China's foreign policy serves China's development, said Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing Tuesday.
Wang made the remarks at a lecture on international situation and China's foreign policy to 1,400 Chinese university students at Peking University.
China's foreign policy needs understanding and support from the Chinese people, especially young people, who are the future of the nation, said Wang.
China's diplomacy will help create a long-term stable international environment and reciprocal cooperation for China's economic development, he said.
While safeguarding national interests, China will also keep up with international trends, he said.
