China continues to pursue peaceful development,opening-up: foreign minister


09:48, December 10, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said Friday that 2011 marks a year of great progress for China's peaceful development course.

He made the remarks in an address at a New Year Reception hosted by the Foreign Ministry.

Noting that the world is moving toward multi-polarization, economic globalization and social informationization, Yang said countries in the world are becoming increasingly interdependent.

At the same time, as world economic recovery remains fragile and imbalanced, and some global challenges are becoming increasingly prominent, it is an irresistible trend for countries to seek for peace, development and cooperation, he said.

In 2011, China celebrated the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, made a good start on its 12th Five-Year Plan, and maintained the momentum of steady and fast economic growth, said Yang.

In this year, China enhanced coordination with all major powers, deepened good-neighborly friendship with its neighbors, and consolidated traditional friendship with a vast number of developing countries, Yang said.

China also actively participated in the reform of global economic governance, pushed forward the cooling down and resolution of hot issues, and promoted extensive cultural exchanges with other countries, the official said.
