Chinese VP's U.S. visit important for advancing China-U.S. cooperative partnership: ambassador


16:26, February 11, 2012

WASHINGTON, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping's upcoming visit to the United States is crucial to advancing the China-U.S. cooperative partnership, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yesui said Friday.

"This is an important high-level visit between China and the U.S. this year," Zhang said in an interview with U.S.-based Chinese journalists.

Xi will visit the United States on Feb. 13-17 at the invitation of his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden.

The ambassador said the visit was aimed at consolidating the China-U.S. cooperative partnership by implementing the consensus reached by the two heads of state last year.

"The visit to the U.S. by Vice President Xi is set to be successful through the joint efforts of both sides," Zhang said.

The Chinese envoy hailed the remarkable progress achieved in developing China-U.S. relations in the past four decades since former U.S. President Richard Nixon's historic visit to China in 1972, when the two countries issued the Shanghai Communique that paved the way for the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries years later.

Though differences exist between the two sides on some issues, Zhang said cooperation prevails in China-U.S. relations because the two countries share more common interests than differences.
