Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, September 2 (Reporter Sun Yi) President Xi Jinping met with UN Secretary-General Guterres at the Great Hall of the People on September 2.

Xi Jinping pointed out that the United Nations is the banner of multilateralism. At present, unilateralism and protectionism are on the rise, impacting the international order and the global governance system. The world needs multilateralism and a strong United Nations more than ever. The most basic principle of multilateralism is that international affairs should be discussed and handled by all countries, and should be handled according to the rules agreed by all, and the interests and concerns of all countries should be taken into account. China has always firmly supported multilateralism, and always supported the maintenance of the authority and role of the United Nations. We expect the United Nations to uphold fairness and justice and play a leading role in maintaining world peace and promoting common development, especially in deepening global cooperation to solve global challenges. China's determination to comprehensively deepen reform will not change. We are willing to take practical actions to drive all parties to jointly adhere to trade liberalization and facilitation, and build an open world economy.

Xi Jinping emphasized that China and African countries have long-term friendship and share a common destiny. China-Africa cooperation has always been a heart-to-heart cooperation among developing countries. We attach no political strings and pursue no privileged interests. As long as we recognize what is beneficial to African countries and the African people, we will persevere in doing it and do it well. The Forum on China-Africa Cooperation is a model of South-South cooperation. The Beijing Summit will focus on solidarity, cooperation and common development, which is highly consistent with the goals and purposes of the United Nations. It is the moral responsibility of the United Nations to help Africa achieve peace and development. The United Nations should continue to put Africa as the top priority of its work, support African countries to solve African problems in African ways, and achieve long-term peace and stability on the entire African continent; help African countries accelerate development and support African countries. National unity and self-improvement and integrated construction, expanding the right to speak and influence in international affairs. China is willing to strengthen communication and conduct in-depth discussions with the United Nations on how to better support Africa.

African affairs have always been the top priority of the work of the United Nations. My participation in the meeting this time is to demonstrate the UN's support for Africa and China-Africa cooperation. Thanks to China for always caring about and attaching importance to Africa. The Forum on China-Africa Cooperation has become a model of South-South cooperation, will make important contributions to world peace and development, and has important global demonstration significance. I wish the Beijing Summit a complete success.

It is commendable that China firmly supports multilateralism, actively maintains multilateral order and promotes global governance. China's development is unstoppable, which is crucial to the cause of world peace and development. The United Nations is willing to strengthen dialogue and cooperation with China, is committed to building a rules-based multipolar world, and encourages all countries to participate in the "Belt and Road" construction cooperation. Thanks to China for overcoming difficulties and making great efforts to deal with global challenges such as climate change.
