Co­op­er­a­tion nec­es­sary for suc­cess, lead­ers say

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - Cpc In Dialogue - By ZHANG YUNBI zhangyunbi@chi­

Ma­jor global chal­lenges such as ter­ror­ism and cli­mate change al­low no coun­try to sac­ri­fice oth­ers for its own self-in­ter­ests, and po­lit­i­cal par­ties should join hands in ef­forts to tackle the thorny is­sues, po­lit­i­cal lead­ers say.

These rec­om­men­da­tions were made by speak­ers ad­dress­ing the sec­ond ple­nary ses­sion and clos­ing ses­sion of the Com­mu­nist Party of China in Di­a­logue with World Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties High-Level Meet­ing in Bei­jing on Sunday.

Ma­rina Sereni, vice-pres­i­dent of Italy’s Cham­ber of Deputies and a mem­ber of the lead­er­ship of the Demo­cratic Party of Italy, said new threats re­quire “strong co­op­er­a­tion and po­lit­i­cal di­a­logue”.

“Fight­ing cli­mate change and poverty … are tasks that no coun­try can face and beat alone,” she said.

Nafie Ali Nafie, sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the Coun­cil of African Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties, said po­lit­i­cal par­ties have great un­der­stand­ing of the ac­tual sit­u­a­tion at the lo­cal grass­roots level, they know best the top con­cerns of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and their op­er­a­tions greatly sup­ple­ment gov­ern­ment ef­forts.

Po­lit­i­cal par­ties should boost the res­o­lu­tion of is­sues through ad­vanc­ing leg­isla­tive cam­paigns in their re­spec­tive coun­tries, and of­fer so­lu­tions that meet the ex­pec­ta­tions of peo­ple from all walks of life, he said.

Olga Epi­fanova, deputy chair­woman of Rus­sia’s State Duma, warned that ter­ror­ism is like a plague in the 21st cen­tury and some coun­tries have failed to trans­late into ac­tions their com­mit­ment to fight­ing ter­ror­ism.

Epi­fanova raised the refugee is­sue in Europe and noted that some Euro­pean coun­tries have failed to ac­cept refugees as re­quired by the Euro­pean Union.

Mo­hammed Mous­saoudja, vi­cepres­i­dent of Al­ge­ria’s Peo­ple’s Na­tional As­sem­bly and leader of the Na­tional Lib­er­a­tion Front, said that as Africa Union’s anti-ter­ror cen­ter is lo­cated in his coun­try, the fight UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil, China is a “ma­jor player” on the global stage in this re­gard, he added.

Jiko Fatafehi Lu­veni, leader of the Fiji First Party and speaker of Par­lia­ment of the Repub­lic of Fiji, called for con­certed global ef­forts in tak­ing on cli­mate change as a clean en­vi­ron­ment is crit­i­cal to the is­land na­tion in the Pa­cific Ocean.

The Fi­jian speaker said China has pushed for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the agree­ment ap­proved at the Cli­mate Change Paris Con­fer­ence, help­ing off­set the im­pact of cli­mate change on the world.

Choo Mi-ae, head of the rul­ing Min­joo Party of the Repub­lic of Korea, said no thought could be sig­nif­i­cant if it is not put into prac­tice, and a res­o­lute fight should be made by all coun­tries against chal­lenges in­clud­ing eco­log­i­cal im­bal­ance and ter­ror­ism.

Choo called on at­tend­ing par­ties and del­e­gates to build the com­mu­nity with a shared fu­ture and re­in­force unity within and op­er­a­tions by po­lit­i­cal par­ties.
