Chinese VP's U.S. visit important for advancing China-U.S. cooperative partnership: ambassador (2)


16:26, February 11, 2012

He said the consensus reached last January by visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama on building a China-U.S. cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit was "pragmatic and forward-looking."

With enhanced cooperation, the two countries are sharing increasing common interests as they are becoming increasingly involved with each other in many ways.

"China and the U.S. need to, and can, have better cooperation not only in promoting domestic and global economic growth, but also in tackling regional and global challenges," Zhang said.

The ambassador said that the key to building a China-U.S. cooperative partnership lies in properly dealing of frictions and disputes between the two sides.

"It's crucial for the two sides to show mutual respect, especially to each other's core interests and major concerns, while strengthening mutual dialogues and communications so as to deepen mutual trust and avoid miscalculation," he said.

Zhang emphasized that as a developing country, China will unswervingly adhere to the path of peaceful development and has no intention of harming the interests of any other countries during the process of its own development.

As China and the United States are not engaged in a zero-sum game, China's development will only bring more opportunities for cooperation between the two countries, he said.

"I believe that China and the U.S. will find a new path of peaceful co-existence and common development for big powers," Zhang said.
