Ambassador Cui Tiankai attended the 45th OAS General Assembly


The 45th OAS General Assembly was held from 14 to 16 June, 2015 at its headquarters in Washington DC with the theme of "Present and Future of the OAS". Ambassador Cui Tiankai, on behalf of the Permanent Observer of China to this organization, led the Chinese Government Delegation attended the assembly and the dialogue between OAS Members and permanent observers.


In the dialogue, Ambassador Cui stressed that the Western Hemisphere countries have common needs to strengthen cooperation with each other. China supports countries of the Americas to develop relations on the basis of mutual respect, equality and non-interference in internal affairs, and we are happy to see regional cooperation in the Americas making the best of the advantages and strengths of each country, improving governance capability and delivering coordinated economic and social development. The OAS is a key inter-governmental political organization in the Western Hemisphere with the longest history and the largest number of members. In recent years, the OAS has increased its focus on citizen security, anti-drug trafficking, anti-terrorism, poverty reduction, disaster prevention and other important social issues, and has made positive progress. We wish and believe that the OAS, through continuous efforts and improvement, will successfully achieve the established goals and make greater contribution to regional prosperity and stability, as well as the well-being of the people of the Americas.


After a brief review of the China-OAS relationship, Ambassador Cui stated that China will promote important exchanges and enhance mutual political trust with the OAS, support the vision of "More Rights for More People in the Americas", proposed by Secretary General Almagro, work hard with the OAS to implement the new cooperation agreement and continue our assistance to help the OAS with infrastructure and capacity building. Ambassador Cui also emphasized that China will continue to work with the OAS to build on the successful cooperation in the past decade and level up our relations.
