Leaders of political parties and organizations from around the world have hailed the China-proposed Global Civilization Initiative, saying that it has great relevance, together with the Global Development Initiative and Global Security Initiative, to building up countries' consensus on addressing mounting global challenges in terms of peace, security, development and harmonious coexistence.
Their comments came as Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, unveiled the Global Civilization Initiative on Wednesday at the CPC in Dialogue with World Political Parties High-Level Meeting. The meeting's theme was "Path Towards Modernization: the Responsibility of Political Parties".
The initiative calls for respect for the diversity of civilizations, upholding the common values of humanity in pursuing peace, development, equity, justice, democracy and freedom, and promoting robust international people-to-people exchanges and cooperation.
