President Xi Jinping reiterated on Monday China's commitment to peaceful development, saying that the nation will create more opportunities for the world with its own development and work with other countries to jointly deal with global challenges.

Xi made the remarks while meeting with 70 new foreign ambassadors to China after he received credentials presented by them at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. He also met with Zhang Ming, secretary-general of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

He welcomed the ambassadors and asked them to convey his good wishes to the leaders of their countries or organizations. He said that China is ready to deepen friendship and expand win-win cooperation with people from all countries based on equality and mutual benefit, and advance the steady development of bilateral ties.

Xi expressed his hope that the ambassadors will have a full and in-depth understanding of China and act as messengers of friendship and bridges of cooperation.

He talked about China's momentous journey combating the COVID-19 pandemic over the past three years, saying that the nation always puts people first and people's lives foremost.

During the process, China obtained sincere assistance from many countries and their peoples. It also took real action to fully support the global pandemic response and work with various countries to practice the concept of a global community of health for all, Xi said.
