The foreign minister said that China-US relations now stand at a new starting point at the second decade of this century.

"In January 2011, Chinese President Hu Jintao visited the United States. He reached agreement with President Obama on working together to build a China-US cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, thus ushering China-US relations into a new stage," Yang added.

According to Yang, Chinese President Hu Jintao, Top legislator Wu Bangguo and Premier Wen Jiabao all have held many important and positive meetings with U.S. leaders in recent years on strengthening our bilateral relations and promoting China-US cooperation.

"Last month, Vice President Xi Jinping paid a very successful visit to the United States to further implement the agreement reached between the two presidents, thus advancing the building of China-US cooperative partnership," Yang added.

"We need to act on the agreement reached between our two presidents and work hard to build China-US cooperative partnership," Yang proposed, suggesting that China and United States must increase dialogue, enhance mutual trust, deepen cooperation, and manage differences to ensure the healthy and steady growth of the bilateral relations.

The conference is held to mark the 40th anniversary of President Nixon's China visit and issuing of Shanghai Communique. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Chinese ambassador to the United States Zhang Yesui attends the conference.

Forty years ago, Richard Nixon became the first U.S. president to visit the People's Republic of China. He met with the late Chairman Mao Zedong on Feb. 21, with the Shanghai Communique released on the day when he left China.

The visit and the release of the document had a significant impact on Sino-U.S. relations, leading to the official establishment of diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial-level between the countries on Jan. 1, 1979.
