Addressing a press conference at China’s Two Sessions legislative meetings, foreign minister Wang Yi said Beijing would introduce a draft resolution on strengthening international cooperation in the development of AI capabilities to the UN General Assembly.

China’s foreign minister announced that Beijing would submit a draft resolution to the United Nations, advocating for increased international cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

The rapid advancement of AI has garnered global attention, particularly with the 2022 introduction of ChatGPT, a generative program developed by the US-based OpenAI. This technology can compose stories, generate images, write computer code, and perform other tasks based on simple text prompts.

The emergence of ChatGPT, alongside other generative products—many originating in China—has sparked widespread interest. However, it has also raised concerns globally about the potential misuse of the technology.

During a press conference at China’s Two Sessions legislative meetings on Thursday, Foreign Minister Wang Yi announced that Beijing would propose a draft resolution to the UN General Assembly. The resolution aims to “strengthen international cooperation in artificial intelligence capacity building.” He refrained from disclosing specific details about the resolution’s content or providing a timeline for its submission.

According to Wang, the move would encourage all parties to enhance technology-sharing efforts and endeavor to narrow the intelligence gap, ensuring that no country is excluded.

Wang further expressed that artificial intelligence had reached a critical stage of explosive growth. He added that the proposal was to give equal consideration to both development and security. He additionally cited that new advancements and opportunities must not only be embraced but also implemented with caution.
