|Wang Yi: Uphold the Torch of Multilateralism, and Drive away the Darkness of Unilateralism|
On December 23, 2019, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi gave an exclusive year-end interview to People's Daily and China Media Group.
Wang Yi said, confronted with unilateralism, the international community has no choice but to join hands and firmly resist this perverse trend. As a responsible member of the international community, China has been a strong champion of multilateralism. Wherever he traveled in 2019, President Xi Jinping made China's voice heard. It is a voice of justice that rejects unilateralism, hegemonism and power politics in favor of multilateralism, the authority of the UN and the norms of international relations. President Xi has pointed out that our commitment to multilateralism requires us to safeguard peace and development for all, to uphold international fairness and equity and promote win-win results, and to reform the international governance system and build a community with a shared future for mankind. The goal, principle and direction he has set capture the essence of multilateralism of our times. They are being recognized and endorsed by more and more countries. As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the UN next year, China is ready to work with the rest of the world to uphold the shining torch of multilateralism, and drive away the darkness of unilateralism, and clear up the sky for world peace, stability and development for all.
