The General Debate of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is under way at UN headquarters in New York City, with climate change, COVID-19, and security dominating discussions during the annual gathering.
After pledging to strive to reach peak carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, China has taken another step in the pursuit of green development.
On September 22, Chinese President Xi Jinping addressed the UN General Assembly via video from Beijing. President Xi said China will increase its support for other developing countries in promoting green and low-carbon energy and will not build new coal-fired power projects abroad.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres welcomed the announcement. The UN chief also underscored that: “Accelerating the global phase out of coal is the single most important step to keep the 1.5 degrees Celsius goal of the Paris Agreement within reach.”
In his video speech, President Xi also discussed the fight against the pandemic, economic recovery, international relations, and global governance.
Permanent Representative of China to the UN, Zhang Jun, told media that President Xi’s speech shows China’s courage and sense of responsibility as a responsible major power.
