Original title: The United Nations strongly supports the "Belt and Road" initiative
The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation will begin in Beijing next month, and the Belt and Road Initiative is becoming a key word for global attention. Just a few days ago, the United Nations High-level Belt and Road Seminar was held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. Participating UN officials, economists and diplomats from various countries had a lively discussion about China's "Belt and Road" initiative, and looked forward to this initiative bringing more opportunities to the sustainable development of the world.
In fact, the intersection of the “Belt and Road” with the United Nations does not stop at such seminars. For more than three years since China proposed the "Belt and Road" initiative, this initiative has not only won the understanding and positive response of more and more countries, but also received the full support of the United Nations.
So far, relevant resolutions or documents of United Nations agencies, including the Security Council, have included or reflected the content of the “Belt and Road” more than once.
In April 2016, China and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) signed a letter of intent, and the two parties will jointly plan specific actions to promote connectivity and the “Belt and Road” and promote policy matching and pragmatic cooperation among the countries along the route.
In September 2016, China and the United Nations Development Programme signed a memorandum of understanding on jointly promoting the construction of the “Belt and Road” initiative. This is the first memorandum of understanding signed by the Chinese government and international organizations to jointly build the “Belt and Road” initiative. It is also a major innovation for international organizations to participate in the construction of the “Belt and Road” initiative.
In November 2016, the UN General Assembly first included China ’s “Belt and Road” initiative in the resolution, which was unanimously approved by 193 Member States.
In March this year, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2344 on Afghanistan, which for the first time incorporated the concept of "building a community of shared future for mankind," calling on the international community to strengthen regional economic cooperation through the construction of the "Belt and Road" initiative, urging all parties to "Belt and Road" "Construction provides a safe and secure environment, strengthens development policy and strategic alignment, and promotes pragmatic cooperation in interconnection.
Within the United Nations, not only are various organizations highly recognized in various forms and are willing to work together to build the “Belt and Road”, many officials have also spoke highly of this initiative.
The United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development, Lenny Montiel, said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency that the "Belt and Road" initiative is based on the concept of global common prosperity and will definitely promote peace and security in the three continents of Asia, Africa and Europe and other regions. Sustainable development.
Analysts believe that the United Nations ’strong support for the“ Belt and Road ”initiative fully demonstrates that the“ Belt and Road ”is by far the most popular international public product and the platform for international cooperation with the best prospects.
The most important reason for the "Belt and Road" to "sing" the UN stage is that this initiative is highly consistent with the current work and future direction of the UN, and with the common interests of UN member states.
Experts point out that as countries and regions along the “Belt and Road” region cover more than 60% of the world ’s population and more than one-third of the world ’s GDP and trade, China ’s initiative can not only achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development proposed by the United Nations Docking will also provide tremendous impetus for advancing this agenda.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an outcome document jointly reached by 193 Member States of the United Nations in September 2015. It includes 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific goals, with the focus on: eradicating poverty and hunger and promoting economic growth; Promote social progress in an all-round way, maintain fairness and justice; strengthen the construction of ecological civilization, and promote sustainable development. Countries are committed to working towards the full implementation of the agenda by 2030.
China's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Liu Jieyi said that the “Belt and Road” initiative has the same purpose, the same ideas, and the same path as the Sustainable Development Goals. Promoting the “Belt and Road” initiative and early harvest has made important contributions to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Montiel said that the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is by far the most ambitious and transformative development plan, and the "Belt and Road" initiative is an "important enabler and catalyst" for achieving the UN's sustainable development goals.
He said that the “Belt and Road” initiative will greatly promote the infrastructure development, investment and trade flows of participating countries, and the investment and economic growth it will drive “will create thousands of decent jobs and make thousands more Get rid of poverty ".
The "Belt and Road" seminar held at United Nations Headquarters was sponsored by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The agency has specifically set up capacity development projects to help countries along the “Belt and Road” analyze and formulate policies to accelerate the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Experts pointed out that many United Nations agencies are interested in docking with China's "Belt and Road", and cooperation between the two sides is promising.
United Nations ESCAP Executive Secretary Shamshad Akhtar said the agency's letter of intent on the "Belt and Road" represents its members' firm confidence and political commitment to fulfilling the "Belt and Road" cooperation. The “Belt and Road” is a historic opportunity to promote infrastructure and software construction in the Asia-Pacific region. The institution can work with China to expand and expand cooperation space under the “Belt and Road” framework.
UNDP Administrator Helen Clark said that the “Belt and Road” initiative demonstrates China's willingness to cooperate with other countries and share its prosperity. The United Nations Development Programme hopes to contribute to the human development of the “Belt and Road” so that people along the route can enjoy the results of the “Belt and Road”.
Montiel believes that the participation of the United Nations and its agencies in the construction of the “Belt and Road” is very important. They can make full use of their development experience in countries along the route to support projects in these countries.
He pointed out that the United Nations can serve as a bridge between the Belt and Road and other sustainable development projects in order to maximize the use of synergies and reduce duplication of projects and erroneous investment in financial resources. China can take the initiative to contact relevant UN agencies to promote dialogue among the countries along the “Belt and Road”.
"I firmly believe that other United Nations agencies will also volunteer to provide technical and analytical support to help the concept and plan of the" Belt and Road "initiative and promote the sustainable development of nearly two-thirds of the human population."
