China's peaceful development is win-win to others and it's a blessing and opportunity to the whole world, Chinese ambassador to Britain Liu Xiaoming said in London Thursday.

The thinking and the direction of China's development for the next five years can be seen at its 12th Five Year Plan which boils down into two key terms --"scientific development" and "peaceful development," Liu said in a speech delivered at the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

"China's future has never been so closely linked to that of the rest of the world and it's scientific development calls for international cooperation and a peaceful environment," the ambassador said.

"China's peaceful development is open, cooperative and win-win to others," Liu emphasized. "It is a blessing and opportunity to the world. The more developed China becomes, the greater its contribution to the world will be."

Liu pointed out as China has become the world's largest exporter and manufacturer and has attracted over 700 billion U.S. dollars of foreign investment over the past decade, and that China 's peaceful development is an engine and opportunity for world economic growth.

Taking China's active involvement in UN peacekeeping missions and its efforts to facilitate the Six-Party Talks as examples, Liu said China's peaceful development has proved to be a strong force for world peace and stability.

Liu urged his audience to reject stereotyped thinking, try to hear, to see and to understand China with an open mind, and seize opportunities presented by China's development.
