The”Paris Agreement” is the result of multilateralism. It has consolidated multilateral consensus and strengthened the implementation of the”United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.” It is an important legal compliance for international cooperation to address climate change after 2020. China is willing to work with the United States and the international community to cope with common challenges, jointly promote the full and effective implementation of the Paris Agreement, and jointly build a win-win, fair and reasonable climate governance system to help the global low-carbon transition and post-epidemic green recovery.
With regard to the decision of the United States to withdraw from the World Health Organization, the World Health Organization is a professional organization in the field of international health, which plays an important leadership and coordination role in international anti-epidemic cooperation. China has always advocated that all countries should actively support the work of the WHO and jointly safeguard international public health security. Especially in the current severe situation where the new crown pneumonia epidemic is still raging globally, we welcome the return of the United States to the World Health Organization and are willing to strengthen cooperation with the United States and other countries.
