Major powers in the world have adjusted their foreign policies as well as development and national security strategies and in 2012. Existing great powers and rising powers have continued to struggle for a bigger say in setting international rules and orders. China should be totally sober and calm facing the complex and changeable international situation.

Peaceful development is the inevitable choice of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and is in line with the trend of the times. The diplomatic achievements China has made in 2012 have further strengthened the country's confidence in its development path, theories, and political system. The policy of peaceful development is neither a makeshift nor a wild fantasy.

The rise of a great power is bound to change international landscapes. China’s road of peaceful development is filled with flowers and thorns. The frequent disputes China has experienced in 2012 have made it more sober, and increased its ability to solve complex problems.

China's rise has challenged the hegemony of certain country, and deprived it of long-held sense of superiority. It will continue to contain China’s rise, and China should be on high alert over such strategic intent that is contrary to the trend of the times and is bound to fail.

China is patient and perseverant enough to build a new type of great power relations. As a developing country, it should focus on doing its own things well and constantly enhancing its comprehensive national strength. It should be calm in face of pressure, correctly grasp the situation, hope for the best but prepare for the worst, bravely overcome various challenges, and make the right move at the right time.

2013 is coming. China has enough strength and confidence to move steadily forward on the road of peaceful development.
