“China will be a builder of world peace,” says President Xi Jinping while commemorating the 50th anniversary of China with United Nations

Addressing an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of China’s return to the United Nations, Xi Jinping further stated that “China has always pursued an independent foreign policy of peace, upheld justice and resolutely opposed hegemonism and power politics.”

China’s President Xi Jinping pledged on Monday, October 25 that it would always uphold international peace and abide by international rules, calling for an increase in global cooperation on issues such as terrorism, climate change, cyber security and biosecurity. His remarks come in light of concerns expressed by the US and other countries regarding China’s growing global dominance. 

“Only by forming more inclusive global governance, more effective multilateral mechanisms and more active regional cooperations can we effectively deal with these issues,” he added. 

Addressing an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of China’s return to the United Nations, the President further stated that “China has always pursued an independent foreign policy of peace, upheld justice and resolutely opposed hegemonism and power politics.”

The comments made by Jinping indirectly address the United States’ continuous support to Taiwan as Beijing ramps up military pressure in the region. The Biden Administration had stated last week that the US was committed to defending the democratic government of Taipei from the military oppression of China. 

The tensions between the US and China have been on the rise since a trade war flared up between the two countries under Former US President Donald Trump’s administration. Meanwhile, during his speech, President Xi Jinping also asserted that China will be a “builder of world peace” and a “protector of international order.”

Xi Jinping pushed for all countries to uphold the ideals of peace, development, justice, democracy and freedom, deeming them the “common values of all mankind,” a phrase that he had coined and first used during a speech earlier this year in July while addressing the 100th anniversary of the ruling Chinese Communist Party.
