China, EU agree to promote multilateralism, back free trade
    2018-07-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINA and the European Union (EU) yesterday agreed to jointly work to safeguard the rules-based international order, promote multilateralism, and support free trade.

The agreement was reached during the 20th China-EU leaders’ meeting, which was co-chaired by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, European Council President Donald Tusk, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

China and the EU, as two major forces and economies of the world, have the joint responsibility to safeguard the rules-based international order, advocate multilateralism, support free trade, and promote world peace, stability, and development in the current international situation, a press release from the meeting said.

In a joint communique the two sides reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris climate change pact and called other signatories to do the same, saying action against rising global temperatures had become more important than ever.

Following U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision last year to withdraw his country from the agreement, China and the European Union have emerged as the biggest champions of the 2015 accord, which aims to keep global temperature increases to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius.

The two sides said they remained committed to creating a mechanism to transfer US$100 billion a year from richer to poorer nations to help them adapt to climate change. The fund has been a major bone of contention for the United States. (SD-Agencies)
