BEIJING -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will attend the annual general debate of the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 19, said a Foreign Ministry spokesman on Monday.

The 72nd Regular Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 72) will convene at UN Headquarters in New York on Tuesday. The General Debate will open on Sept. 19, with the theme of "Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet."

During the General Debate, Wang will elaborate on China's position and propositions on the international situation as well as major international and regional issues, spokesman Geng Shuang said at the daily press briefing.

Wang will express China's resolute determination to work with UN member states to safeguard world peace and stability and promote development and prosperity, said Geng.

As a founding member of the UN and permanent member of the UN Security Council, China upholds multilateralism and stands firmly for the international order with the UN at the core, he said.

China supports the UN to play a leading role in safeguarding international and regional peace, boosting global development and improving global governance, said Geng.

China will continue to actively participate in the UN's work on politics, security, development, human rights and disarmament, promote democracy and rule of law in international relations, and work with UN member states to build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation and build a community of shared future for mankind, he said.

Before attending the general debate, Wang will pay official visits to Costa Rica and Panama from Sept. 14 to 17, according to Geng.
