In 2020, mankind has just stepped into the threshold of the third decade of the 21st century, and a series of difficult challenges will come: the new crown epidemic is raging around the world, the world economy is shrinking and declining, the process of globalization is encountering adverse winds, and the haze of hegemonism and unilateralism bursts Whats wrong with the world? What should we do? in the face of the question of the times and fate, many people feel confused. Cooperation or isolation, unity or division, hand in hand or let go, human society is facing a major choice.
In New York in September, the epidemic was locked in. The series of high-level meetings on the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations were held in an unprecedented video format, attracting worldwide attention.
President Xi Jinping was invited to attend a series of meetings and delivered several important speeches. He reviewed the history and faced the reality. With plain words, deep thoughts and powerful calls, he pointed out the way forward and lit up the hope for the world in the dark time.

It has been 75 years since the post-war international system with the United Nations as the core. Looking back on the past, only by holding up the telescope of history can we profoundly grasp the evolution of the great changes in the world that have not taken place in a hundred years in the tortuous and profound historical space and time.

Since the 20th century, human beings have experienced two extremely tragic world wars and witnessed the great leap of social productivity after the war. The vast number of developing countries have embarked on the road of national liberation and national independence. However, the gap between the rich and the poor in the world is far from being filled and the imbalance of development is far from being solved. Economic globalization has brought about great connectivity and integration, while unilateralism and counter globalization are constantly trying to make the separation and obstruction come back again.
Today, under the superposition of the century change and the new epidemic situation, the world is not less foggy and chaotic, but more: retreat from the group, throw off the pot and decoupling are rampant, hegemony, bullying and tyranny are rampant. Cold war thinking, zero sum mentality and power politics have repeatedly impacted the international order and moral bottom line. Once again, the world has come to the critical crossroads. People are wandering and confused, looking back and reflecting, and looking forward to the ideological power of breaking through clouds and fog.
There are many and large world problems and global challenges are rising day by day, which should and can only be solved through dialogue and cooperation. At the 75th Anniversary Commemorative Summit of the United Nations in September 21st, President Xi Jinping once again called for international discussions.

This is the Chinese expression of multilateralism, which interprets the true meaning of democratization of international relations, and contains Chinas profound thinking on maintaining world peace and stability and promoting the reform of the international system.
In March 2013, when Xi Jinping became president of the country, he made his first visit. When attending the fifth meeting of the leaders of the BRICs countries in South Africa, he made a clear statement: one countrys affairs are determined by its own people, and international affairs are discussed by all countries.
The sentence is plain and profound. Since then, the phrase discuss to do has also appeared in many important multilateral occasions, such as the G20 leaders summit, the world Internet Conference, the China Arab Cooperation Forum, and the Sino French Global Governance Forum. Mutual respect and equality are not only the first principles of the UN Charter, but also the themes of chairman Xi Jinpings interpretation at the United Nations platform.
u2014u2014The future and destiny of the world must be shared by all countries. All countries in the world are equal. We must not oppress the small with the big, bully the weak with the strong, and bully the poor with the rich.
u2014u2014We should adhere to multilateralism, not unilateralism; we should pursue the new concept of win-win, multi win and win-win, and throw away the old thinking of I win, you lose, winner take all.
u2014u2014We should abandon all forms of cold war thinking and establish a new concept of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security.
Upholding justice and firm self-confidence, it has gone beyond the traditional theory of international relations and answered the major question of how countries should get along with each other in the 21st century, which is related to the lasting peace of mankind, and has aroused wide resonance all over the world.
In September 2015, President Xi Jinping proposed in the general debate of the seventieth United Nations General Assembly that we should inherit and carry forward the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and build a new international relationship centered on win-win cooperation.
Two years later, promoting the construction of a new type of international relations of mutual respect, fairness and justice, and win-win cooperation was written into the report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. The connotation was further enriched and the path was clearer.
China is not only an advocate but also a practitioner of the new road of dialogue without confrontation, partnership without alliance between countries. Since 2013, President Xi Jinping has made 41 visits to 69 countries in five continents. Since the outbreak of the new crown, President Xi Jinping has been on the phone with 73 foreign leaders and international leaders for 73 times, attending 9 major multilateral activities and leading China to participate in international anti epidemic cooperation in an all-round way. By the end of September, China had sent medical expert teams to 34 countries, provided more than 280 batches of anti epidemic assistance to more than 150 countries and international organizations, and held special video conferences with more than 180 countries, making significant contributions to the unity of the human family in war epidemic.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia China and the United Nations peace and development fund and South South cooperation assistance fund will be provided to support the WHO and the UN Global Humanitarian Response Plan for the new crown pneumonia. More than 4 peacekeepers from the total, and a new UN peacekeeping force standby mechanism will be sent to actively participate in the major areas such as the Korean Peninsula nuclear, the Iran nuclear and Afghanistan. As for hot issues, China has always adhered to the principle of multilateralism, firmly maintained the international system with the United Nations as the core, and practiced the global governance concept of consultation, joint construction and sharing, which has become a key force in promoting the cause of peace and progress of mankind.
The contribution of a country or a nation to the world and mankind lies not only in how much material it has created, but also in what ideas it has put forward. Former Greek President pavlopoulos said that in a world full of uncertainty, China advocates peace, harmony and balance, which provides very useful reference and solutions for solving various global problems.
Hold the golden key of development: development together is the real development
One principle runs through it all. the concept of global development is promoted by President Xi Jinping. How to make every country a participant, contributor and beneficiary of global development is an important topic which Chairman Xi Jinping has repeatedly talked about and explained many times.
At the 75th Anniversary Commemorative Summit of the United Nations, President Xi Jinping once again appealed to put the development issue in the prominent position of the global macro framework.
4 years ago, under the impetus of President Xi Jinping, the first summit of the group of twenty leaders in Hangzhou put the issue of development in the prominent position of the global macroeconomic policy framework. For the first time, a systematic action plan was formulated around the implementation of the 2030 sustainable development agenda.
In the face of economic globalization, it is against the law of history to bury ones head in the sand like an ostrich, to pretend to be blind, or to wave a spear like Don Quixote to resist. In the general debate of the seventy-fifth session of the United Nations General Assembly, chairman Xi Jinping warned against the trend of counter globalization in recent years.
At the annual session of the world economic forum 2017, President Xi Jinping pointed out in his speech that in the face of the opportunities and challenges brought by economic globalization, the right choice is to make full use of every opportunity to cooperate to deal with all challenges and guide the trend of economic globalization.
Mezluk, a senior researcher at Kiev State Language University of Ukraine, said that the general trend of economic globalization is irreversible, but we should also see the problems and challenges facing the process of globalization. In the process of promoting the development of globalization in the right direction, Chinas strength is particularly crucial.
President Xi Jinping announced to the world through video that China does not seek to outshine others, and will not lose or win. It will not close its doors to operate in a closed way. It will gradually form a new development pattern with the domestic big cycle as the main body and the domestic and international double circulation as the mutual promotion.
China holds that words must be followed. Chinas plan, win win hand in hand. In China, China one belt, one road and one other area, has grown into the largest international cooperation platform in the world. The two China International Import Fair attracted thousands of countries to participate in the international trade and economic cooperation. Chinas first Asian infrastructure investment bank, which has been developing the dream of economic development in the developing countries, has provided 24 members with the total amount of seven. In the new era, China Africa mutually beneficial cooperation has entered a new stage.
President Xi Jinping said that we should combine our national interests with the common interests of all countries and strive to expand the confluence of common interests of all countries and build a harmonious and cooperative international family. Thats what China says and does.
Poverty alleviation, poverty alleviation and inclusive development are major events in the world as well as in the minds of Chinese leaders. Over the past 40 years, I have worked in Chinas counties, cities, provinces and the central government. Poverty alleviation has always been an important part of my work, and I have spent the most energy. President Xi Jinping once said so.
Work together for a long time. In 2020, China will achieve the goal of poverty alleviation of the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development 10 years ahead of schedule. The problem of absolute poverty in China will be solved historically!
Womens cause is an important yardstick to measure world development in a more equal, inclusive and sustainable way. China has always been an active advocate and strong promoter of the global womens cause. Five years ago, it was at Chinas initiative that the global womens summit was held at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

History goes back to March 2013, the auditorium of the Moscow Institute of international relations. It was there that President Xi Jinping first proposed to the international community that the world is becoming more and more a shared destiny between you and me.
Over the past 7 years, the ideological system of building the community of human destiny has been continuously improved and the theoretical connotation has been continuously enriched. It has become the core content of Xi Jinpings diplomatic thoughts and the bright banner of Chinas leading the direction of human civilization and progress in the new era.
In the autumn of 2015, President Xi Jinping first boarded the podium of the United Nations Headquarters in New York to make clear the general layout and general path for the world to create the five in one community for human destiny. After the speech, the applause prolonged and the leaders of many countries came forward to shake hands with President Xi Jinping.
At the beginning of 2017, President Xi Jinping delivered a keynote speech at the Palace of Nations of Geneva, further elaborated the concept of the community of human destiny, and put forward the construction of a lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, tolerance, clean and beautiful world. A 47 minute speech, there were more than 30 rounds of applause, and when it came to the key points, it was almost a word for word applause.
Now, facing the challenges of post epidemic era, the leaders of China gathered firmly in the face of the challenges posed by the cloud gathering, and the Chinese answers given by President Xi Jinping are firm and specific.
The website of American foreign scholars commented that Chinese leaders outlined Chinas vision for the world on the UN stage, showing Chinas image of a responsible role in the United Nations and the world order.
Be responsible for the future, more responsible for mankind. Promoting green development and building ecological civilization is the meaning of building a community of shared future for mankind. In the general debate of the seventy-fifth UN General Assembly, President Xi Jinping solemnly declared that Chinas carbon dioxide emissions will strive to peak before 2030, and strive to achieve carbon neutralization by 2060. The heavy news quickly spread around the world through the Internet.
Henry Paulson, former U.S. Treasury Secretary, commented for the first time: This is an important step in Chinas response to climate change and will have a transformative impact on Global Climate Governance.

Harmony and coexistence, harmony but not sameness, is a view of civilization deeply rooted in the history of the Chinese nation. Recalling President Xi Jinpings diplomatic activities on the international stage, civilization exchanges and mutual learning always occupy a special weight.
At UNESCO headquarters in Paris, he narrated the historical memory of the exchange and dialogue between Chinese civilization and other civilizations; in New York, he presented the peace Zun made of Chinese Intangible Cultural Heritage Cloisonne to the United Nations; in Greece, he visited the Acropolis Museum in Athens with Greek leaders and went to the contract of civilization; in Egypt, he walked in the Ancient Luxor Temple to recall Sino Egyptian cultural exchanges
President Xi Jinping has repeatedly said that civilization is neither superior nor inferior, with only distinction between characteristics and regions. The differences between civilizations should not be the source of world conflicts, but should be the driving force for the progress of human civilization.

The beauty of each beauty, the beauty of beauty, and the United States. China is striving to change civilization differences into civilization harmony and civilization conflict into civilization coexistence.
The world is standing at a new historical starting point. Let us renew our firm commitment to multilateralism, promote the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind, and achieve greater unity and progress under the flag of the United Nations!
The UN conference in an extraordinary period is destined to engrave a distinctive mark of China in history. The ideological light of peaceful development and win-win cooperation will certainly penetrate the haze of war, disaster, poverty and backwardness, and guide mankind towards a more brilliant future.
