The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has laid out an overarching plan for China's diplomacy in the new era. By calling for a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind, it has identified the goals of the major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics.
As an ancient Chinese philosopher said, "Law is the very foundation of governance." International law is an important underpinning for peace and common development in the world. Upholding and promoting the international rule of law is not only the bounden duty of responsible major countries but also an essential dimension of the above-mentioned goals of China's foreign policy. China has been an unwavering defender and promoter of the international rule of law. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics has been advanced on all fronts, leading to a further increase in China's international stature and its ability to influence and shape events. In this inspiring historical process, China has always been an advocate of international law, has firmly safeguarded its national interests, actively promoted democracy and the rule of law in international relations, and made outstanding contributions to world peace and development. Its has stayed committed to the international law system centered on the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, upheld the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence and other basic principles of international law and basic norms governing international relations, and advocated the equal and unified application of international law. China has taken a more constructive part in the setting of international rules, and worked with other countries to cope with such global challenges as the international financial crisis and climate change, thus becoming an important participant, contributor and a major player in global governance in these fields. China has initiated the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and is promoting the Belt and Road Initiative to boost global development. China has pursued peaceful solutions to international disputes and issues left from history and upheld justice on major international and regional issues, thus acting as a major force for greater fairness, justice and the rule of law.
In the new era, as China gets ever closer to the center of the world stage, we will promote a new type of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation, a community with a shared future for mankind, and an open, inclusive, clean and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security and common prosperity. To achieve all these, we must put greater emphasis on international law and firmly advance the international rule of law.
Compiled by the Department of Treaty and Law of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this book includes typical cases from recent years, covering such areas as China's efforts to promote the international rule of law, its participation in the negotiations on international rules, and its handling of prominent cases of international law. It is a vivid illustration of China's unique approach of respecting, applying and developing international law, which is consistent with the trend of the times. I hope that the publication of this book will help people from various circles better understand China's latest practice of international law, further promote the combination of theory and practice in the field of international law, and pool the strength of the international law academia to make greater contributions to national development and rejuvenation of China and the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
