08:19, August 19, 2011

BEIJING, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Vice President of the United States Joe Biden said the U.S. is committed to building a close, permanent and friendly relationship with China during talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping held Thursday morning in Beijing.

During the talks, Biden exchanged views with Vice President Xi on furthering bilateral ties. He said that since strategic trust is crucial to the lasting and steady development of U.S.-China relations, both countries should increase their contact in order to enhance mutual understanding and avoid strategic miscalculations.

Biden said that cooperation between the two nations plays a vital role in stabilizing the world economy, adding that the United States welcomes China's sustained economic growth and is ready to make joint efforts with China to ensure the steady growth of the global economy.

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

He said the U.S. will firmly adhere to the one-China policy and will not support "Taiwan independence." He said the U.S. fully acknowledges that Tibet is an inalienable part of the People's Republic of China.

Biden also pledged to boost cooperation with China to properly handle regional issues and global problems in order to promote world peace and stability.

Biden arrived in Beijing on Wednesday for a six-day official visit to China.
