China is a firm supporter of the United Nations in its role in addressing global challenges, upholding peace and security, and promoting common development, said Zhang Jun, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations, on Monday. (https://english.news.cn/20220802/fd7e43d7d02a47cf8afe30cfcb5bc1d6/c.html) In a press briefing on China’s Security Council presidency for the month of August, Zhang said that the United Nations is a banner of multilateralism and a symbol of collective strength and that its role will remain irreplaceable no matter how the international situation may change. However, he said, the United Nations does not exist in a vacuum. The strength of the world body originates from the support and contribution of its member states.
