China, U.S. underline cooperation, trust remains key (2)


08:12, August 19, 2011

Xi also elaborated on how to build that trust through high-level visits, bilateral dialogue platforms, and exchanges of military and non-governmental sectors.

"The key to ensuring the healthy and steady development of China-U.S. relations is to respect each other's core interests," Xi said.

He said the Chinese people cherish the development path and political system of their own choosing, state sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Taiwan and Tibet-related issues, which concern China's core interests and the feelings of 1.3 billion Chinese, should be handled prudently and properly to avoid damaging China-U.S. relations, he said.

Biden said the United States fully recognizes that issues related to Taiwan and Tibet are part of China's core interests.

He said the United States will firmly stand by the one-China policy and will not support "Taiwan independence," adding that the U.S. fully acknowledges that Tibet is an inalienable part of China.

In a separate meeting with Biden later Thursday, top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo reaffirmed the importance of building strategic trust and properly dealing with differences and sensitive issues.

Xi stressed that "China and the United States both gain from cooperation and lose from conflicts." Only through cooperation can the two countries forge "a close, permanent and friendly relationship" envisioned by Biden.
