The essence of China’s diplomacy is pacifism. It can be reflected in the diplomatic concept of always yearning for world peace and the deepening understanding of the three basic relationships between peace and war, peace and development, and peace and struggle. In terms of foreign policy and foreign behavior, it is reflected in actively safeguarding and striving to shape world peace, regarding striving for world peace as the top priority of foreign policy, upholding the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, advocating the settlement of international disputes through peaceful means, taking active actions in the world disarmament movement, actively participating in the UN peacekeeping mechanism, and constructively participating in the settlement of international and regional hot issues. Moreover, it can also be seen from China’s shaping the general direction of world peace and shaping the economic, political, security and human foundation of world peace. .The pacifist nature of the People’s Republic of China and the unremitting pursuit of world peace are the result of the combined effects of China’s long-standing cultural tradition of harmony, the Marxist view of peace, the nature of the socialist system, and the theme of the current era. Chinese diplomacy, which adheres to the pacifism, is beneficial to the peace and development of the Asia-Pacific region and the whole world as well as China’s own development. Faced with unprecedented major changes in a world with increasingly instabilities and uncertainties, China, as it is approaching the center of the world stage, will adhere to the pacifism in the diplomatic field and, while striving for the Two Centenary Goals, continue to make new and greater contributions to world peace and development and the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
