China backs multilateralism initiative

China is supporting a move by France and Germany to launch an Alliance for Multilateralism, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang  said on Monday, stressing that Beijing backs any effort to promote global cooperation.

“China has always been a firm defender, supporter and practitioner of multilateralism,” Lu said.

He added that the world needs multilateralism more than ever at a time of deepening globalization and multipolarization as well as increasing global challenges.

The German-French initiative, aimed at promoting global cooperation at a time of rising nationalism and isolationism, will be officially launched in September at the United Nations General Assembly.
