The following are some quotable quotes from Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, who is at the United Nations headquarters for a series of activities of the world body.

"From now on, China will further strengthen and improve its foreign assistance and contribute to its due share to an early realization of the the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) throughout the world." -- Wen said when addressing the UN high-level meeting on the MDGs.

"The international community should prioritize African development and poverty alleviation so as to fulfill the MDGs in the coming five years."

"We are convinced that the MDGs will be achieved as scheduled on the vast land of China."

"To fight against HIV/AIDS is the common responsibility of mankind." -- Wen said at a UN panel to discuss ways to enhance anti-AIDS efforts as part of a global campaign to meet the MDGs.

"China will try its best to participate in international cooperation aimed at ensuring better health for women and children." -- Wen said at the launching ceremony of a multi-billion-U.S. dollar plan of the United Nations to save the lives of women and children.

"China pledged to play a more active role in UN affairs in various sectors and to strengthen its partnership with the UN." -- Wen said during his meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

"China and the United States should positively carry out a large-scale economic and trade cooperation. Political and strategic mutual trust should be the precondition of such cooperation." -- Wen said while meeting celebrities from the U.S. economic and financial community.

"The RMB exchange rate isn't responsible for the mounting U.S. trade deficits. The reason lies in the structure of Sino-U.S. investment and trade. Both countries should carry out a large-scale trade investment cooperation based on equality, mutual trust and mutual benefit."

"China urges Japan to release the illegally detained Chinese skipper immediately and unconditionally." -- Wen said when meeting with some Chinese nationals and Chinese Americans in the United States.

"If Japan clings to its mistake, China will take further actions, and the Japanese side shall bear all the consequences that arise,"
