change. The UN Secretariat supports the Belt and Road Initiative.
