In China

 

Two years ago, Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed a Global Security Initiative (GSI) while delivering a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference on April 21, 2022.

The GSI calls on countries to adapt to the profoundly changing international landscape in the spirit of solidarity, and address the complex and intertwined security challenges with a win-win mindset.

Why?

The world now has entered a new period of turbulence and change. ‍Global political security and economic security is confronted with an increasing level of uncertainty.

The deficits in peace, development, security and governance are growing, and the world is once again at a crossroads in history.

The issue of security bears on the well-being of people of all countries, the lofty cause of world peace and development, and the future of humanity.

The GSI aims to eliminate the root causes of international conflicts, improve global security governance, encourage joint international efforts to bring more stability and certainty to a volatile and changing era, and promote durable peace and development in the world.

“The number-one reality in today’s world is that all countries rise and fall together, and that the sure path to meeting the challenges is mutual assistance and win-win cooperation. More and more countries and peoples have come to realize that the future of humanity should be decided by all countries together, and that the future of the world should be built by all peoples together”

— Wang Yi, Chinese Foreign Minister

How?

The GSI stays committed to 6 core concepts and principles:

  1. the vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security;

  2. respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries;

  3. abiding by the purposes and principles of the UN Charter;

  4. taking the legitimate security concerns of all countries seriously;

  5. peacefully resolving differences and disputes between countries through dialogue and consultation;

  6. maintaining security in both traditional and non-traditional domains

20 priorities of cooperation, such as political settlement of hotspot issues, preventing nuclear war and avoiding arms races, information security, biosecurity, etc. are also outlined in GSI.
