China and ASEAN have embarked on a path of friendship and win-win cooperation with positive outcomes in various fields, becoming a model of dynamic cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region.
The upgrading of the relations also comes at a time when the world confronts resurgent protectionism, hegemonism and unilateralism, which are posing grave threats to world peace and development. As standard-bearers of multilateralism, the two sides will continue to firmly stand together to guard against any attempt to create division, stoke confrontation, and undermine regional dialogue and cooperation.
The two sides share plenty of common pursuits. Both China and ASEAN will jointly drive forward the cause of guarding regional and global peace, stability and prosperity by fostering a closer China-ASEAN community with a shared future.
