BRICS, 17 Feb 2020
24 Jan 2020 – Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying’s Remarks on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Proposal to Hold a Meeting of the Heads of State of the Five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council
Q: On January 23, when attending the Fifth World Holocaust Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia proposed to hold a meeting of the heads of state of the five permanent members (P5) of the UN Security Council. What is China’s position?
A: The UN Security Council is the core of the international collective security mechanism and the five permanent members of the Security Council bear special responsibility for maintaining international peace and security. With rising instability and uncertainty in the international landscape and emerging regional hotspot issues, multilateralism and the role of the UN face severe challenges. As this year marks the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War and the founding of the UN, in-depth communication and enhanced coordination and cooperation between the P5 on the international situation and major international issues are of great significance to maintaining multilateralism and the post-war international order, the authority of the UN and the Security Council, and international and regional peace and stability. China supports Russia’s proposal to hold the P5 summit and stands ready to stay in communication and coordination with Russia and other permanent members of the Security Council.
