Chinese President Hu Jintao addressed the UN General Assembly during its general debate on Wednesday to elaborate on China's position on major world and regional issues.
Chinese Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei has said Hu's speech would reflect China's views on the current international situation and major global issues.
"In his speech, the Chinese president will also outline China's stand on how to safeguard world peace, boost common development, promote mutual benefit and seek harmonious co-existence," he said last week.
Hu arrived in New York on Monday for a series of UN meetings. He is also scheduled to participate in a financial summit of the Group of 20 in Pittsburgh on Thursday and Friday.
