China was ready to fully cooperate with all parties in a concerted effort to move the Conference on Disarmament (CD) into various substantive works as soon as possible, so as to promote the multilateral disarmament process, Chinese disarmament Ambassador Wang Qun said Tuesday.

In an opening statement marking China's holding of the CD rotating presidency, Ambassador Wang said, as a major developing country, China felt honored at this juncture upon assumption of the CD presidency.

At the same time, he added, the country was keenly aware of the historic responsibility on its shoulders.

The Chinese ambassador said the world was witnessing a renaissance in international arms control and disarmament. The international community, he said, generally wished to see multilateral disarmament, especially CD' s work revitalized so as to help achieve the goal of security for all through dialogue and mutually beneficial cooperation.

He also noted the growing political impetus that various parties injected into CD's work by citing that Chinese President Hu Jintao and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama had, on many occasions, expressed their unequivocal support, while UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had paid three visits to the CD.

In addition, Ambassador Wang said, more than 20 foreign ministers and dignitaries had come to address the CD since the beginning of 2011, calling for efforts to break its deadlock at the earliest possible date.
