It is owed to the new buoy of mutual respect and mutual benefit, win-win outcome that China and the U.S. must ensure that they will not challenge the legal interests of the opposite side. First of all, they should observe the public international law. To this end, China and the U.S. need gradually to foster the habit of standardizing bilateral actions and ties in line with the International Law. Concerning those global mechanisms that have already been in place, both nations should take the lead in maintaining them if they already acceded to. Facing new phenomenon in massive global relations, the mankind also needs to enact new rules and regulations. In this regard, China and the United States need to coordinate and spur the establishment of new international norms and rules for the service of both countries as well as the world progress.

China and the U.S. carry on in-depth cooperation on the extensive bilateral, regional and global cooperation, and this will be the normalcy for the new 21st century. At the same time, the occurrence of a lot of contradictions will also be normal phenomenon. Both sides must give it a correct treatment. It is quite normal for the China and the United States to have some disputes and they however need to be healed or bridged instead of exaggeration or escalation.

Therefore, both countries should cooperate and co-exit in the Asia-Pacific region and enhancing the understanding of each other's strategic trend. Even if there have been longstanding frictions and stern disparities, they should be eased or reduced by means of cooperation, rather than letting sole or fortuitous accidents to trammel the entire bilateral relationship.

President Hu Jintao has been scored a great success with his four-day official US trip, and he has returned home with the zeal and enthusiasm of American hosts for their Chinese guests and left both sides greater confidence in the development of the new century civilization.
