On Monday, Chinese President Xi Jinping said that all countries should observe the international law with the U.N. at the core without exception, and individual countries cannot write the global rules in a veiled attack on the U.S.

Relations between the US and China are at their lowest level ever-

“We should firmly uphold the authority and standing of the United Nations and work together to practice genuine multilateralism”.

“Countries should uphold the international system with the United Nations at its core, the international order underpinned by international law and the basic norms of international relations based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter,” Xi said.

In a veiled attack on the U.S. and its allies, Xi said, “international rules can only be made by the 193 UN Member States together, and not decided by individual countries or blocs of countries.”

“The 193 UN Member States should observe international rules, and there is and should be no exception. Countries should respect the United Nations, take good care of the U.N. family, refrain from exploiting the Organisation. He said that United Nations plays an even more positive role in advancing humanity’s noble cause of peace and development.

The relations between the U.S. and China are at an all-time low. The two countries are currently engaged in a bitter confrontation over various issues, including trade, Beijing’s aggressive military moves in the disputed South China Sea and human rights in Hong Kong and Xinjiang region.

Xi said Chinese people have always upheld the authority and sanctity of the U.N. and practised multilateralism, and China’s cooperation with the U.N. has deepened steadily for the past 50 years.

He said China has faithfully fulfilled its responsibility and mission as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, stayed true to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, and upheld the central role of the U.N. in international affairs.

China has stood actively for a political settlement of disputes through peaceful means, Xi said, adding that it has sent over 50,000 peacekeepers to U.N. peacekeeping operations and is now the second-largest financial contributor to both the U.N. and its peacekeeping operations.

He said the international community should cooperate and work together to address the various challenges and global issues facing humanity.

The international community is confronted by regional disputes and global issues such as terrorism, climate change, cybersecurity and biosecurity, Xi said.

“Only with more inclusive global governance, more effective multilateral mechanisms and more active regional cooperation, can these issues be addressed effectively,” he said.

A review of the past can light the way forward. Standing at a new historical starting point, China will stay committed to the path of peaceful development and always be a builder of world peace. China will remain committed to the direction of reform and opening-up and always be a contributor to global growth. China will stay committed to the path of multilateralism and always be a defender of the international order.

As an ancient Chinese poem reads, “Green hills immerse in the same cloud and rain. The same moon lights up towns however far away.” Let us join hands, stand on the right side of history and the side of human progress, and work tirelessly for the lasting and peaceful development of the world and for building a community with a shared future for humankind!
