BEIJING, July 3 (Xinhua) -- The 10th World Peace Forum opened in Beijing on Sunday, with more than 300 former senior officials, diplomatic envoys and scholars participating online or offline.

Themed "Preserving International Stability: Commonality, Comprehensiveness and Cooperation," this year's forum includes topics such as the preservation of world peace, European security order, and the United Nations and world order.
