China's President Hu Jintao is to elaborate the country's stance on various current issues, ranging from climate change and nuclear disarmament to economic recovery and trade protectionism to the UN and G20 summits next week.

"Hu will call for stronger international efforts on climate change and introduce new measures that China is taking," China's Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei said at a press briefing Tuesday, Sept. 15.

The briefing outlined Hu's attendance at the summits next week.

Invited by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Hu will address the opening session of a UN climate change summit on Sept. 22.

"He will fully elaborate China's stance and proposals on climate change and what China is doing about it," He said.

Hu will also deliver a speech at the 64th annual general debate of the UN General Assembly, outlining China's ideas about how to safeguard world peace, boost common development, promote mutual benefit and seeking harmonious co-existence.

Talking about Hu's attendance at the G20 financial summit in Pittsburgh, He said China expects the summit to achieve positive results in macro-economic policy coordination, reform of international financial organization, development and measures against protectionism.

Hu would further make a speech at the nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament summit of the UN Security Council, He said.

The president will elaborate China's idea on realizing common security through a win-win approach to mutual benefits. Hu will put forward China's propositions on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, peaceful use of nuclear power, nuclear security and other issues concerning the international community.

"The summit, which is being specially convened to discuss nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, will be the first of its kind in the history of the UN Security Council," He said.

The summit is of great significance, He said, expressing the wish it will further gauge the consensus of the international community and explore effective ways in the process of advancing nuclear non-proliferation, disarmament and peaceful use of nuclear power.
