Cooperation between China and the United States in addressing global challenges will help to promote world peace and security. The two countries agreed to advance cooperation to: counter violent extremism; prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons, other weapons of mass destruction, and their means of delivery; strengthen nuclear security; eliminate infectious disease and hunger; end extreme poverty; respond effectively to the challenge of climate change; counter piracy; prevent and mitigate disasters; address cyber-security; fight transnational crime; and combat human trafficking.

Cooperation on addressing global economic challenges will help to boost world development and prosperity. The goals include: push the international community to aid developing economies, especially the most underdeveloped nations; support the world including Africa in poverty reduction, economic development and regional integration in order to contribute to inclusive and sustainable economic growth; and support the Group of 20 launching a framework for strong, sustainable and balanced growth.

Cooperation in addressing climate change will help ensure the future of the world. Aims include: work with other countries to actively push forward the comprehensive, effective and sustained implementation of the U.N. Convention on Climate Change and the Cancun agreement, as well as promote this year's climate change conference in South Africa to achieve positive results.

In a recent interview with Xinhua, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said: "There is a great opportunity to start a new era in U.S.-China relations."

He said the U.S.-China partnership and cooperation was "perhaps even more important" than anytime before and their cooperation "could be good for the world."

Based on mutual respect and mutual benefit laid out in the joint statement, China-U.S relations will sure begin a new journey.
