U.S. to build a cooperative relationship with China: Obama


09:50, November 17, 2011

CANBERRA, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama addressed Australia's Parliament in Canberra on Thursday, saying the U.S. sees future in the Asia-Pacific region, and will seek continued cooperation with China.

Despite there were comments saying that the U.S. is increasing its military presence in Australia because of the threat it felt on the rise of China, Obama reaffirmed that this is not the picture.

He said the U.S. sees bright future in the region, and it would continue its efforts to build a cooperative relationship with China.

"All of our nations have a profound interest in the rise of a peaceful and prosperous China, and the U.S. welcomes it," Obama said while addressing a special sitting of members of parliament and senators in a packed House of Representatives.

He said the U.S. would also seek more opportunities for cooperation with China including "greater communication" between our militaries to promote understanding and avoid "miscalculation. "

Meanwhile, the president again affirmed the nation's commitment in the Asia-Pacific region, saying that further cooperation in the fast growing region will help the U.S. overcome economic difficulties.

What President Obama means is that China had better adhere to the rules outlined and made up by the United States or else. This is the "Walk softly and carry a big stick" foreign policy of Teddy Roosevelt. China had better find a bigger stick!
