WASHINGTON, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday that China and the United States should increase strategic trust and respect core interests and major concerns of each other.

Xi, who is here on a five-day official visit, made the remarks when addressing a luncheon hosted by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and the U.S.-China Business Council.

"Without trust, one can achieve nothing," Xi said, citing a Chinese saying.

China and the United States have important interwoven interests, said the Chinese leader. "For us, strategic trust is the foundation for mutually beneficial cooperation, and greater trust will lead to broader cooperation."

The two sides should increase mutual understanding and trust, and reduce misunderstanding and suspicion, said Xi.

U.S. President Barack Obama said on a number of occasions that the United States welcomes a strong, prosperous and successful China that plays a greater role in world affairs. Vice President Biden stressed in an article he wrote after his visit to China last August that China's rise is not America's demise, Xi said.

"We in China hope to work with the U.S. side to maintain close high-level exchanges. We hope to increase dialogue and exchange of views with the United States by making full use of our channels of communication, including the Strategic and Economic Dialogues, cultural and people-to-people exchanges, and military-to-military exchanges," he said.

"By doing so, we can better appreciate each other's strategic intentions and development goals, avoid misinterpretation and misjudgment, build up mutual understanding and strategic trust, and on that basis, fully tap our cooperation potential."
