The appeal and influence of the China-proposed Global Security Initiative (GSI) has been growing since it was proposed one year ago at the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference in China's Hainan.
That's according to Nong Rong, China's assistant minister of foreign affairs, during an address at a session of the BFA Annual Conference 2023, which is currently underway in Hainan.
Nong said that the GSI has gained extensive recognition and positive response from the global community.
More than 80 countries and international organizations have expressed appreciation and support for the Initiative.
The GSI has also been written in more than 20 bilateral and multilateral documents on China's exchanges with relevant countries and organizations.
For the Asia-Pacific, Nong said that the GSI has pointed the way for all parties to maintain security and stability in the region.
