Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed multilateralism is the correct path and called for strengthening global governance when giving a speech at Tsinghua University in Beijing, on Saturday.

In his remarks, Wang condemned the rise of protectionism and unilateralism when the world is facing the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Human society is a community of shared future, said Wang, reiterating cooperation and multilateralism are the correct path and cementing global governance is the trend of the times.

Wang called on the global community to discard ideological bias and build a global governance system under the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution, and shared benefits.

He also called for joint efforts in resisting unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction to defend international justice and order.

Speaking of China's foreign policy, the foreign minister said China remains committed to peaceful development and win-win cooperation.

China opposes protectionism in any form and will continue to support the multilateral trade system with WTO as its core, Wang vowed, adding the country will stick to its opening-up policy.

China is ready to safeguard world peace and contribute to common development at the time when multilateralism and cooperation are needed more than ever, said Wang.
