UNITED NATIONS - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterated here Friday that China will firmly fulfill its due international responsibilities and obligations.

"The Chinese nation is responsible and ready to play its part," Wang told the UN General Assembly (UNGA) during its annual general debate, which entered its fourth day here Friday.

As a developing country facing a daunting task of development, he said, China is fully aware of its responsibilities and expectations placed on it by the international community as the second biggest economy and a permanent member of the UN Security Council.  

According to Wang, China will fully and more actively involve itself in international affairs and work closely with other countries to meet intricate global challenges and tackle difficult issues facing mankind.

"We will voice China's views, offer China's vision, propose China's solutions, play China's due role and provide more public goods to the international community," Wang said.

China will vigorously advocate the right vision of striking a balance between upholding justice and pursuing interests, and endeavor to build a community of common destiny with other developing countries, said the foreign minister.

"In our exchanges and cooperation with other developing countries, we will uphold justice and place it above interests, and give sincere assistance to other developing countries to the best of our ability so as to enable developing countries to realize independent and sustainable development," Wang said.

The foreign minister underlined that China will play a more proactive and constructive role in addressing international and regional hotspot issues to promote peace and dialogue, defuse conflicts and uphold world peace and stability.

"We will continue escort missions and counter-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden, and increase participation in the UN peacekeeping operations so as to contribute more to peace and security in Africa and other relevant regions," he added.
