On June 28, 2019, General Secretary Xi Jinping attended the G20 Osaka Summit
and delivered an important speech,
He urged the G20 members to uphold the spirit of partnership,
and properly address differences.
Harmony is the soul of traditional Chinese culture,
The idea of “peace being precious” is deeply rooted in our national genes,
and inherited in today's actions.
In the era of globalization,
China always adheres to the spirit of partnership featuring mutual support and win-win cooperation,
and is committed to building a community of a shared future for mankind.
By proposing Belt and Road Initiative,
to involve more countries and regions in economic globalization,
and putting forward a vision of global governance featuring extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits,
to promote the construction of a new type of international relations of mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation,
China has continuously contributed its wisdom and strength,
and taken practical actions to promote world peace, stability and development.
Specifically, to carry forward the spirit of partnership means that
in foreign exchanges, especially when encountering differences,
we need to engage in consultation as equals,
manage differences while seeking common ground, and build greater consensus,
This is the requirement for both the form and the substance of diplomacy.
In form, we should follow the principle that all countries, big or small, are equal
and welcome to participate in cooperation,
The big should not bully the small,
No exclusive small camp or alliance should exist.
In substance, we should more recognize that
with the accelerated development and integration of the world economy,
only a community of shared interests, responsibilities and future covering the whole world
can be the fundamental trend of world development.
Therefore, countries should strive to expand their common interests,
and enlarge rather than narrow the "circle of friends".
A single flower does not make spring,
while one hundred flowers in full blossom bring spring to the garden.
Countries should enhance mutual trust in good faith,
eliminate differences through consensus,
and promote win-win cooperation,
so as to jointly build a world of lasting peace, universal security,
common prosperity, openness and inclusiveness.
