Axios noticed this week that China is the second largest contributor to the U. N. budget, accounting now for 12 percent of the company, the financing, up from 1 percent 20 years ago. In his speech before the U. N. General Assembly on Friday, the Chinese foreign Minister, Wang Yi, criticized unilateralism (probably a jab at the United States and called for a “new type of international relations.”


“As a founding member of the United Nations, we work to build with other countries, a new type of international relations and a community with a common future for humanity,” he said. “We will resolutely borne in the defence of the stature and the role of the United Nations, the international system of the U. N. and the international order anchored on international law.”

The United States has been trying to rally criticism of China’s human rights situation, of his action against the protests in Hong Kong to the treatment of minorities in mainland China. In the security Council, U.S. Ambassador Jonathan Cohen of China called on the treatment of the Uighurs in the Chinese province of Xinjiang.

“Men, women and children in Xinjiang were torture, forced labor, and invasive and arbitrary monitoring solely on the basis of their religion and ethnicity,” he said. “China, like all Nations, has to respond to actual terrorist threats, but the fight against terrorism as a pretext for the repression of the peaceful religious practices of Chinese Muslims, and a whole minority.”

The United States also warning of growing Chinese influence in the U. N. for some time. was Not only that, it is one of the five permanent members of the security Council, but it N. has also recently gradually more in U. institutions.

“There is no question of increasing that China, with all means, their influence in international organisations and on the wider international system,” an official of the State Department to Fox News in July, said. “China is a concerted push has more to do with advancing his own selfish interests, and authoritarian model than to demonstrate true leadership in accordance with the principles and freedoms of the U. N Charter.”

Chinese officials now run four of the 15 specialized U. N. agencies, after a Chinese official was elected as the next Director-General of the food and agriculture organization this summer. In addition, the U. N. and its officials are proving to be receptive and fertile ground for China’s big-government, internationalist approach embraces-in particular, as the United States, more and more, more nationalist policy and a sceptical attitude towards the U. N.

The New York Times reported this week on the painstaking efforts by Beijing to restrict criticism of its human rights record at the U. N., while it is also a stubborn insistence of his cooperation with U. N. bodies on issues such as multilateralism, environmental work and infrastructure.

In particular, the government has a welcome reception for the “belt-and-found path Initiative,” a massive trillion-dollar Beijing-led infrastructure project in Europe, Asia and Africa. US Vice-President Mike Pence in the last year, took aim at the project, say it is to saddle developing countries with loans that you cannot afford, and forces the low-quality ventures to you.

“You know that the United States offers a better option. We do not drown our clients in a sea of debt, we are not obliged to endanger their independence,” Pence said. “We do not provide a constricting belt or a one-way road. When you partner with us, we accompany you and we can prosper all.”

U. N. Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has, however, the project praised. In the speech at a ceremony of the “belt-and-Road-Forum for International cooperation”, convened by Xi in April, he welcomed China for “its Central role as a pillar of international cooperation and multilateralism.”

He went on to say that the belt and Road Initiative “provides a meaningful way to contribute to the creation of a fairer, more prosperous world for all, and reversing the negative effects of climate change.”

He targets a connection with the Beijing project, the U. N. s Sustainable development, and said that the U. N. is an important place”, where green principles can be reflected in the green act.”

“The United Nations country team stand ready to support the member States in the capacity and governance structure and the implementation of a harmonious and sustainable integration of the conveyor and road projects in their own economy and society in line with the national development plans, embodied in the “Agenda 2030″ for Sustainable development,” he said.

Jorge Chediek, Director of the U. N. Office for South-South cooperation (UNOSSC), was equally gushing. In an exclusive interview with he China welcomed the vision as a “new vision for the world.”

“The vision of China, based on the development of the infrastructure, the cultural connections, and spiritual connections, has promoted in connection with the work of the private sector, a new vision for the world, a new vision of prosperity, a new vision of sustainability, which is extremely compatible with the ideas and the best practices of the United Nations,” he said.

“The obligations of this great country is also a call for the world to do more-not only governments but also the private sector, civil society and science,” he said.


This week, a release of Guterres’ meeting with Wang Yi said that Guterres “thanked China for its contribution to the United Nations, including in the areas of peace, security and sustainable development and expression of enhanced cooperation in all areas of the work of the United Nations, peace and security, sustainable development, climate change and human rights.”

China is picking up on this message and promote it in his rhetoric. In his speech on Friday, Wang Yi complementarity” between the SDGs and the belt and Road Initiative, which called for”, and called it a “road to cooperation.”

“Let us in promoting the purposes and principles of the U. N. Charter, and together they form a community with a common future for humanity,” he said.
