Chinese VP's US visit to build partnership


08:43, February 10, 2012

BEIJING, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping's upcoming trip to the United States is aimed at building a cooperative partnership between the two nations, an official said on Thursday.

At the invitation of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and Turkish President Abdullah Gul, Xi Jinping is scheduled to pay official visits to the United States, Ireland and Turkey from Feb. 13 to 22.

Xi will make the U.S. visit to implement the consensus reached by the heads of state to establish a partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, China's Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai said at a news briefing on the Vice President's visit.

At the beginning of last year, Chinese President Hu Jintao paid a state visit to the United States, where Hu and U.S. President Barack Obama agreed to establish a partnership based on mutual respect and benefit, setting the tone for China-U.S. ties.

"Both China and the United States attach great importance to the visit by Xi," Cui said, adding that the two sides are making arrangements for the visit "in an orderly way."

"We believe that Vice President Xi's visit is sure to be a success," Cui added.

According to the vice foreign minister, Xi will meet with President Obama and hold talks with Vice President Biden during his tour. He will also meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.
