Updated: 2015-09-16 23:22

China will work with other countries to lend new impetus to world peace. Peace is the foundation for human survival, while justice is what world peace is built upon. The common understanding and conclusions about the tragic history of the world anti-fascist war represent a red line that cannot be crossed. There must be no confusion on this matter of principle in the international community.

Not long ago, China commemorated the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the World Anti-Fascist War. The purpose was to learn from history and embrace a future where justice and peace prevail. At the high-level events marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the UN, President Xi will review, together with other state leaders, mankind's arduous journey in pursuit of peace, outline China's principled positions on major and immediate international issues and announce important measures China will take to support the UN which will demonstrate China's commitment to shoulder its responsibilities and uphold world peace. President Xi will also expound on the principles that guide China's active support to and participation in UN peacekeeping missions and express China's willingness to contribute to the UN efforts in fulfilling its mandate of peace and security.

China will work together with other countries to draw a new blueprint for global development. The UN Sustainable Development Summit will put international development on a new journey. The international community looks forward to a Summit that will set ambitious development goals, boost global confidence for development, promote global development partnership and allow more developing countries to benefit from global development.

At the Summit, President Xi will take part in the discussions on how to promote global development, expound on the vision of equitable, open, all-round and innovation-driven development, and put forward new initiatives for greater international development cooperation for ensuring a good start for the post-2015 development agenda. President Xi will chair the High-level Roundtable on South-South Cooperation to be co-hosted by China and the UN. He and leaders of other developing countries will review past experience, plan for the future, and formulate an action plan for deepening South-South cooperation in the world of today, aiming to bring South-South cooperation to a new height. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the World Conference on Women in Beijing. China and the UN have put forward a joint initiative of convening a Global Leaders' Meeting on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment, which has received warm responses from many member states. This will be the first time that commitment is made at the leaders' level on issues concerning women worldwide, which will open a new historical chapter for the empowerment of women. President Xi will also attend an event on climate change where he will have in-depth discussions with leaders from other countries on ways to address climate change and realize sustainable development.

Diplomatic Envoys,

Dear Friends,

As a Chinese saying goes, the fire burns high when everybody brings wood to it. We believe that President Xi's visit to the United States and the United Nations will surely strengthen the bonds of friendship and cooperation between China and the US, advance world peace and development and open up a better future for China-US relations and mankind!

Thank you.
