In 2015, from the Ministerial Meeting of the China-CELAC (Community of Latina American and Caribbean States) Forum to the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) Council of Heads of Governments, Beijing has promoted friendly relations among countries via multi-lateral diplomacy. 


Last September, Chinese President Xi Jinping anchored the Round Table on South-South Cooperation and a Global Summit of Women (GSW) at the United Nations headquarters.

Xi gave a speech at the UN Peacekeeping Summit and the Climate Change luncheon. The world community respects China's voice, while UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Beijing is an indispensable partner for the UN.

Nations are benefiting economically from China, and listening to Beijing's views on reform of the global governing system.  Beijing seeks cooperation to undertake greater responsibility for global governance.

Chinese leaders have more chances to highlight Beijing's proposals at multi-lateral meetings, such as the four proposals of developing relations with neighboring countries and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's response to the South China Sea issue.

China is taking a leading position in multi-lateral diplomacy by establishing China-Region cooperative mechanisms  with  most regions across the world. Such cooperative mechanisms can promote friendly relations in an efficient manner. Although visiting countries are limited in numbers, multi-diplomacy can push forward friendly relations.

Beijing has favored summit diplomacy among heads of states, while substantial achievements have been made that include the China-African Comprehensive Strategic and Cooperative Partnership, South-South Climate Cooperation Fund, etc.

At the UN Climate Summit in Paris, Xi and other leaders signed a consensus agreement, while China and the US played key roles in communications. Beijing has also raised the level of partnerships with African countries, promoting better relation with southeast countries and pushing forward further cooperation with Latin-American countries.

Along with the Belt and Road initiative, China's multi-lateral diplomacy has introduced Chinese technology and products to the world, as well as Beijing’s views on world affairs to avoid misunderstandings.  In a multi-lateral framework, China holds stable bilateral relations with most countries, which have contributed to a peaceful, friendly and cooperative world situation.
