China's global status rose last year, and the Sino-Russia relationship was "satisfactory", according to a majority of participants in a recent survey.
More than 95 percent of respondents to the online survey said they believed China's international status rose, with nearly 61 percent saying the country's status "rose somewhat", while 35 percent said it "rose greatly".
The survey of public opinion of China's diplomatic work was conducted by the Horizon Research Consultancy Group from Feb 15 to 22, and covered 7,344 participants in 19 cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, Guangdong province.
Another example was President Xi Jinping's announcement at the United Nations in September that China would take a series of concrete measures to contribute to global development, Wang added.
He emphasized that China is "an active participant" that coordinates with other countries in the international community.
