BEIJING,Dec.1,2017-- Chinese President Xi Jinping said here on Thursday that Chinese diplomacy in the new era is to promote the construction of a new type of international relations and a community of shared future.
Xi made the remarks when meeting with foreign delegates to the 2017 Imperial Springs International Forum from Tuesday to Thursday.
Former world leaders, renowned scholars and business elites gathered in China's southern city of Guangzhou to exchange their views on global governance.
A new type of international relations mean countries need to uphold mutual respect, fairness and justice and win-win cooperation, abandon law of the jungle, promote dialogue and partnership instead of confrontation and alliances, Xi said.
A community of shared future will bring lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness and inclusiveness as well as a clean and beautiful world, he said.
"As a country of over 1.3 billion people, China contributes to the construction of a community of shared future by maintaining its own long-term stability and development," Xi said.
He said China will always follow the peaceful development path and will never seek hegemony like great powers did, adding that China's cooperation with other countries is never attached with strings to interfere with their domestic affairs.
China will take a more active posture in global governance, including facilitating the political settlement of international issues, participating in UN peacekeeping missions, implementing the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Xi said.
