Welcome to the website of Chinese Foreign Ministry.
Today's world is undergoing a profound and complex transformation. While peace and development remain the underlying trend of the times, the planet we live in is hardly a tranquil place. With China's relations with the outside world experiencing historic changes, its destiny has become even more closely linked with that of the whole world.
The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China laid down an overarching plan for advancing socialism with Chinese characteristics under the new circumstances and drew a brilliant blueprint for completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects and accelerating socialist modernization drive. It is a challenging task before us. We should work hard to manage our own affairs well while doing a good job in handling our relations with the outside world. We will continue to hold high the banner of peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit, promote the spirit of equality, mutual trust, inclusiveness, mutual learning and mutually beneficial cooperation in international relations, firmly commit ourselves to peaceful development and the win-win strategy of opening up, and grow friendship and cooperation with other countries in a comprehensive way on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence.
China's diplomacy in the new era has been given a more glorious mandate with brighter prospects and a heavier workload. Acting in the spirit of the 18th CPC National Congress and bearing in mind the domestic and international situations, we will seize the opportunities appropriately, meet the challenges calmly, promote China's diplomacy in all fields and at all levels, firmly safeguard China's sovereignty, security and development interests, and strive to shape a more favorable external environment for completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects. We will keep to the principles of "putting people first" and "conducting diplomacy for the people" and earnestly protect the lawful rights and interests of Chinese nationals and legal persons overseas. We will play well the role of a constructive and responsible major country, join the international community in promoting the lofty cause of peace and development and work hard to build a harmonious world with lasting peace and common prosperity.
