Jiang Zemin on the Olympic Truce
September 14, 2000
China has all along stood for the settlement of international disputes through peaceful means. I very much appreciate your [IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch's] personal and IOC's positive efforts in promoting world peace. China supported the UN General Assembly in its adoption of the resolution on the Olympic Truce, and will, as always, endorse the spirit of Olympic Truce. I sincerely hope that all the countries and regions in conflict can observe the Olympic Truce and will seek at all times to resolve international disputes through dialogue, consultation and other peaceful means, and work together for an endurable world peace.
