Thank you, Mr. Li. Due to limited time, we will have one more question. 


The United States will be hosting the APEC leaders' summit very soon in San Francisco in November. Will Chinese President Xi Jinping be attending? What will that suggest about the role and importance of multilateral advancement and how China carries out its head-of-state diplomacy?

Wang Yi:

As a responsible country, China consistently participates in significant multilateral forums. Regarding the arrangement of the APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, we are maintaining close contact with relevant parties and will release information at an appropriate time.

You mentioned multilateral diplomacy, which is an important approach for China to engage in global governance and advance the building of a global community of shared future. It is also an essential platform for head-of-state diplomacy. President Xi Jinping has attached great importance to multilateral diplomacy, and China is playing an increasingly significant role in global governance.

We champion and practice genuine multilateralism in global governance. To build a global community of shared future, we must oppose all forms of unilateralism, camp confrontation, and power politics, firmly uphold the authority and status of the United Nations, and remain committed to the vision of global governance characterized by extensive consultation and joint contribution for shared benefits. Global affairs must be discussed by all, and the benefits of governance must be shared by all.

APEC is the highest-level and most influential economic cooperation mechanism covering a wide range of fields in the Asia-Pacific region. The 30th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, scheduled for the end of this year, should serve as a platform for cooperation rather than a stage for confrontation. As the world's largest developing country and a crucial member of APEC, China is willing to meet the international community's expectations and play a pivotal role in ensuring the success of this year's APEC meeting. Together with all parties, we anticipate that the U.S., as the host country, will assume its responsibilities and showcase openness, fairness, inclusiveness and responsibility to create more favorable conditions for the meeting to run smoothly. Thank you.
