State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi
(July 20, 2020)
Today is an important day in the history of Chinese diplomacy. Here we hold the inauguration ceremony of the Xi Jinping Diplomatic Thought Research Center. First of all, on behalf of all comrades on the diplomatic front, I would like to express my warm congratulations! At the same time, I also take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the experts and scholars who have long been devoted to studying and interpreting Xi Jinping's diplomatic thoughts and promoting the construction of China's diplomatic theory!
Looking back at human history, great times will inevitably produce great ideas. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, socialism with Chinese characteristics has headed into a new era, and the long-suffering Chinese nation has ushered in a great leap from standing up, becoming rich, and becoming strong. China today is approaching unprecedentedly the realization of the dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and approaching the center of the world stage like never before. At the same time, the world has entered a major change that has not been seen in a century, and is undergoing profound and complex changes. Facing the turbulent international situation, General Secretary Xi Jinping used the foresight of the great strategist to accurately grasp the laws of human social development, comprehensively judge the trend of the international situation and the historical position of our country, and put forward a series of Chinese characteristics, embodying the spirit of the times, A series of major theories, such as new ideas, new ideas, and new initiatives that lead the progress of human progress, clearly answered what kind of world and international relations China should promote, what kind of diplomacy China needs, and how to manage diplomacy in the new era. And practical issues, forming and establishing Xi Jinping’s new era of socialist diplomacy with Chinese characteristics, that is, Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thinking, which has pointed the way forward for China’s diplomacy in the new era and provided a fundamental follow.
Once a great idea is produced, it will in turn promote the progress of the times. In recent years, under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee and under the general planning of General Secretary Xi Jinping, Chinese diplomacy has guided Xi Jinping's diplomatic thinking to overcome difficulties, pioneer and enterprising, and has achieved historical achievements and created a new situation. We actively build a global partnership network, establish an all-round, multi-level, and three-dimensional diplomatic layout, forming a "friend circle" all over the world. We actively advocate the joint construction of the "Belt and Road", build the world's largest international cooperation platform, practice the concept of extensive consultation, joint construction and sharing, and promote mutual benefit and common development of partners. We take the initiative to lead the reform of the global governance system, promote the development of globalization in a more inclusive and inclusive direction, and promote the evolution of the international order in a more just and reasonable direction. We are fully committed to international cooperation in the fight against epidemics, advocated the establishment of a human health and health community, and played a due role in the global fight against the epidemic.
Xi Jinping's thought on diplomacy is a major achievement of epoch-making significance in the construction of New China's diplomatic theory. This important ideological system is clearly scientific, contemporary, advanced and practical, and we should study it in depth and fully understand it.
First of all, Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought is an organic component of Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era. Diplomacy is a concentrated expression of the will of the country, and diplomatic work is an important part of the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core attaches great importance to diplomatic work, starting from the strategic overall situation of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, focusing on the intertwined characteristics of the world’s major changes and China’s new era, it has made top-level design and strategic planning for the diplomacy of major powers with Chinese characteristics . Promoting the construction of a community of shared future for mankind and the establishment of a new type of international relations constitute Xi Jinping’s core ideas of diplomatic thought, which are incorporated into Xi Jinping’s “eight clear” and “fourteen persistent” socialist ideologies with Chinese characteristics in the new era. The leadership of the Chinese Communist Party is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and it is also the greatest political advantage of Chinese diplomacy. Strengthening the party's centralized and unified leadership and overall coordination of foreign work is the fundamental political guarantee for the diplomatic cause from victory to victory. Xi Jinping's diplomatic thinking deepened the regular understanding of the diplomacy of great powers with Chinese characteristics, which is a concentrated expression of the party's central government's thoughts on governance and governance in the field of diplomacy.
Second, Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought is the latest achievement of Marxism in the field of diplomacy in the 21st century. Engels pointed out, "Marx's whole world view is not a doctrine, but a method." Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought adheres to historical materialism and dialectical materialism, scientifically applies Marxist standpoints and methods, and pays attention to the integration of theory and practice, and the integration of epistemology and methodology. Gain a deep insight into the world's development trends, comprehensively examine the interaction between China and the world, and master the operating laws of globalization and global governance in the contradictory movement of productive forces and production relations, economic foundations, and superstructures. General Secretary Xi Jinping adhered to the human-oriented value orientation of Marxism, used the living spirit of seeking truth from facts, combined the basic principles of Marxism with the diplomatic practice of great powers with Chinese characteristics, and enriched and developed Marxism with a series of original and important ideas. The theory of international relations has achieved a historic leap in the field of diplomacy in the localization of Marxism.
Third, Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thought is the inheritance and innovation of Chinese excellent traditional culture. Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought fully absorbed the rich nutrition of China's excellent traditional culture, endowed it with a new era mark and humanistic connotation, and achieved creative transformation and innovative development. The concept of "Community of Human Destiny" contains the beautiful vision of "the world is for the public" and "world harmony". The elaboration of neighboring diplomatic policies embodies the historical heritage of being kind to neighbors, loving and not attacking. In the appeal for reform of global governance, the traditional wisdom of solidarity, harmony and nationhood was borrowed. In the process of building a global partnership, we have adhered to the harmonious concept of harmony, diversity and self-confidence. The value orientation of the correct view of righteousness and benefit demonstrates the moral integrity of advancing the benefits and helping the poor. General Secretary Xi Jinping creatively inherited the spirit of the ancient Silk Road and put forward a major initiative to jointly build the “Belt and Road”, transforming this achievement of human civilization into a new type of public product for international cooperation and common development. Agree.
Fourth, Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought is an inherited development of New China's diplomatic theory. Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought combines inheritance and development, sublimates the diplomatic thought of the leadership of several generations of New China, and expands the diplomatic theoretical system of New China. Xi Jinping’s Diplomatic Thought has given a clearer spirit of the times to traditional concepts such as an independent peaceful diplomatic policy, the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, and the promotion of the establishment of a new international political and economic order. height. In the practical work of the surrounding areas, Africa and other regions, it promotes my country's established policy propositions, and further puts forward important concepts such as sincerity, sincerity and sincerity, which has injected new impetus into the development of relations between my country and regional countries. Xi Jinping’s diplomatic ideology has carried forward New China’s just stand against colonialism, hegemony, and power politics. It has drawn a red line and a clear bottom line on major issues involving national sovereignty and territorial integrity. It has taken a series of firm measures to defend rights and resolutely defended National core interests and national dignity.
Fifth, Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thought is a sublation and transcendence of traditional international relations theory. In recent years, traditional international relations theories have become increasingly difficult to explain today's world, and viewpoints such as advocating strength and zero-sum games have become increasingly incompatible with the direction of the times. Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thinking combines China’s development with world development, the interests of the Chinese people and the common and fundamental interests of the world’s people, and proposes to build a community of shared future for mankind, to build lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, tolerance, cleanliness and beauty. In the world, to build new international relations of mutual respect, fairness and justice, and win-win cooperation, beyond the narrow scope of one country and one domain, beyond the traditional realist theory of international relations, and stand at the moral high ground of the development and progress of human society. The new concepts of global governance, security, development, civilization, and righteousness and benefit proposed by General Secretary Xi Jinping reflect the common aspirations of all countries in the world to pursue development and progress. They have distinct Chinese characteristics and contain common human values. The greatest common divisor for the people of all countries to build a better world together.
At present, the world is undergoing profound changes. The new crown pneumonia epidemic is still raging, the health of people in all countries is seriously threatened, economic globalization has suffered unprecedented impact, and the world economy has fallen into a deep recession. Unilateralism, protectionism, and bullying are acting against the current, and governance deficits, trust deficits, peace deficits, and development deficits are increasing. Facing the uncertain international situation, we must take Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought as the fundamental follow-up and action guide for all our work, maintain our strength in chaos, seize opportunities in changing situations, and continuously create a new situation in the diplomacy of great powers with Chinese characteristics . to this end:
We must further strengthen our research and truly understand the connotation and essence of Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thinking. Xi Jinping's diplomatic ideology is rigorous and broad and profound. It is not an overnight success to truly learn and understand. The diplomatic front must take learning Xi Jinping's diplomatic thoughts as a long-term important political task, and be persistent and long-term success. We should take the opportunity of establishing Xi Jinping's Diplomatic Thought Research Center to profoundly understand the core essence, spiritual essence, rich connotation, and practical requirements of this idea, and fully understand its significance in the times, theory, practice, and world. We must integrate the study of Xi Jinping’s thoughts on diplomacy with the study of Xi Jinping’s thinking on socialism with Chinese characteristics for the new era, as well as the study of Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thinking of the "Three Represents", and the scientific outlook on development. The history of New China, the history of reform and opening up, and the history of socialist development are connected.
We must actively carry out international exchanges, so that countries and people of all countries have a deeper understanding of the scientific and advanced nature of Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thinking. Xi Jinping's thought on diplomacy is a thought of world significance, and it has important practical significance for solving various global challenges facing the world today. It is precisely because of this that the international community has paid more and more attention to Xi Jinping's diplomatic thinking. We must both "go out" and "please come in" to strengthen dialogue and exchanges with governments, political parties, think tanks, the media, and other sectors of the world, accurately, comprehensively, and thoroughly explain the rich connotation of Xi Jinping's diplomatic thought, and promote the construction of a community of human destiny , To build new international relations and other important concepts, and strive to form more international consensus. We also need to learn and apply Xi Jinping's diplomatic thoughts, tell the Chinese story, Chinese ideas, and Chinese plans in the international community, and continuously increase China's influence and appeal.
We must persist in applying what we have learned and continue to use Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thinking to guide the practice of major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics. Thought is the precursor to action, and theory is the guide to practice. We must adhere to the integration of learning, thinking and application, and the unity of knowledge, belief and practice. From practice to practice, Xi Jinping's diplomatic thinking should be used to guide the practice of diplomatic work, to maintain a high degree of ideological and political action with the Party Central Committee, and resolutely implement the practice of Jinping. Secretary's diplomatic decision deployment. We must use the latest theories of Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thoughts to arm our minds and guide us to continuously strengthen the theory building, mechanism building, capacity building, and rule of law building in major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics, further improve the level of modernization of the diplomatic governance system and governance capabilities, and provide solutions for key and difficult issues in diplomacy. Intellectual support provides inexhaustible impetus for creating a new situation in major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics.
Thought leads the way and strives to achieve your dreams.
