se­cur­ing peace and sta­bil­ity on the penin­sula and re­solv­ing is­sues through di­a­logue and ne­go­ti­a­tion.

He urged all the par­ties in­volved to ex­er­cise re­straint, avoid provo­ca­tion, and pull the nu­clear is­sue back to a track of di­a­logue and ne­go­ti­a­tions at an early date.

The pres­i­dent said China is al­ways com­mit­ted to peace and sta­bil­ity in the South China Sea. While China will firmly safe­guard its sovereignty, rights and in­ter­ests, it is will­ing to peace­fully solve the dis­putes through friendly con­sul­ta­tion and di­a­logue with the coun­tries di­rectly in­volved, he said.

China will work with South­east Asian na­tions to make the South China Sea a re­gion of peace, friend­ship and co­op­er­a­tion, ac­cord­ing to Xi.

He said China stands for and will con­tinue to help pro­mote a peace­ful set­tle­ment of the Syr­ian is­sue and the Pales­tine-Is­rael is­sue through po­lit­i­cal ne­go­ti­a­tion.

China has played a con­struc­tive role in the sign­ing of a com­pre­hen­sive agree­ment on the Iran nu­clear is­sue and will con­tinue to press ahead the im­ple­men­ta­tion by joint ef­forts with all sides, Xi added.

He reaf­firmed China’s ad­her­ence to a peace­ful for­eign pol­icy, vow­ing “China will unswerv­ingly take a peace­ful path of devel­op­ment, main­tain an in­ter­na­tional order with the pur­poses and prin­ci­ples of the UN Char­ter at the core, pro­mote a new-type in­ter­na­tional re­la­tion­ship fea­tur­ing co­op­er­a­tion and rec­i­proc­ity, and be com­mit­ted to build­ing a com­mon destiny for mankind.”

The CICA was es­tab­lished in 1992 as a fo­rum for di­a­logue and con­sul­ta­tion on se­cu­rity is­sues in Asia. It has 26 mem­ber coun­tries and 12 coun­tries and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions as ob­servers.—INP
