China Backs Putin’s Proposal for Summit of Permanent Members of UNSC

BEIJING – China has expressed support for a proposal by Russian President Vladimir Putin to host a summit among the leaders of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to resolve global challenges.
Speaking to world leaders at an event marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on Thursday, Putin said that the countries that created a new world order after World War II should cooperate to solve today’s problems and try to seek collective responses to modern challenges and threats.
“The founding countries of the United Nations, the five states that have a special responsibility for saving civilization, can and should be an example,” he said in Jerusalem.
Leaders from Russia, China, the United States, France and Britain could meet “anywhere in the world,” he said, adding that Russia was ” ready for such a serious conversation.”
Putin said his proposal had received a “positive reaction”.
Moscow offered the summit to “several of our colleagues and, if I understand correctly, saw a positive reaction,” he said.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters on Friday that Beijing supports the Russian proposal and will maintain communication and coordination with Russia and other permanent members of the UNSC on the question.
Hua said that the UNSC is at the heart of the international collective security mechanism and that its five permanent members have a special responsibility in the maintenance of international peace and security.
The current international situation has experienced a marked increase in instability and uncertainty, problems of regional hotspots have appeared one after the other and multilateralism and the role of the United Nations are facing serious challenges.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the victory of the anti-fascist war and the founding of the United Nations, she noted.
It is important that the five countries maintain in-depth communication on the international situation and problems and strengthen coordination and cooperation to safeguard multilateralism and the post-war international order, she said.
