Mr. President,
Dear Colleagues,

Seventy years ago, the earlier generation of mankind fought
heroically and secured the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War, closing
a dark page in the annals of human history. That victory was hard won.

Seventy years ago, the earlier generation of mankind, with vision
and foresight, established the United Nations. This universal and most
representative and authoritative international organization has can°ied’ÿmankind’s
hope for a new future and ushered in a new era of cooperation.

It was a pioneering initiative never undertaken before.

Seventy years ago, the earlier generation o£ mankind pooled together
their wisdom and adopted the Charter of the United Nations, laying the
cornerstone of the contemporary international order, and establishing the
fundamental principles of contemporary international relations. This wag
an achievement of profund impact.

Mr. President,
Dear Colleagues,

On the third of September, the Chinese people, together with the
world’s people, solemnly commemorated the 70th anniversary of the
victory of the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese
Aggression and the World Anti-Fascist War. As the main theater in the
East, China made a national sacrifice of over 35 million casualties in its
fight against the majority troops of Japanese militarism, h not only saved
itself and its people from subjugation, but also gave strong support to the
forces against aggression in the European and Pacific theaters, thus
making a historic contribution to the victory of the World Anti-Fascist

History is a mirror. Only by drawing lessons from history can the
world avoid repeating past calamity. We should view history with awe
and human conscience. The past cannot be changed, but the future can be
shaped. Bearing history in mind is not to perpetuate hatred. Rather, it is
for mankind not to forget its lessor/. Remembering history does not mean
being obsessed with the past. Rather, in doing so, we aim to create a
better furore and pass the torch of peace from generation to generation.

Mr. President,
Dear Colleagues,

The United Nations has gone through the test of time over the past
seven decades. It has witnessed efforts made by all countries to uphold
peace, build homeland and pursue cooperation. Having reached a new
historical starting point, the United Nations needs to address the central
issue of how to better promote world peace and development in the 21st

The world is going trough a historical process of accelerated
evolution: The-surÿshineÿ of peace; development and progress will be
.powerful enough to penetrate the clouds Of war, poverty and
backwardness. The movement toward a multi-polar world, and the rise of
emerging markets and developing countries have become an irresistible
trend of history. Economic globalization and the advent of an information
age have vastly unleashed and boosted sociai productive forces. They
have both created unprecedented development opportunities and given
rise to new threats and: challenges which we must face squarely.

As an ancient Chinese adage goes, "The greatest ideal is to create a
world truly shared by all." Peace, development, equity, justice,
democracy and freedom are.common values of all mankind and the lofty
goals of the United Nations. Yet these goals are far from being achieved,
and we must continue our endeavor to meet them. In today’s world, all
countries are interdependent and share a common future. We Should
renew our commitment to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter,
build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation,
.and create a community of shared future for mankind. To achieve this
goal, we need to make the following efforts:

We should build partnerships in which countries treat each
other as equals, engage in mutual consultation and show mutual
understanding. The principle of sovereign equality underpins the UN
Charter. The future of the world must be shaped by all countries. All
countries are equals. The big, strong and rich should not bully the small,
weak and poor, The principle of sovereignty not only means that the
sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries are inviolable and
their internal affairs are not subjected to interference. It also means that
all countries’ right to independently choose social systems and
development paths should be upheld, and that all countries’ endeavors to
promote economic and social development and improve their people’s
lives should be respected:

We should be committed to multilateralism and reject unilateralism.

We should adopt a new vision of seeking win-win outcomes for all, and
reject the outdated mindset that one’s gain means the other’s loss or that
the winner shall take all. Consultation is an important form of democracy,
and it should also become an important means of exercising
contemporary international governance. We should resolve disputes and
differences through dialogue and consultation. We should forge a global
partnership at both international and regional levels, and embrace a new
approach to state-to-state relations, one that features dialogue rather than
confrontation, and seeks partnership rather than alliance. Major countries
should, follow the principles of no-conflict, no confrontation, mutual
respect and win-win cooperation in handling their relations. Big countries
should treat small countries as equals, and take a right approach to justice
and interests by putting justice before interests.

We should create a security architecture featuring fairness,
justice, joint contribution and shared benefits. In the age of economic
globalization, the security of all countries is interlinked and has impact on
one another. No country can maintain absolute security with its own
effort, and no country can achieve stability out of other countries’
instability. The law of the jungle leaves the weak atthe mercy of the
strong; it is not the way for countries to conduct their relations. Those
who adopli the high-handed approach of using force will fred that they are
only lifting a rock to drop on their own feet.

We should abandon Cold War mentality in all its manifestation, and
foster a new vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and
sustainable security. We should give full play to the central role of the
United Nations and its Security Council in ending conflict and keeping
peace, and adopt the dual approach of seeking peaceful solution to
disputes and taking mandatory actions, so as to mm hostility into amity.

We should advance international cooperation in both economic and social
elds and take a holistic approach-to addressing traditional and
non-traditional security threats, so as to prevent conflicts from breaking
out in the first place.

We should promote open, innovative and inclusive
development that benefits all. The 2008 internationa! financial crisis has
taught us that allowing capital to blindly pursue profit can only create a
crisis and that global prosperity cannot be built on the shaky foundation
of a market without moral constraints. The growing gap between rich and
poor is both unsustainable and unfair. It is important for us to use both the
invisible hand and the visible hand to form synergy between market
forces and government function and strive to achieve both efficiency and

Development is meaningful only when it is inclusive and sustainable.

To achieve such development requires openness, mutual assistance and
win-win cooperation. In the world today, close to 800 miiliori people still
live in extreme poverty, nearly six million kids die before the age of five
each year and nearly 60 million children are unable to go to school. The
just concluded UN Sustainable Development Summit adopted the
Post-2015 Development Agenda. We must translate our commitments
into actidns and vc0rk together to ensure that eveiÿyone is free from want,
has access to development and lives witli dignity.

We should, increase inter-civilization exchanges to promote
harmony, inclusiveness and respect for’differences. The world is
simply more colorful as a result of its cultural diversity. Diversity breeds
exchanges, exchanges create integration, and integration makes progress

In their interactions, civilizations must accept their differences. Only
through mutual respect, mutual learning and harmonious coexistence can
the world maintain its diversity and thrive. Each civilization represents
the unique vision and contribution of its people, and no civilization is
superior to others. Different civilizations should have dialogue and
exchanges instead of trying to exclude or replace each other. The history
of mankind is a process of active exchanges, interactions and integration
among different civilizations. We should respect all civilizations and treat
each other as equals. We should draw inspirations from each other to
boost the creative development of human civilization.

We should build an ecosystem that puts mother nature and
green development first. Mankind may utilize nature and even try to
transform it..But we are after all a part of nature. We should care for
nature and not place ourselves above it. We should reconcile industrial
development with nature and pursue harmony between man and nature to
achieve sustainable-development of the world and the all-round
development of man.

To build a sound ecology is vital for mankind’s future. Al! members
of the international community should work together to build a sound
global eco-environment. We should respect nature, follow nature’s ways
and protect nature. We should firmly pursue green, low-carbon, circular
and ,sustainable development. China will shoulder its share of
responsibility and continue to play its part in this common endeavor. We
also urge developed countries to fulfill their historical responsibility,
honor their emission reduction commitments and help developing
countries mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Mr. President,
Dear Colleagues,

The over 1.3 billion and more Chinese people are endeavoring to
realize the Chinese cireamlof great national renewal. The dream of the
Chinese people is closely connected with the dreams of other peoples of
the world. We. cannot realize the Chinese dream without a peaceful
international environment, a stable international order and the
understanding, support and help from the rest of the world. The
realization of the Chinese dream will bring more opportunities to other
countries and contribute to global peace and development.
China will continue to participate in building world peace. We are
committed to peaceful development. No matter how the international
landscape may evolve and how strong it may become, China will never
pursue hegemony, expansion or sphere of influence.

China will continue to contribute to global development. We will
continue to pursue common development and the win-win strategy of
opening-up. We are ready to share our development experience and
opportunities with other countries and welcome them to board China’s
express train of development so that all of us will achieve common

China will continue to uphold the international order. We will stay
committed to the path of development through cooperation. China was
the first country to put its signature on the UN Charter. We will continue
to uphold the international order and system underpinned by the purposes
and principles of the UN Charten China will continue to stand together
with other developing .countries. We firmly support greater representation
and say of developing countries, especially African countries, in the
international governance system. China’s vote in the United Nations will
always belong to the developing countries.

I wish to take this opportunity to announce China’s decision to
establish a 10-year, US$1 billion China-UN peace and development fund
to support the UN’s work, advance multilateral cooperation and
contribute more to world peace and development. I wish to announce that
China will join the new UN Peacekeeping Capability Readiness System
and has thus decided to take the lead in setting up a permanent
peacekeepÿng police squad and build a peacekeeping standby force of
8,000 troops. I also wish to announce that China will provide a total of
US$100 million of free military assistance to the African Union in the
next five years to support the establishment of the African Standby Force
and the African Capacity for Immediate Response to Crisis.

Mr. President,
Dear Colleagues,

As the United Nations enters a new decade, let us unite ever more
closely to forge a new partnership of win-win cooperation and a
community of shared future for mankind. Let the vision of a world free of
war and with lasting peace take root in our hearts. Let the aspiration of
development, prosperity, fairness and justice spread across the world!

Thank you.
