BEIJING, June 21 (People's Daily Online) -- The World Peace Forum will hold its second annual meeting at Tsinghua University from June 27 to June 28. The theme of this year’s meeting is "International Security in a Transforming World: Peace, Development and Innovation," said Yan Xuetong, Secretary General of World Peace Forum, at a press conference today.

The World Peace Forum was founded in 2012. The forum is hosted by Tsinghua University and China Institute of Foreign Affairs. The WPF is the first high-level international security forum organized by a Chinese institution.

The forum is held annually at Tsinghua University in summer with the purpose of providing world strategists a platform to discuss international security issues, on how to deal with global or regional security threats, how to strengthen international security cooperation and how to achieve lasting peace.

In 2013, the global and regional security issues remain complex and challenging. The international community is increasingly concerned about the attitudes and acts of China in terms of international security.

To this end, the 2013 World Peace Forum will focus on international security trends, innovative approaches to the maintenance of international security, international security areas of collaboration, and the development of international security relations with in-depth discussion. This year, the level of participant, the number of countries and regions as well as the extent of coverage and other aspects will surpass last year’s Forum.
