Chinese ambassador to the US comment on Xi's upcoming visit


16:42, February 13, 2012

Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Zhang Yesui, says the upcoming visit of Vice President Xi Jinping will further accelerate the development of Sino-US cooperative partnership. CRI's Washington chief correspondent Xiaohong has more.

Ambassador Zhang Yesui says Vice President Xi Jinping's upcoming visit to the United States is one of the most important high-level exchanges between China and the United States. It aims to push forward the implementation of the consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries.

He notes that this year marks the 40th anniversary of former US President Richard Nixon's visit to China and the release of Shanghai Communique. Over the past decades, great breakthroughs have been achieved in Sino-US relations, which have generally remained stable in recent years.

"During Chinese President Hu Jintao's successful state visit to the US last year, he and US President Barack Obama reached a consensus on building a cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit."

Ambassador Zhang Yesui points that with the deepening of such cooperative partnership, the countries are now enjoying an increasingly closer tie. And there is still room to improve such cooperation in dealing with both domestic and international issues either on a regional or a global level.

"The building of cooperative partnership should also deal properly with confrontations and differences. The key is to respect each other, especially on each other's core interests. Meanwhile, the two countries should expand dialogue and exchanges to promote mutual trust in order to keep the proper direction of bilateral ties."

Ambassador Zhang Yesui says that China is a developing country. It has no intention to harm other's interest during its own development. And Sino-US ties should not be a subzero game. The Chinese diplomat stresses that China's development will bring more opportunities to Sino-US cooperation.

Vice President Xi Jinping will visit the US between Jan 13th to 17th at the invitation of his US counterpart Jo Baiden. The trip will take him to Washington, Iowa and California.

For CRI, this is Xiaohong reporting from Washington.
