The Chinese premier also called for common security and lasting peace in the world when addressing the UN Security Council summit.

In his speech entitled "Realize Common Security, Build Lasting Peace,"

Wen said the current international security situation is on the whole stable, but faces an increasing number of instable and uncertain factors.

He said the UN Security Council, as the core of collective security mechanism, should further increase its authority and shoulder more responsibilities in safeguarding international peace and security.

On Thursday, Wen also met with former U.S. President Bill Clinton. During the meeting, Wen said political and strategic mutual trust is the key to the further development of China-U.S. relations.

Wen said such a trust is the prerequisite and guarantee for the further growth of their bilateral relations. He noted that China-U.S. relations are currently at a crucial juncture, but on the whole, their common interests outweigh differences and disagreements.

For his part, Clinton said the coming decade is very important for U.S.-China relations, and the two countries should strengthen cooperation to face together various challenges. This will help the international community to regain and enhance confidence.

Wen left New York for home on Thursday after winding up a tightly scheduled three-day visit here.
