UNITED NATIONS — State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Sept 27 that China stands ready to work with other parties to fulfill its due responsibilities as a major country for upholding global peace and justice.

The world today is not a peaceful place, as unilateralism and protectionism are posing major threats to the international order, Wang said in his speech at the General Debate of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly.

At a time when the future of the world is at stake, China has never been and will never be an onlooker, he noted.

"As a founding member of the United Nations, we will work with other countries to build a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind," Wang said.

"We will be resolute in upholding the stature and role of the United Nations, the international system underpinned by the UN, and the international order anchored upon international law," he added.

Permanent members of the Security Council need to lead by example, as major countries shoulder special responsibilities for maintaining a stable international order, Wang said, adding that China supports the new round of efforts by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to reform the UN system and make it more efficient and equitable.

China has set up an 8,000-strong peacekeeping standby force and permanent peacekeeping police squads. They have met standards for operation and are ready for action, according to Wang.
