Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for efforts to respect and protect nature, and promote harmony between humans and nature. He made the remarks while attending a tree-planting activity in Beijing. Noting that the situation of epidemic control in China is constantly getting better, Xi Jinping said planting trees gives a boost to the expedited return to normal work and life. Talking to officials and people on-site, the Chinese president pointed out that afforestation has been a fine tradition of the Chinese nation since ancient times. He noted China has seen its forest resources continuously increase and its area of desertified land decline. That's making important contributions to the climate change response and global ecological governance. Underscoring the need to adhere to the principle of people-centered development, Xi called for the planting of trees for the people, thus bringing benefits to them. He also stressed that citizens bear legal obligations to support afforestation and forest protection.
