China intends to actively join the fight against global warming, announced President Xi Jinping during the session of the UN General Assembly. Consequently, China will not build coal-fired power plants abroad.
“China will step up its support to other developing countries to promote green and low-carbon energy and will not build new coal-fired power plants abroad,” Chinese President Xi Jinping assured. He also promised to deliver two billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to the world by the end of the year.
Xi’s speech was pre-recorded and played during a meeting of the UN General Assembly, as the Chinese president did not come to New York. Xi stressed that China has peaceful intentions in international relations and “has no intention of invading anyone, nor intimidating, or trying to impose its hegemony on anyone.”
– Disputes between countries should be resolved through dialogue and cooperation – said the leader of the People’s Republic of China. – The success of one country does not have to mean the failure of another country. The world is big enough to accommodate the common development and progress of all countries, emphasized Xi.
President of China: We must pursue dialogue
According to the PA agency, the Chinese leader, without mentioning the United States by name, said that “outside military interventions and the so-called democratic transformations involve nothing but harm.” – We must strive for dialogue and inclusiveness instead of confrontation and exclusion – said Xi.
Earlier on Tuesday, the American president Joe Biden during his speech before the UN General Assembly, he referred to competition with China. The US president announced that although his country would “compete vigorously,” defend its values and allies, it would not pursue a “new cold war”.
