BEIJING -- China will strengthen cooperation and exchanges in the energy sector with the rest of the world to play a constructive role in safeguarding global energy security, according to a white paper released Wednesday.
China is an active and responsible participant in international energy cooperation and it has established bilateral dialogue and cooperation mechanisms in the field of energy with many countries and regions, says the white paper on China's energy policy released by the Information Office of the State Council.
"China shoulders a wide range of obligations and plays an active and constructive role in international energy cooperation," it says.
China's energy development has not only satisfied its own needs for economic and social progress, but also made great contributions to world's energy security and global market stability, the white paper says.
Different countries should ensure mutually beneficial cooperation in international energy resources exploration, improve cooperation mechanisms, increase international energy supply and maintain market order, according to the white paper.
