On September 24, 2022 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with the President of the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly Csaba Kőrösi on the sidelines of the UNGA session in New York.

Wang Yi said that the UN is the core mechanism and the most important platform for safeguarding multilateralism, and China was the first country to sign the UN Charter, and always calls for and practices true multilateralism. China firmly upholds the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, firmly supports and upholds the core position of the UN in international affairs, firmly supports the UN General Assembly in playing an important role in responding to global challenges, and firmly supports the President of the UN General Assembly in his work.

Wang Yi said that the world today is far from being peaceful. President Xi Jinping puts forward the Global Security Initiative, and advocates a vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security, providing China's input to reducing the peace deficit and addressing security challenges. President Xi also puts forward the Global Development Initiative (GDI), making China's contributions to the concentrated effort to promote development and accelerate the achievement of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, thus winning positive response and support from the international community. China stands ready to step up coordination with the UN to mobilize more resources and form greater synergy.

Kőrösi said that as an advocate of multilateralism and an important cooperation partner of the UN, China has played a key role in the affairs of the UN General Assembly. Kőrösi thanked the Chinese side for providing long-standing support to the President of the UN General Assembly in fulfilling his duty, and will continue to strengthen cooperation with the Chinese side to jointly address global challenges. He noted that the important initiatives put forward by President Xi Jinping have provided visions and solutions for building up consensus and effectively responding to current challenges. Kőrösi looked forward to enhancing coordination with the Chinese side in areas like climate change response and water resources protection to ensure effective implementation of the Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Wang Yi stressed that sustainable development is the common cause of humanity. Briefing Kőrösi on the Ministerial Meeting of the Group of Friends of the GDI China chaired several days ago, Wang noted that China will take another seven measures to implement the GDI, and has presented global sustainable development data products to the UN. Wang expressed China’s readiness to maintain communication with the Office of the President of the UN General Assembly on green development and global water resources protection, and China’s support for the effort to hold a successful 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
