World faces 'daunting' challenges: China

Yang Jiechi

The international community has been urged by the Foreign Minister of China to work hard to maintain stability in the face of growing global challenges.

Yang Jiechi told the General Assembly on Monday that promoting what he described as 'common development' has become a more important and pressing task than ever before.

The Chinese Foreign Minister warned that global development is now at a critical juncture.

"Global recovery remains fragile, international financial markets are volatile and the pursuit of sustainable development faces daunting challenges. The world economy therefore has to meet the crucial test of maintaining growth. Some countries in West Asia and North Africa are in continual political turmoil. Terrorist threats are spreading and global challenges are growing. The international community faces a critical test of maintaining stability."
