More countries opt for increasing dialogue, cooperation: Chinese FM
More and more countries have opted for increasing dialogue and cooperation, preserving world peace and seeking common development as their own interests, a top Chinese diplomat said at the United Nations on Sunday.
Tang Jiaxuan, the Chinese foreign minister who spoke at the general debate of the General Assembly, said: "The international developments over the past year demonstrate that more and more countries have opted for increasing dialogue and cooperation, preserving world peace and seeking common development as they see in these their own interests."
"Such a trend has not only brought rare opportunities of development for many countries, but also created favorable conditions for our joint endeavor to build a better world," he said.
"One year ago, the United Nations convened the historic Millennium Summit in New York, where leaders of more than 100 countries discussed important matters of the world and looked to the future of humanity," Tang said.
"The UN Millennium Declaration issued by the Summit identifies the objectives for promoting world peace and development in the new century and serves as a guide to action for the international community to create a better world," he said.
However, Tang warned that the cause of human progress is still faced with daunting challenges, and the international community remains far from fulfilling all the objectives set out by the Millennium Summit.
Tang made the speech at the UN headquarters in New York on the second day of the annual high-level debate of the UN General Assembly, which opened here Saturday.
