(Focus Interview): This year marks the 75th anniversary of the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War and the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations.
The theme of this year's UN General Assembly is "The future we want, the United Nations we need".
The United Nations was established after the war to maintain world peace and strengthen international cooperation.
What role will the United Nations play when the world is facing major changes unseen in a century?
How does it work?
What should each member do?
In the past few days, a series of high-level meetings of the United Nations have been held. President Xi Jinping was invited to attend by video and delivered an important speech, expounding China's propositions and plans.
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, Chinese President Xi Jinping expounded China’s propositions on the international order and the future and destiny of mankind in the multilateral diplomatic arena of the United Nations through video, and pointed out the direction for the international community to respond to global challenges and promote common development. Inject confidence and motivation for all countries in the world to join hands to build a community with a shared future for mankind and create a better future.
Xi Jinping said: "The world today is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. The sudden new crown pneumonia epidemic is a severe test for the world. Faced with the new situation and challenges, we must seriously think: What kind of United Nations does the world need? How should the United Nations play a role in the epidemic era?"
In his speech, Xi Jinping pointed out: The United Nations has gone through 75 years of extraordinary journey through trials and hardships.
After being tested again and again, the United Nations is still full of vitality, with the hope of more than 7 billion people for a better life. The UN Charter is still an important guarantee for world peace and development.
Today, mankind has entered a new era of interconnection.
Global threats and challenges require a strong global response.
How to face the new situation and new challenges, Xi Jinping put forward four suggestions in his speech: uphold justice, enforce the rule of law, promote cooperation, and focus on action.
How to be fair?
Xi Jinping pointed out: Mutual respect and equality between large and small countries is the requirement of the progress of the times and the primary principle of the UN Charter.
No country has the power to take over international affairs, dominate the destiny of other countries, and monopolize development advantages, let alone do its own way in the world, engage in hegemony, bullying, and domineering.
How does the United Nations enforce the rule of law?
Xi Jinping pointed out: The purposes and principles of the UN Charter are fundamental to the handling of international relations, and are also an important cornerstone of the stability of the international order, which must be upheld without wavering.
The relations and interests of various countries can only be coordinated with systems and rules. You cannot listen to whoever has the strongest fist.
Regarding how the UN promotes cooperation, Xi Jinping proposed: replace conflict with dialogue, replace coercion with negotiation, replace zero-sum with win-win, combine national interests with the common interests of all countries, strive to expand the convergence of common interests of all countries, and build a harmonious and cooperative international family.
Focusing on action: Xi Jinping proposed that in practicing multilateralism, one should not sit back and talk about the truth, but start to do it. You can't just prescribe prescriptions without seeing the effect.
These suggestions of Xi Jinping have been positively evaluated by the international community.
Xi Jinping pointed out: There are so many and big problems in the world, global challenges are rising day by day, and they should and can only be solved through dialogue and cooperation.
Everyone discusses international affairs, and helping each other in the same boat has become a broad consensus in the international community.
Xi Jinping said: "China will always be a practitioner of multilateralism, actively participate in the reform and construction of the global governance system, firmly uphold the international system with the United Nations at its core, firmly uphold the international order based on international law, and firmly uphold the United Nations in international affairs. Core role in
Today, mankind is fighting the new crown pneumonia epidemic.
The virus ravages the world, and the epidemic keeps repeating.
In the United Nations General Assembly held in this situation, how to fight the epidemic has also become a subject of much concern.
"People of all countries are watching and helping each other, showing the courage, determination, and care of mankind in the face of major disasters, and illuminating the darkest moment." Xi Jinping profoundly summarized the importance of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in the general debate of the 75th United Nations General Assembly. The enlightenment further answers the question of the times of "what's wrong with the world and what shall we do?"
Xi Jinping said: “The global pandemic of the new crown pneumonia epidemic and major changes in the world that have not been seen in a century affect each other, but the theme of the era of peace and development has not changed, and the people of all countries have stronger expectations of peaceful development, cooperation and win-win.”
In the face of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, we must practice the concept of people first and life first.
We must strengthen unity and help each other in the same boat.
It is necessary to formulate comprehensive and normalized prevention and control measures, and to care for and take care of developing countries, especially African countries.
Xi Jinping's four-point initiative, based on China's successful experience in fighting the new crown pneumonia epidemic, proposes solutions to the outstanding problems facing the global epidemic, and injects strong positive energy into maintaining global public health security.
The sudden new crown pneumonia epidemic warned the world in a special form that mankind is a community of shared destiny, allowing the world to deeply appreciate the ideological power and value of the times of the concept of a community of shared future for mankind.
However, the new crown pneumonia epidemic will not be the last crisis facing mankind. We must be prepared to join hands to meet more global challenges.
As the world's largest developing country, China has always assumed the responsibilities of a great power in enhancing the well-being of mankind, unswervingly being a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development, and a defender of international order, showing what a great country should be.
Xi Jinping said: "We do not pursue excellence, do not engage you in losing or losing, nor will we close the door to operate in a closed manner. We will gradually form a new development pattern with domestic and international cycles as the mainstay and mutual promotion of domestic and international cycles. Development opens up space and adds impetus to the recovery and growth of the world economy."
Standing at a new historical starting point for the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, Xi Jinping’s important speech grasped the general trend of the times and demonstrated Chinese wisdom.
The Chinese plan will promote the building of a new type of international relations, promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind, and promote the creation of a better future for the world!
The 75 years of the United Nations are 75 years of rapid development of human society, 75 years of profound changes in the international situation, and 75 years of rapid development of multilateralism.
The world is now standing at a new crossroads, especially this new crown pneumonia epidemic, which has made everyone deeply aware that the earth is a connected and shared global village.
According to a UN poll, about 90% of the respondents believe that international cooperation is essential to cope with global challenges such as the epidemic, and 70% of the respondents said that the role of the United Nations is crucial.
To be united and not divided, to cooperate and not to confront, to win-win and not to be zero-sum, is what the people want, and it is the trend.
Since we are in the same boat, we need to go hand in hand.
