The Diplomatic Insight - - News -

66of the Peo­ple’s Re­pub­lic of China wit­nessed multi-di­men­sional ini­tia­tive at do­mes­tic, re­gional and global lev­els. Th­ese in­clude war against cor­rup­tion pri­mar­ily in main­land China, re­vival of an­cient Silk route in 21stcen­tury i.e. One Belt One Road ( OBOR), Asian In­fras­truc­ture In­vest­ment Bank (AIIB) and most re­cent over­whelm­ing con­tri­bu­tion in the United Na­tions global in­sti­tu­tion cel­e­brated its 70th an­niver­sary. This piece of writ­ing ap­pear­ance in the United Na­tions in par­tic­u­lar and his over­all pol­icy in gen­eral. Land and peo­ple of China sus­tained in­jus­tice of the world com­mu­nity for more than two decades in af­ter­math of the fall of Na­tion­al­ist Kuom­intang when it be­came prey to Com­mu­nist suc­cess. The largest pop­u­la­tion of the world was de­lib­er­ately de­prived of le­git­i­mate right of recog­ni­tion in the United Na­tion. This left main­land China with sev­eral op­tions, either to sur­ren­der, sub­ju­gate the right­ful claim and de­nounce the United Na­tions or to pur­sue the case with pa­tience and devo­tion. The later was opted as pol­icy choice af­ter two decades’ long strug­gle, China man­aged to re­store its right­ful place in the United Na­tions. The Story did not end here but fol­lowed sev­eral ups and downs; sub­se­quently China is lead­ing the United Na­tions in Gen­eral As­sem­bly. Pres­i­dent Xi Spoke to the United Na­tions Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Sum­mit and urged sev­eral com­mit­ments and lu­cra­tive pledges. Th­ese in­cludes$2 bil­lion to achieve post 2015 de­vel­op­ment goals and $12 bil­lion in­vest­ment in least de­vel­oped states, in or­der to bridge the gap be­tween the pol­icy and ex­e­cu­tion of de­vel­op­ment goals. Mr. Xi ex­tended an­other gen­er­ous of­fer by writ­ing off in­ter­gov­ern­men­tal in­ter­est free loans to the least de­vel­oped coun­tries and small is­land na­tions, thus not a ver­bal but prac­ti­cal com­mit­ment made by China to achieve new de­vel­op­ment goals. It’s an un­de­ni­able fact of the preva­lent sit­u­a­tion that the lim­ited suc­cess of Mil­len­nium De­vel­op­ment Goals owes great deal to Chi­nese ef­fort. China set the prece­dent for the Global South to meet the chal­lenge of poverty. The United Na­tions Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Mr. Ban Ki-moon adored China as in­dis­pens­able part­ner for the United Na­tions Agenda of the world’s Peace and De­vel­op­ment. At the same time, the United Na­tions is look­ing for a strong and more de­ter­mined role of China for the women en­dorse­ment, em­pow­er­ment and Gen­der Equal­ity in the world. The con­fer­ence on Gen­der Equal­ity and Women’s Em­pow­er­ment or, in­for­mally, Bei­jing+20, is co- or­ga­nized by U. N.
