President Xi Jinping will attend the series of summits marking the 70th anniversary of the UN from September 26 to 28, including the General Debate of the UN General Assembly and UN Development Summit, as well as the Global Leaders' Meeting on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment and the Roundtable on South-South Cooperation proposed by China. This is the first time for President Xi Jinping to attend the UN summits and therefore is of great historic significance.

On September 21, the Foreign Ministry released China's Position Paper on the 70th Anniversary of the UN, comprehensively introducing China's views on major issues related to the UN's 70 anniversary and elaborating China's positions and propositions on the important events of the summits, the role of the UN Security Council, UN peace-keeping missions, public health security, children, education, rights and interests of the handicapped, climate change, terrorism, cyber security, human rights, enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of the UN and other issues.

The Position Paper points out that as an outcome of World Anti-Fascist War, the UN embodies the ardent hope of people around the world for peace and development. In the past 70 years, as the most representative and authoritative intergovernmental organization in the world, the UN, with its three pillars of peace and security, development, and human rights, has played an irreplaceable role in promoting human progress. Seventy years on, the UN Charter remains as relevant as ever. It is important that the international community renews the spirit of the Charter and, more importantly, enrich and reinvigorate it in light of the trend of our times and the needs of the world.

The Position Paper stresses that the 70th anniversary of the UN is an important opportunity for the international community to review history, safeguard the victorious outcome of the World Anti-Fascist War, look ahead to the future and turn the vision of the UN Charter into reality at an early date. The international community should uphold the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, implement the concept of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security, advance global development cooperation, promote greater democracy and the rule of law in international relations, build a new type of international relations with win-win cooperation at the core and thus jointly forge a community of shared destiny for mankind.
