Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy responds to the common aspirations of all countries seeking development and progress, and has won widespread support and recognition from the international community, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Monday.

Such fresh ideas are in "sharp contrast" with outdated thinking pursuing zero-sum games and power politics, and they offer new theoretical support to the country's diplomacy, Wang said.

The Thought includes a series of ideas, proposals and initiatives covering topics such as security, civilization, ecology, human rights and justice.

As a result, a multidimensional, multilevel and wide-ranging global partnership network has taken shape, he said.

China's diplomatic missions have contributed to a greater opening-up of the country as well as mutually beneficial cooperation with other parts of the world while effectively championing national sovereignty, security and development interests, Wang said.
