UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi on Thursday called for efforts to bring about win-win progress through cooperation in the field of development, saying that efforts should be made to accelerate the development of developing countries and narrow the North-South gap.
Yang, while speaking at the General Debate of the 67th session of the UN General Assembly, said, "We should seek win-win progress through cooperation in the course of development. As economic globalization deepens, all countries have a high stake in each other's success."
"We should therefore enhance cooperation and expand common interests to achieve win-win and all-win progress," he said. "We should tap the potential for cooperation in all countries, expand and enrich cooperation, improve cooperation mechanisms and work together to make economic globalization balanced, inclusive and beneficial to all."
"We should accelerate the development of developing countries and narrow the North-South gap," he said. "We should enhance global cooperation on development to ensure that the benefits of development reach every one."
"Since the outbreak of the international financial crisis, China has, while maintaining its own robust growth, significantly increased contributions to international financial institutions, extended a helping hand to other developing countries and increased purchase of bonds of some developed countries," Yang said.
"All this has helped stabilize the international economic and financial situation and maintain economic and social development of relevant countries," he said.
