联合国秘书长敦促中国发挥更大的全球作用 UN Chief Urges China To Play Greater Global Role

02 July, 2008

联合国秘书长潘基文敦促中国在应对例如粮食短缺等全球挑战方面发挥更大作用。潘基文星期三在北京对中国国家主席胡锦涛说,联合国需要中国的大力参与、合作以及夥伴关系。胡锦涛承诺支持潘基文发起的改革联合国的行动,并为联合国在四川致命大地震后提供救援对潘基文表示感谢。

中国是联合国五个拥有否决权的常任理事国之一,因此中国的支持对改革联合国机构的努力至关重要。潘基文星期二从日本抵达北京。他在日本讨论了北韩最近提交其核项目清单的问题。

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged China to take a greater role in dealing with global challenges such as food shortages. Mr. Ban told Chinese President Hu Jintao today (Wednesday) in Beijing that the United Nations needs strong participation, cooperation and partnership with China. Mr. Hu pledged to support Mr. Ban in his campaign to reform the world organization and thanked him for U.N. relief efforts following the deadly earthquake in China Sichuan province.

China is one of five veto-wielding permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and its support is crucial in efforts to reform U.N. institutions. Mr. Ban's arrived to Beijing on Tuesday from Japan where he discussed North Korea's recent declaration of its nuclear programs.
