Chinese President Hu urges efforts to ensure global energy security

The international community should take joint efforts to ensure global energy security, Chinese President Hu Jintao said in St. Peterburg, Russia on Monday.

 "To ensure global energy security, we need to develop and implement a new energy security concept that calls for mutually beneficial cooperation, diversified forms of development and common energy security through coordination," Hu said in a written speech to the outreach session of the G8 summit.

While global energy security is crucial to the economic growth and people’s livelihood of all countries, the world peace and stability, and common development, "few countries can achieve energy security without joining in international cooperation," he stressed.
