|BEIJING – China's President and CPC General Secretary Xi Jinping held a keynote speech at the CPC High level dialogue with world political parties on December 1st, in Beijing.|
"Building a better World together" was the title of the speech, in which President Xi invited political parties all around the world to work together on global development, human progress and not to be afraid to take initiative. He stated that political parties play an important role in the political life of the country and are also an important force in promoting the progress of human civilization.
Since the beginnings of the humankind, natural disasters, wars and conflicts have always been present, but that doesn't need to be the case in the future. Rapid progress in technology, IT and artificial intelligence had connected the people of the world to levels that are unprecedented, but that also means that the people are facing unprecedented global problems. The future and destiny of people in all countries of the world are becoming more and more closely linked. People of all countries in the world should share the idea: "one world, one family", understand each other, seek common ground while resolving and respecting differences, and jointly strive to build a community of global human destiny. The Belt and Road Initiative, proposed in 2013, started with this concept in mind.
Xi pointed out that the world is changing fast and that political parties can't live in the past and must follow the world’s trends. They need to closely integrate their own development with the development of the country, nation and the people. Political parties in different countries should enhance mutual trust, strengthen communication and cooperate closely with each other and explore ways to establish new types of political party relationships, focused on seeking common ground while reserving differences, mutual respect and mutual learning – building stronger international community.
"All people live on the same Earth, and security of one country can not be built by creating insecurity in another. Threats posed to one country, will also soon become challenges for the other ones. No one is able to fight alone."
Xi stated that Chinese Communist Party is the biggest political party in the world, and has obligations to its people and is focused on sustainable development of China as a part of this world. China has developed its own practice, but is not trying to "export" it, nor asking other countries to "copy" it. CPC will always fight for the peace and tranquillity in the world, follow the path of peaceful development, actively promote the building of a global partnership and take the initiative to find political solutions in difficult international issues. CPC will contribute to the common development of the world, contribute to the global exchange and mutual appreciation of world civilizations.
A three-day CPC High level dialogue with world political parties in Beijing is being attended by more than 600 leaders from nearly 300 political parties and organizations from over 120 countries, including CSEBA.
