Wang Yi: "Four Adherences" and "Three Oppositions" Are Needed for Genuine Multilateralism
2021/01/13

On January 13, 2021 local time, during his visit to Indonesia, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi answered a question about how to uphold multilateralism raised by the press.

Wang Yi said that the international community is expecting the incoming U.S. administration to restore multilateralism, and China also welcomes this. Genuine multilateralism requires earnest upholding of multilateralism, protection of multilateral principles, reflection of its effectiveness, and resistance to various forms of pseudo-multilateralism. Wang Yi said that genuine multilateralism should be based on adherence to the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and the basic norms governing international relations. We should adhere to respect for national sovereignty as well as equality of all countries, big or small; adhere to the diversity of the world, and respect for legitimate development rights of all countries and development paths of their own choice; adhere to consultation and negotiation in international affairs, and democracy in international relations. We are against closed-group politics in the name of multilateralism, oppose imposing rules made by a handful of countries to the international community, and resist ideologizing multilateralism to forge value-based alliances targeting specific countries. Wang Yi stressed that world peace, stability and development could be maintained only by upholding genuine multilateralism. Promoting pseudo-multilateralism will create new differences and trigger new conflicts, and the international community should be alert to this.
