COVID-19 has raised a question about global cooperation – how do countries work together, even with unsolved disputes or disagreements?
Globalization linked people around the world more closely than ever, but challenges require countries to work together for effective solutions.
Chinese President Xi Jinping said, “All countries need to demonstrate a strong commitment to their global responsibilities in the face of daunting global challenges. Indeed, they need to determine a decisive direction for humanity at this juncture.”
China has proposed five major suggestions to improve the global governance system: follow the principles of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits; joint efforts by all countries to cope with non-traditional security threats must be coped with by all; reinforce coordination and cooperation among major countries; maintain the international law order; and strengthen the role of the UN.
