BEIJING, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has paid visits to more than 50 countries and hosted hundreds of visits from foreign leaders since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012.
He has also hosted or attended a series of international summits and activities.
To build a global network of friendship, China has established partnerships with about 100 countries and international organizations.
In October 2013, Xi highlighted the four-point principle of "amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness" in developing neighborhood diplomacy. While safeguarding its sovereignty, security and development interests, China has strengthened friendly cooperation with its neighbors.
China has also actively participated in regional cooperation mechanisms including the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO); ASEAN-China dialogue; ASEAN-China, Japan and Republic of Korea (ROK) (10+3) dialogue; East Asia Summit; China-Japan-ROK cooperation and Lancang-Mekong Cooperation.
Xi proposed the principles of non-confrontation, no conflict, mutual respect and win-win cooperation in China-U.S. ties, which have remained stable in the transition from the Obama administration to Trump's.
Rounds of in-depth talks between Xi and his U.S. counterparts, including the meeting in Mar-a-Lago, have established a new model of interaction between top leaders, which are of key importance in stabilizing relations.
In the past five years, Xi has visited Russia six times, bringing the number of meetings between the heads of state to more than 20.
China and Russia also made breakthroughs in cooperation on natural gas pipelines, high-speed railways, aerospace and other major projects, in addition to coordination in multilateral mechanisms.
The strategic coordination between China and Russia has contributed to regional stability and world peace.
During Xi's historic visit to the EU headquarters in 2014, China and EU vowed to deepen their partnership for peace, growth, reform and civilization.
China has strengthened friendship and cooperation with developing countries. In 2015, China rolled out 10 major plans to boost cooperation with Africa in areas ranging from industrialization to infrastructure services, with 60 billion U.S. dollars of funding support.
Moreover, China and Latin America have strived for win-win cooperation and common development under the principles of mutual trust, mutual benefit and mutual learning.
To ease the tension on the Korean Peninsula, China advocates a "double suspension" approach, which requires the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale U.S.-Republic of Korea military exercises.
The country has also worked to bring the South China Sea issue back to the negotiating table.
During a series of summits marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations in 2015, President Xi announced that China will establish a 10-year, 1-billion-U.S. dollar China-UN peace and development fund to support the UN's work, as well as a fund, with initial contribution of 2 billion dollars, to support South-South cooperation and assist developing countries in implementing their post-2015 development agenda.
To cope with climate change, China has been vigorous and firm in reaching the Paris Agreement and honoring its commitments under the agreement.
President Xi has expounded the vision of a "community of shared future" on various occasions during major domestic and international events over the past five years. In March this year, the concept was incorporated into a UN Security Council resolution for the first time.
In 2013, Xi proposed building the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, also known as the Belt and Road Initiative. Over 100 countries and international organizations have expressed support for or participated in the initiative, and investment from the Silk Road Fund has amounted to more than 4 billion dollars.
At the G20 Hangzhou summit in 2016, Xi emphasized the concepts of equality, openness, cooperation and sharing in global economic governance. Against the backdrop of a deglobalization trend and a sluggish world economy, China proposed the idea of building an innovative, open, interconnected and inclusive world economy.
Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, measures, proposals and concepts put forward by China have injected vigor into the reform and optimization of global governance. China proposed establishing the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the BRICS New Development Bank. Last year, the IMF included the Chinese currency, the renminbi (RMB), into the SDR basket.
