The series of meetings at the UN Headquarters from Sept 25 to 28 to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations will have a huge impact on international relations, the future role of the world body and the direction of global cooperation.

Over the years, the UN, established after the world's victory over fascism, has played the principal role in maintaining peace and development across the globe. And as the most representative and authoritative intergovernmental body, the UN has promoted human progress, with peace and security, development, and human rights being its three pillars.

Seventy years on, the UN Charter remains as relevant as ever. The meeting at the UN headquarters in New York offered the world community a golden opportunity to review the spirit of the charter and enrich it with new connotations that comply with the trends and needs of our times.
