Xi Jinping proposed the Global Security Initiative, proposing to contribute “Chinese wisdom and experience” to counteract the unprecedented changes taking place in the world.
When analyzing the five speeches made by the Chinese president, since 2013, at the Boao Forum for Asia, it appears that “security” has always been a key word.
At this year’s forum, security issues became clearer, due to the international situation – see Chinese leaders, noting “the outbreak of the crisis in Ukraine, due to the continued expansion of NATO,” until its formation by the United States. States, interest groups. They add that peace is becoming increasingly fragile, but also more precious to the world.
At this critical juncture, the Global Security Initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping provides a suitable solution to the situation. It embodies true pluralism and aims to ensure shared global security.
The proposal covers six points: “Commitment to a common, inclusive, collaborative and sustainable concept of security”; “obligation to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries and to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of other countries”; “adherence to the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations”; “Adherence to the importance of legitimate security concerns of all countries”; “Commitment to resolving differences and disputes between countries by peaceful means through dialogue and consultation”; Insist on maintaining security in both traditional and non-traditional areas in an integrated manner.
On the other hand, it clearly opposes unilateralism, the politics of blocs, the confrontation between the two camps, and the exploitation of unilateral sanctions.
For Asia, this security initiative is of great importance. Chinese leaders say that Asia has maintained global peace and stability over the past few decades, and achieved rapid economic growth, giving birth to the so-called “Asian miracle.” The people of Asia are well aware that without peace, there is no way to talk about development. But peace and stability do not fall from heaven, nor do they come from the charity of any country. China’s Global Security Initiative will help Asian countries better maintain peace, strengthen cooperation and strengthen solidarity, and take their own destiny into their own hands.
Since the Asian continent is an important driver of global economic growth, the world is better off when Asia is better off. According to the latest report published at the 2022 annual Boao Forum Asia Conference, the share of the Asian economy in the world economy has increased to 47.4% in 2021 according to purchasing power parity standards. Despite the impact of the pandemic, most Asian economies have remained largely stable, with economies such as China, India and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations) expected to continue to recover at a much higher pace. Faster than the global average, and that would still Asian economic growth at 4.8% in 2022.
In the future, with the progress of the regional global economic partnership agreement and the construction of the “One Belt, One Road” program, the importance of Asian economies will continue to increase, providing a continuous impetus to the global economic recovery.
“Climbing together when we find mountains, and cross together when we find trenches,” Asia has taken the path of common development in solidarity and cooperation. China will continue to work with Asian countries to make Asia “a pillar of peace and stability, a source of growth and a new ground for cooperation in the world.” Time will prove that no difficulty or detour can stop the wheel of history from moving forward.
