China''s foreign minister on Wednesday hailed President Hu Jintao''s Japanese tour for the Group of Eight Summit''s outreach session, calling it a major diplomatic move which produces important achievements in many aspects.

President Hu, who arrived in Sapporo, capital of Hokkaido, late Monday, took part in over 20 activities during the past two days, Yang Jiechi said on his way home from Japan.

During the tour, Hu elaborated China''s stance on key international issues and made important proposals which will guide international cooperation, Yang concluded.

Through the G8 outreach session in recent years, communications between the world''s developed and developing countries have been conducted on key issues to coordinate stance and seek solutions to key issues, a move deemed conducive to the South-North cooperation and the settlement of global problems.

This year''s outreach session highlights the pressing issues like global economy, climate change, food and energy security -- issues not only confronted by the international community, but also China.

During the meeting, Hu proposed the building of a sustainable world economic system, an orderly international financial system, a just and reasonable international trade regime and a fair and effective global development mechanism.

This marked the first time that a Chinese leader has raised a set of comprehensive proposals on building the world''s economic system, which reflects China''s endeavor to push the economic globalization towards the direction of all-win situation and mutual benefits.

The proposals, echoed by many leaders during the meeting, also embody China''s strategic consideration and strong sense of responsibility as the world''s largest developing country, Yang said.

On the fight against climate change, Hu expounded China''s relevant policies and its measures to deal with the problem.

Hu pointed out that climate change, an issue of development in essence, should be resolved within the framework of sustainable development and called on participating nations at the G8 summit and its outreach session to observe the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and make constructive efforts to deal with climate change.

Hu described food security as an issue concerns not only every nation''s national economy and popular well-being, but world''s development and security.

China has made a major contribution to world''s food security by feeding about one fifth of the world''s population with only 9 percent of the world''s arable land.

On energy security, Hu emphasized that China follows the general principle of self-sufficiency, while striving to implement the policy of energy exploitation and conservation simultaneously, improve energy diversity, raise energy efficiency, promote the development of renewable energy and set concrete goals for saving energy and cutting emissions.
