Xi Jinping Meets with United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres
2020/09/23

On the evening of September 23, 2020, President Xi Jinping met with United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Beijing via videolink.

Xi Jinping stressed, the UN has made important contributions to world peace and development since its founding 75 years ago. The international community should take the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the UN as an opportunity to reaffirm its firm support for multilateralism and solemn commitment to the UN Charter. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China will firmly support the UN in playing a central role in international affairs and its work.

Xi Jinping pointed out, the COVID-19 pandemic is still spreading around the world and we should not slacken our efforts in the global fight against COVID-19. The Chinese side is willing to share experience and practices with all sides without reservation and continue to provide support and assistance for countries in need. The Chinese side firmly supports the key leadership of the UN system, especially the World Health Organization, in strengthening international cooperation and joint prevention and containment of the pandemic, to jointly build a global community of health for all. China will honor its commitment to make COVID-19 vaccines a global public good after putting them into use following the completion of vaccine development, and make contributions to ensuring vaccine accessibility and affordability in developing countries.

Xi Jinping pointed out, the pandemic has given rise to many new problems, but they all boil down to peace and development. The UN Security Council should act as the international collective security mechanism, and the permanent members of the UN Security Council should play an exemplary role. Pursuing unilateralism and hegemony will surely be rejected.

Xi Jinping stressed, efforts should be made to reduce the impact of the pandemic on economy and people's livelihood, mobilize global resources and forces, and urge all sides to take timely and robust measures to reduce and relieve debt and enhance assistance, therefore contributing to the development of developing countries and narrowing the gap between the rich and the poor.

Xi Jinping stressed, development must be sustainable, which requires the relationship between people and nature to be properly handled. China not only strengthens its own ecological civilization but also actively assumes international responsibility for climate change. China strives to take good care of the Earth, the common home of mankind, and actively works with other countries to jointly build a Silk Road of Green Development.

Xi Jinping pointed out, the pandemic has also magnified the problems of maladaptation and mismatch in the global governance system. All sides should consider how to improve it rather than trying to tearing it down and setting up another one. There is only one system in the world, that is, the UN-centered international system and there is only one set of rules, namely the basic norms of international relations based on the UN Charter. China never engages in ideological confrontation, advocates decoupling, or seeks hegemony. What we care about most is how to enable the 1.4 billion Chinese people to live a better life and make greater contributions to mankind. However, we will not sit idly by and allow China's sovereignty, national dignity and space for development to be undermined. We will resolutely safeguard our legitimate rights and interests and uphold international fairness and justice.

Xi Jinping stressed, all countries are interconnected and share a common destiny. All countries should rise above differences between countries, nationalities, cultures and ideologies, build a community with a shared future for mankind and jointly build our shared planet.

Antonio Guterres said, since the world now faces many crises and challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, we need multilateralism, international cooperation and a stronger UN more than ever before. I appreciate China's consistent and firm support for multilateralism and the UN. With China's support, the UN can better carry out its duties. China plays an important role in safeguarding world peace and promoting common development. I speak highly of a series of major initiatives and measures announced by President Xi Jinping at the UN General Assembly recently in practicing multilateralism, tackling climate change and promoting sustainable development. I support China in promoting the joint building of a Silk Road of Green Development and deepening cooperation with Africa and other developing countries. The UN hopes to continue to strengthen cooperation with China and expects China to play a leading role. I believe that China is fully capable of achieving its own development and making greater contributions to the world.

Yang Jiechi, Wang Yi and others were present.
