The United Nations (UN) is a banner of multilateralism and a core of multilateral mechanism, and the international community needs a stronger UN more than ever under current circumstances, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said when meeting with UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed on Thursday in Beijing.

Wang said that as a permanent member of the Security Council, China will continue to firmly uphold multilateralism and support the UN to play a critical role in international affairs.

China will resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of developing countries and is willing to work closely with the UN on global issues such as climate change, he added.

China will work with the UN to jointly promote cooperation on Belt and Road, Wang noted.

Amina said that she appreciated China's firm support for multilateralism and the work of the UN, expecting closer coordination and cooperation with China.
