Jiang: China Remains Developing Nations' FriendChina was, is and will always be a trustworthy friend of the developing countries, Chinese President Jiang Zemin said in New York Friday.
In his speech at the breakfast he hosted in honor of the leaders from the developing world, Jiang put forward a four-point principle: sincerity and friendship, equal treatment; increasing coordination and strengthening cooperation; tapping potentials and learning from each other's strong points to offset one's weakness; and uniting as one to open up good future.
Jiang said that it is imperative for the developing nations to unite and push forward the establishment of a just, fair and new international political and economic order in a bid to change their own fate.
Jiang pointed out that the developing countries, which have effectively promoted the development of the multipolarization in the world, are a very important force in the international community.
On behalf of the guests present at the breakfast, South African President Thabo Mbeki, who is also chairman of the Non-aligned Movement, expressed his full agreement with China's stance on the South-South Cooperation.
Other leaders present at the breakfast were Olusegun Obasanjo, Nigerian president and chairman of the Group of 77; Seyyed Khatami, Iranian president and chairman of the Organization of Islamic Conference; Yasser Arafat, Palestinian president and chairman of the Arab League Council; Gnassingbe Eyadema, president of Togo and chairman of the Organization of African Unity; Tran Duc Luong, Vietnamese president and chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations; Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika; Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh; and Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi.
Jiang and the leaders present are in New York to attend the Millennium Summit, which kicked off Wednesday at the UN headquarters.
