Injecting more ‘positive energy’ into China-US relations (2)

China is willing to do its best to use more “positive energy” to help remove Americans’ doubts and worries on issues concerning their core interests. However, the key point still lies in Americans themselves when seeking the real solution to the problem. The next decade will be crucial for China-U.S. relations. If the “trust deficit” continues to expand, strategic mistrust will likely translate into strategic confrontation. If the two countries work together to reduce the “trust deficit” patiently and sincerely, the United States will eventually realize that China has no intention of confronting it and China’s rise does not mean United States’ decline.

The lack of composure also reflects the internal defects of the U.S. political system. The United States needs political reform led by a strong government, which also mainly depends on Americans themselves. Chinese are confident in their path, theories, and system, but will never interfere in the internal affairs of other countries or “export” its system.

Despite all challenges facing the establishment of a new type of great power relations, it is certain that China and the United States will continue to enhance bilateral cooperation. The two countries can achieve mutual benefit and common progress as long as they respect each other, properly handle differences, expand common interests, and improve their friendship.
