The term “community with a shared future for mankind” first appeared in the white paper titled China’s Peaceful Development. The white paper proposed that “The international community should reject the zero-sum game that was a product of the old international relations, the dangerous cold and hot war mentality, and all those beaten tracks that repeatedly led mankind to confrontation and war. It should find new perspectives from the angle of the community of common destiny, sharing weal and woe and pursuing mutually beneficial cooperation, exploring new ways to enhance exchanges and mutual learning among different civilizations, identifying new dimensions in the common interests and values of mankind, and looking for new paths to handle multiple challenges through cooperation among various countries and realize inclusive development.”
