Ambassador WU Hailong Presents Credentials
2014/02/25
 On February 25th 2014, Ambassador Wu Hailong, the newly appointed Permanent Representative of the People's Republic of China to the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) and Other International Organizations in Switzerland, presented his credentials to Mr. Michael Møller, the Acting Director-General of the UNOG.

 

Ambassador Wu said nowadays as the development of globalization and multipolarization gains more momentum, multilateral diplomacy has been facing more complicated challenges and it is increasingly important to uphold the central and authoritative role of the United Nations (UN) in international affairs. Geneva has been an important center for negotiating and resolving multilateral issues such as human rights, humanitarian affairs, disarmament, public health, etc. Recently Geneva hosted negotiations on important international hotspots such as Syria crisis and Iran nuclear issues, making its role as a platform for multilateral diplomacy more prominent. China always advocates and practices multilateralism, upholding the central and authoritative role of the United Nations in international affairs. China will continue to support the work of UNOG and its Acting Director-General, further enhancing the friendly cooperation with the UNOG and the UN.

Acting Director-General Michael Møller welcomed Ambassador WU to assume his new post in Geneva and spoke highly of China's long-term contribution to the promotion of world peace and development, as well as its support for the role and status of the UN. He also expressed appreciations to the Chinese Mission for supporting the UNOG and himself, and hoped China would continue to play an important role in international affairs.
