On October 31, 2019, Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang attended upon invitation the Seminar "China's Diplomacy in the 70 Years: In Commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Inaugural Issue of China International Studies, and addressed the function. Zheng Zeguang conveyed State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi's congratulations on the 60th anniversary of the inaugural issue of the journal, and highly appraised the positive role the journal has played in such aspects as tracking and analyzing the international situation, interpreting China's foreign policy, promoting international academic exchanges and conveying China's opinions.

Zheng Zeguang said, 70 years ago, the birth of the People's Republic of China opened up a magnificent historical journey of China's diplomacy. Over the past 70 years, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), China's diplomacy has focused on national rejuvenation, national development and reform and opening-up, on safeguarding China's sovereignty, security and development interests, and on safeguarding world peace and promoting common development, making historic achievements. Since the 18th CPC National Congress, under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, the diplomatic front has continued to forge ahead and overcome difficulties, opening up new prospects for major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics. The key to the success of China's diplomacy is attributed to the strong leadership of the CPC and the firm support of the Chinese people. It is also inseparable from the hard work of generations of Chinese diplomats. The world today is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. New problems and circumstances are emerging and opportunities and challenges coexist. We should closely unite around the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, follow the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and the spirit of the fourth plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, actively coordinate domestic and international situation, properly respond to, guard against and defuse various risks and challenges, and advance major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics in the new era.

Zheng Zeguang stressed, the world is undergoing epoch-making changes and China's diplomacy stands at a new historical starting point. Comrades engaged in the study of international issues face a wider stage and more arduous tasks. We need to take a clear political stand, and keep to the right direction; adhere to the scientific method, and focus on eliminating the false and preserving the true; contribute Chinese wisdom and make China's voice heard; and actively and better serve the central task and be good "advisors" and "consultants".
