Chinese ambassador says mutual respect key to China-U.S. ties


17:16, September 29, 2011

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Ambassador to the United States Zhang Yesui on Wednesday called on China and the U.S. to respect each other's core interests so as to advance bilateral relations.

Zhang was speaking at a reception held at the Chinese Embassy to celebrate the 62nd anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. It was attended by about 600 guests, including Acting U.S. Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank, Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and Assistant Secretary of Energy David Sandalow.

Recalling the great achievements that China had made in the past 62 years, Zhang stressed there was still a long way to go for China to realize modernization, as it faced a number of challenges.

The Chinese diplomat said China was devoted to shifting the mode of its economic development and placing more emphasis on the quality and efficiency of the development in order to continue to raise the living standard of its people by enabling them to share the fruits of the development. At the same time, China was firmly committed to the road of peaceful development.

On China-U.S. relations, Zhang said China-U.S. ties had become one of the most important relationships in the world despite the ups and downs in the past four decades.

During his successful visit to the United States in January, China's President Hu Jintao reached an important consensus with U.S. counterpart Barack Obama on constructing a cooperative partnership on the basis of mutual respect, mutual benefit and win-win results. The two leaders agreed that a stable and progressive China-U.S. relationship not only benefited the two states and their peoples, but also contributed to the peace and development of Asia and the world as a whole, Zhang said.
