Wang Fan, vice-president of the China Foreign Affairs University, said the view of China's international status was "objective on the whole".
Last year, China assumed a more active role in addressing major global issues, including climate change, the Iran nuclear issue and the situation in Syria, Wang said. For example, China has been pushing for negotiations to address the conflict in Syria via a reasoned approach to a complicated issue where "the interests of powers are interwoven", he said.
