Wang Yi: China and Russia are Collaborating To Create a Just World Order

April 6, 2015 (EIRNS)—That was the message emphasized by China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi in an interview with Russian news service Interfax, published today as he arrived in Moscow for discussions with his Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

"Multi-polarity is a main global trend. Our countries share an opinion that the formation of a just and rational multi-polar world order will meet the interests of lasting peace and stability on Earth. At the same time, the multi-polar world order gives more space to development of all countries and offers them a broader chance,"

he said.

"China and Russia have been closely interacting in international and regional problems and working together to promote the idea of multi-polarity for years....

"Together with Russia, we are seeking to connect with leading nations and develop equal and stable cooperation; we are pooling efforts to achieve a higher place and role in global affairs for a broad range of developing countries and emerging markets....

"We want the United Nations to bear main responsibility for global peace and security. We want the UN to play a central role in global affairs and international relations to be democratized,"

he said. Small and medium-sized countries must be given a greater voice, too.

He added that China and Russia are also contributing to developing the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), and "other new mechanisms supporting the formation of a multi-polar world order."

Finalizing the preparations for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s May visit to Moscow was to be a leading topic on the agenda of the meeting of the two Foreign Ministers.
