TEHRAN, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- With ever more challenging global issues, the international community should enhance the role of the United Nations (UN), promote cooperation and pay special attention to developing countries' concerns so as to achieve better global governance, China's Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs Ma Zhaoxu said here on Friday.
The Chinese official made the remarks in his speech at the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit held in Iran's capital of Tehran.
The world is undergoing dramatic changes, Ma noted, adding that the international community wants peace, not war; wants cooperation, not conflict; and wants progress, not retrogression.
Over years, the NAM has always been improving itself and has always been an important force representing developing countries to promote peace and development in the world, Ma said.
