-- From containing the COVID-19 pandemic and rebooting the global economy, to forging a free and open trade environment amid rising unilateralism and protectionism, China has voiced its solid support for coordinated international efforts to tackle global threats and promote common development.

-- "In my view, the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits should guide our way forward," Chinese President Xi Jinping said Saturday at the Group of 20 (G20) Leaders' Summit via video link. "We should uphold multilateralism, pursue openness and inclusiveness, promote mutually beneficial cooperation and keep pace with the times."

-- The Chinese leader believes that the extensive appeal of building a community with a shared future for mankind is the right way for humanity to overcome common challenges and build a more prosperous and better world.

Global leaders have convened in a series of virtual meetings this month to address the most pressing challenges facing mankind.

STAND IN SOLIDARITY

The COVID-19 pandemic, as Xi described at the 20th meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) early this month, has accelerated shifts in the international landscape.

Over 58 million people have contracted the virus with more than 1.3 million killed. With shrinking trade and investment as well as impeded flows of goods and personnel, the global economy is experiencing the worst recession since the Great Depression in the 1930s. Unilateralism, protectionism and acts of bullying are resurging.

"We must take up the most powerful weapon of solidarity and cooperation," Xi said, stressing the need to build a community of health for all, a community of security for all, a community of development for all and a community of cultural exchanges for all.

Since the onset of the pandemic, China has been standing side by side with the rest of the world in the fight against the coronavirus.

From sending expert teams and donating essential medical supplies, to jointly building test labs and sharing its experience in containing the virus, China has never hesitated to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.
