Echoing the statement at the UN General Assembly, President Xi Jinping reaffirmed China's role in promoting peace and development at the UN Leader's Summit on Peacekeeping. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China has taken part in peacekeeping operations for 25 years.

The message is clear and loud. China will continue to be a major contributing country in UN peacekeeping operations.

This is just one of six steps announced by President Xi to improve and strengthen the global peacekeeper force.

He also said China will consider a UN request to provide more Chinese engineering soldiers, and transport and medical staff.

And China will train 2,000 peacekeepers from other countries, and carry out 10 mine clearance programs over the next five years.

The country will also provide free military aid to the tune of 100 million U.S. dollars to the African Union, to support the building of the African standby force and the African capacity for immediate response to crisis.

The Chinese President also said a helicopter squad will join UN peacekeeping operations in Africa.

And a pledge of one billion US dollars over the next decade was announced to support the United Nations' efforts to further international cooperation and global peace and development.
