NEW DELHI, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- China, Russia and India should strengthen their strategic communication and coordination to stabilize the international situation and bring more certainty to the world, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has said.

As influential major countries and emerging economies in the world, the three nations will shoulder their due responsibility to bring certainty and "positive energy" to regional and world peace and prosperity, Wang told a press conference on Monday after the 15th trilateral meeting of the foreign ministers from China, Russia and India.

Wang said that during the meeting he briefed his Russian and Indian counterparts on the significance of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and China's foreign policies in the new era.

The Chinese top diplomat stressed that China will seek its national rejuvenation through peaceful development, and is willing to jointly build a new type of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation in order to build a community of shared future for humanity with lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness and inclusiveness as well as a clean and beautiful world.

Wang said he had in-depth discussions with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on a wide range of global and regional issues of common concern and reached consensus on political, economic and security issues.

The three ministers believed that various crises in the world should be resolved in accordance with the international law and the principles enshrined in the UN Charter, without resorting to force and through dialogue and consultation between countries concerned.

They oppose hegemonism, power politics and sphere of influence in international relations, Wang said, adding that the three ministers agree to push forward the democratization of international relations.

They also vowed to enhance global and regional cooperation in combating the "three evil forces" of terrorism, separatism and extremism.

The three countries pledged to strive for an open world economy for innovative, interconnected, inclusive and sustainable development, as well as for economic globalization characterized by openness, inclusiveness, universal benefit, balance and win-win results, Wang said.

They agreed to promote reform of global economic governance to increase the representation and say of emerging economies and developing countries.

The three nations also decided to boost the connectivity on the Eurasian continent under the principle of policy consultation, infrastructure connectivity, trade promotion, financial cooperation and people-to-people exchanges for regional integration, so as to promote regional economy integration.

Wang said the three ministers reached consensus on addressing climate change, advancing human rights protection and strengthening cooperation at the platform of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and BRICS summit, adding that they also exchanged views on the hot issues such as Afghanistan and the Middle East situation among others.
