14:21, February 15, 2012

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping held talks Tuesday at the White House with his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden on deepening Sino-U.S. relations.

During the talks, Xi said his current visit is aimed at increasing strategic mutual trust, exploring more substantial cooperation and deepening the friendship between the two countries and peoples.

Xi said the trip is also for implementing the important consensuses reached by the two countries' presidents to advance the China-U.S. cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit.

China and the United States, two of the biggest countries in the world, have extensive and important mutual interests, Xi noted. Maintaining a healthy, stable and sustained development of bilateral ties is not only in the interests of both countries and peoples, but also benefits the peace, stability and prosperity in Asia and the world at large.

Xi said that in the process of developing the China-U.S. cooperative partnership, various problems and challenges would inevitably emerge from time to time.

But the two sides, he said, should have full confidence and a persistent will to develop a new type of ties featuring harmonious co-existence, orderly competition and win-win cooperation by taking care of mutual interests and eliminating the negative effects of differences and contradictions.

Xi raised a five-point proposal for furthering bilateral ties.

Firstly, the two sides should treat each other honestly and make full use of various mechanisms of dialogue and consultation to inject new vigor into the Sino-U.S. cooperative partnership.
