BEIJING – Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is to attend the opening of the 54th session of the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization (AALCO) and deliver a key-note speech later this month, a foreign ministry spokesperson said on Tuesday.
The annual AALCO session, which will take place in Beijing from April 13 to 17, will involve delegates from AALCO members and international organizations, spokesperson Hua Chunying told a daily press briefing.
A special meeting will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Bandung Conference in 1955, and an international seminar on United Nations chapters and post-war international order are scheduled to take place on the sidelines of the AALCO session, Hua said.
Since its founding, AALCO has made crucial contributions to Asia and Africa, increasing coordination and cooperation and safeguarding common interests.
“As host, China would like to work with AALCO and member countries to make the upcoming session a success, joining with Asian and African countries to seek democracy and rule of law in international relations,” Hua said.
