In the UN, our vote always belonged to the developing countries and to the parties speaking for justice. He remarked that Chairman Mao Zedong once said it was our fellow developing countries that carry the People’s Republic of China into the United Nations. Since the restoration of the lawful seat of the People Republic of China (PRC) in the UN over the past 50 years, we also uphold the same spirit and firmly support the developing countries in fighting for their sovereignty, security and developing interest and firmly stand for developing countries for justice. The spokesperson said that over the past 50 years, China stood and supported each other in the fight against imperialism, colonization, the fight for national independence and liberation with developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America and helped developing countries in expanding cooperation in socio economic development and people welfare. China also stood together in improving global governance and improving the representation and say of developing countries, he added. He said that over the past 50 years, the UN has welcomed another 65 countries and most majority are developing countries. We went from the audience seats to a close to the center of the stage and have taken initiative and helped to bring democracy to international relations and equitable economic globalization. President Xi Jinping said that no matter how far we go we’ll never forget where we come from. China will always be a reliable friend and sincere partner of developing countries, he added.
