BEIJING, June 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday called on countries to promote win-win cooperation, and reject the obsolete notion of zero-sum game or winner taking all.

"Cooperation generates strength while isolation only leads to weakness," Xi told a 700-strong audience. "Win-win cooperation should be the basis policy goal of all countries in handling international affairs."

It is a universal principle that applies to not only the economic field, but political, security, cultural and other areas as well, he said.

Countries should align their own interests with those of other countries and expand areas of converging interests, he said, adding that instead of undercutting each other's efforts, countries should reinforce each other's endeavor and make greater common progress.

"We should champion a new vision of win-win outcomes for all and reject the obsolete notion of zero-sum game or winner taking all. Countries should respect others' interests while pursuing their own and advance common interests of all," he said.

He called on countries to help each other out in times of difficulty and assume both rights and responsibilities, and work together to address growing global issues such as climate change, energy and resources security, cyber security and major natural disasters, in a common endeavor to protect out planet which is so crucial to our survival.

Myanmar President U Thein Sein and Indian Vice President Mohammad Hamid Ansari participated in the commemoration and delivered speeches.

Also present at the commemoration were Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, top legislator Zhang Dejiang and top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng.

In 1954, leaders of China, India and Myanmar initiated the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, which stand for mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other's internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence.
