On February 21, 2023, Foreign Minister Qin Gang attended the opening ceremony of the Lanting Forum themed "The Global Security Initiative: China's Proposal for Solving Security Challenges", and delivered a keynote speech.

Qin Gang pointed out that China is  committed to following a Chinese approach to resolving hotspot issues.  China believes in promoting peace through talks. China emphasizes on addressing both the symptoms and root causes, and calls for the involved parties to meet each other halfway and pursues fairness and justice.

On the Iranian nuclear issue, China has actively promoted the resumption of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), to uphold the legitimate rights and interests of relevant countries and the international nuclear non-proliferation regime. On the Korean Peninsula issue, China stands for pursuing in parallel the establishment of a peace mechanism and the denuclearization of the Peninsula, and addressing the legitimate concerns of all parties in a balanced manner, to safeguard peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. On Middle East, China welcomes and supports the security dialogues among regional countries including Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as regional efforts to build a Middle East security architecture that suits the realities of the region and accommodates the interests of all parties.

It has been almost a year since the full escalation of the Ukraine crisis. The international community is watching the developments closely. China is deeply worried about the escalation of the conflict and a possible spiral out of control. Since the outbreak of the crisis, China has taken an objective and impartial stance based on the merits of the issue. President Xi Jinping put forward "four points" on what must be done, "four things" the international community must do together and "three observations" of the crisis, which has played a responsible and constructive role in easing the situation and deescalating the crisis. China will continue to promote peace talks, contribute its ideas for a political settlement of the crisis, and join the international community to promote dialogue and consultation, address the concerns of all parties and seek common security. China urges certain countries to immediately stop fueling the fire, stop shifting blame to China, and stop touting "Ukraine today, Taiwan tomorrow".
