BEIJING, June 20 (ChinaMil) -- China's military development aims at safeguarding national sovereignty, security and development interests, and maintaining world peace and regional stability, a senior Chinese military official said Wednesday.

Fang Fenghui, member of the Central Military Commission (CMC) and chief of general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), made the remarks when he met yesterday with Ban Ki-Moon, the visiting secretary-general of the United Nations (UN)), and his party in Beijing.

The Chinese PLA has long been active in taking part in the peacekeeping actions under the framework of the UN and dispatching top-notch servicemen to carry out the UN peacekeeping missions, Fang Fenghui said.

He told the UN chief that the Chinese side is willing to further strengthen communication with the UN in the peacekeeping field and deepen cooperation in personnel training and peacekeeping operations, so as to make greater contributions to maintaining world peace and stability.

Among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, China has contributed the most peacekeepers to the UN peacekeeping missions, Ban Ki-Moon said.

He expressed that currently, the UN peacekeeping actions are confronted with various challenges and in dire need of more personnel who are as excellent as Chinese peacekeeping troops.

The UN chief hoped China would offer the UN greater support in such fields as training of peacekeepers and so on.
