Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged all countries to jointly build a community of shared destiny in cyberspace.

He made the remarks while addressing the opening ceremony of the 2nd World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, a resort city in Zhejiang Province.

CRI's Xie Cheng reports.


In his speech, President Xi put forward 5 proposals to achieve the goal, such as speeding up the construction of a global cyber infrastructure and promoting inter-connectivity, building an online platform for cultural exchanges and mutual learning, promoting innovative development of cyberspace for common prosperity, maintaining cyber security and promoting its orderly development, and enhancing equity and justice in cyberspace.

"We should push forward the formulation of international cyberspace rules accepted by all parties and establish international conventions against terrorism in cyberspace, improve the legal assistance mechanism to fight cyber crimes and jointly uphold peace and security in cyberspace. All countries should step up communication and exchange, improve dialogue and consultation mechanisms on cyberspace, and study and formulate global Internet governance rules, so that the global Internet governance system becomes more fair and reasonable."

In the meantime, President Xi also suggested an Internet governance system featuring a multilateral approach with multi-party participation, requiring all countries to adhere to 4 principles including respect for cyber sovereignty, maintenance of peace and security, promotion of openness and cooperation and cultivation of good order.

"We should respect the right of countries to participate in international cyberspace governance, their choice for the path of cyber development, as well as regulations and public policies. No country should pursue cyber hegemony, interfere in other nation's internal affairs, or engage in, connive at and support cyber activities undermining other countries' national security."

He also called on the international community to strictly crack down on all types of cybercrime, since cyberspace is not a place beyond the rule of law.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev attended the event. He welcomed President Xi's proposals, and also suggested coordination in internet policies in a way that benefits the global society.

"We should take measures within the platform of the International Telecommunication Union under the UN. We could entitle it with powers such as making international protocols and coordinating other organizations."

For his part, World Economic Forum's Chairman Klaus Schwab urged all countries to grasp the huge opportunities brought by the Internet.

"We want to make sure that the enormous potential of transformation could stimulate the economy, strengthen social inclusion and safeguard our environment. Everybody has to have access to the Internet to benefit from its enabling potential."

In his speech, Chinese President Xi Jinping has also vowed to keep China's door open to the outside world and that the country's policies toward foreign investment will not change.
