China, Rus­sia and In­dia agreed on Fri­day to strengthen co­or­di­na­tion, unite con­sen­sus and en­hance co­op­er­a­tion to jointly pro­mote world peace, sta­bil­ity and de­vel­op­ment.

Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping, his Rus­sian coun­ter­part Vladimir Putin and In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi reached the agree­ment af­ter an in­for­mal meet­ing in Buenos Aires on the side­lines of the G20 Lead­ers’ Sum­mit.

Ad­dress­ing the meet­ing, Xi said the three coun­tries’ com­mon de­vel­op­ment and close co­op­er­a­tion will con­sti­tute an in­creas­ingly im­por­tant force of sta­bil­ity and cer­tainty against the back­drop of a world un­der­go­ing pro­found changes.

Not­ing that the three na­tions are ma­jor in­flu­en­tial pow­ers and im­por­tant strate­gic part­ners with each other, he said they share broad com­mon in­ter­ests and sim­i­lar de­vel­op­ment goals and to­gether shoul­der a sig­nif­i­cant re­spon­si­bil­ity for the fu­ture of the re­gion and the world.

In re­cent years, China, Rus­sia and In­dia have de­vel­oped tri­lat­eral di­a­logues and part­ner­ships based on mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and trust, and have made great head­way, Xi said.

In the face of new chal­lenges, the three na­tions should fur­ther ad­vance their tri­lat­eral part­ner­ship, up­hold the new type of in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions fea­tur­ing win-win co­op­er­a­tion, con­sol­i­date po­lit­i­cal trust and forge part­ner­ships in­stead of al­liances, Xi said.

He said they should jointly pro­mote trade lib­er­al­iza­tion and fa­cil­i­ta­tion, en­hance an open global econ­omy, res­o­lutely op­pose uni­lat­er­al­ism and pro­tec­tion­ism and up­hold a mul­ti­lat­eral trade sys­tem, and safe­guard the com­mon in­ter­ests of emerg­ing mar­kets and de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

Xi also called on the coun­tries to strengthen re­gional and in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion in coun­tert­er­ror­ism, pro­mote po­lit­i­cal res­o­lu­tion of hot is­sues and play a big­ger role in safe­guard­ing re­gional and in­ter­na­tional peace and se­cu­rity.

Putin said that un­der the cur­rent in­ter­na­tional sit­u­a­tion, the tri­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion con­forms to the in­ter­ests of the three na­tions and is of pos­i­tive sig­nif­i­cance to the world as well.

He said that to pro­mote world peace and sta­bil­ity the three coun­tries should re­main com­mit­ted to an in­ter­na­tional sys­tem that is fairer and more eq­ui­table.

Modi said un­cer­tainty is growing in the in­ter­na­tional arena with the rise of uni­lat­er­al­ism. The three coun­tries should work to­gether to deal with the chal­lenges and safe­guard mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism as well as the mul­ti­lat­eral trad­ing sys­tem.
