On April 20, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Xie Feng attended the opening ceremony of the Harvard Kennedy School China Conference 2024 and delivered a speech entitled "Chinese Modernization, A Community with a Shared Future for Mankind, and China-US Relations", emphasizing that in a turbulent world, China's choice is to pursue Chinese modernization at home, and forge a community with a shared future for mankind internationally. It is hoped that the US side will work with China in the same direction and find a right way to get along in the new era, based on the principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation.

Ambassador Xie pointed out that a lot has changed in the world around us, and we are now living in a turbulent time. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is again wreaking havoc, while the crisis in Ukraine stays unabated. It seems that everywhere we look, we see powder kegs that can explode anytime. The global economic recovery remains sluggish. Energy, food and debt crises keep emerging. More than 100 million people are displaced, and 700 million are grappling with hunger. Non-traditional security challenges such as artificial intelligence, climate change and biosecurity are on the rise. Worries grow that we may find ourselves in another "Oppenheimer moment", and the very survival of human civilization is at stake.

Ambassador Xie said that the world is again at a crossroads. All countries are in the same boat. Amidst the raging torrents, we need to pull together, not pull apart. China's choice is clear and firm: At home, we will focus on achieving Chinese modernization; internationally, we will forge a community with a shared future for mankind.

A developing China will keep making contribution to building a world of lasting peace. A China where everyone benefits from development will keep creating opportunities for building a world of common prosperity. A China making constant progress will keep serving as a bridge for building an open and inclusive world. A green China will keep injecting momentum into building a clean and beautiful world. And a peaceful China will keep fulfilling its responsibilities for building a world of universal security.

Ambassador Xie stressed that for both pursuing Chinese modernization and building a community with a shared future for mankind, a peaceful international environment is necessary, and a stable China-US relationship is vital. At present, we are facing grave challenges in China-US relations. Whether the younger generation can continue to enjoy the eight-decade-long peace and development as their parents did largely depends on whether China and the United States can find a right way to get along in the new era. China is ready to make joint efforts with the US side, live up to our mission, show good faith and sincerity, and take concrete actions to implement the important consensus reached between our Presidents, so as to turn the "San Francisco vision" into reality, and steer the relationship forward along the track of sound, stable and sustainable development.
