-- Chinese people increasingly care about China's status in the world, and pay close attention to the impact of international situation on China and have a stronger willingness to voice on international affairs.
-- The Chinese public need to know the international community more thoroughly and comprehensively.
-- The Chinese must avoid narrow nationalism, have a sense of national pride and dignity, and at the same time be far-sighted and broad-minded about the global issues.
-- The Chinese public must understand China's commitment and responsibility to the world and support the country's contribution to the world within its own capabilities and national comprehensive strength.
