BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday said China cannot develop without the rest of the world, nor can the world as a whole prosper without China.
Xi made the remarks in Beijing while addressing the 20th meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization via video link.
China is speeding up efforts to foster a new development pattern with domestic circulation as the mainstay while allowing domestic and international circulations to reinforce each other, and is building an open economy of higher standards, he said.
China will remain firmly committed to a mutually beneficial strategy of opening up, draw development impetus from the rest of the world, and deliver more benefits to the world with the country's development, Xi said, adding all parties are welcome to seize the opportunities brought by China's development and make active endeavors to deepen cooperation with China.
