The development and growth of China will enhance the force for safeguarding world peace. China is a big country that is traditionally in favor of peace. Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger pointed out that the Chinese nation is one of the most peaceful nations in history, and China has never invaded other nations by force. In the future, China will also be a force for peace.

At the Hamburg Summit held recently, former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt said," Throughout the history of China, China has never established colonies in other countries. In China's foreign policy, plundering the territory of other countries has never happened. China has been the most peaceful country in the history of the world." Since the People’s Republic of China was founded more than 60 years ago, China has always been an internationally recognized force of peace.

The world is changing and China is changing, but China’s commitment to safeguard world peace and promote common development will not change. In the report to the 18th National Congress of the CPC, Hu Jintao pointed out that we must firmly adhere to peaceful development and takes it as one of the eight basic requirements for winning a new victory of socialism with Chinese characteristics under the new historical conditions.

In the future, China will continue to hold high the banner of "peace, development, cooperation and win-win", promote equality and mutual trust, inclusiveness, mutual learning, and win-win cooperation spirit, and make its due contributions for the peaceful development of the world, the prosperity and progress of mankind with a more open, inclusive and cooperative attitude, and with more positive and promising efforts.
