The Chinese government hopes that the UN Security Council’s members will confirm their commitment to multilateralism and an international law-based world order, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin told a news briefing on Friday, Eurasia Diary reports citing Tass. 

"We hope that all the participants will use this meeting as an opportunity to confirm their commitment to multilateralism and the goals and principles of the UN Charter, strengthen the international system where the United Nations plays the key role, and support an international law-based world order and regional peace and security," Wang said.
He stressed that the pandemic remained a major challenge to the whole world, which triggered a major recession in the world economy. The spokesman also noted that climate change and food security problems were getting worse.
"In the meantime, the policy of creating blocs undermines the authority and effectiveness of multilateral institutions," Wang said.

The UN Security Council on Friday will hold a video conference in New York entitled Upholding Multilateralism and UN-Centered International Relations. Foreign Minister, State Council member Wang Yi, will represent China. That said, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will participate in the conference as well.
