China to stay committed to development, not to threaten others: Chinese diplomat
Date:2018-06-07  Source:Xinhua

A senior Chinese diplomat on Tuesday highlighted that a better China will mean a better world, and China will stay as determined as ever to build world peace, contribute to global prosperity, and uphold the international order.

Speaking at a workshop, Yu Jianhua, head of the Chinese Mission to the UN at Geneva, said that no matter how much progress China makes in development, China will not threaten anyone else, attempt to overturn the existing international system, or seek spheres of influence.

"A stronger China will mean greater chances for peace," Yu said, explaining that although much progress has been made in recent years, China's top priority remains development.

In 2017, he said, China's per capita GDP was only 8,643 U.S. dollars, trailing behind 70 countries. More than 30 million Chinese are living in poverty in rural areas. China's urbanization rate is only 57 percent, much lower than the 70 percent of developed countries.

"China will stay committed to development and will not threaten others or seek hegemony and expansion," the diplomat told the workshop, sponsored by the Chinese Mission to mark the issuing of the English edition of second volume of Chinese President Xi Jinping's book on governance.
