08:42, February 16, 2012

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping on Tuesday held talks with U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, and Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Xi said China and the U.S. are striving to build a cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit.

As the two countries share more and more common interests, they also share more and more important common responsibilities, Xi said.

Xi said both countries should make efforts to ensure the development trend of the two countries' mutually beneficial relationship, enhance mutual trust, deepen cooperation and manage divergence properly, in order to better maintain and develop the cooperative partnership between the two countries.

Reviewing the past year's high-level military exchanges and dialogue between the two sides, Xi noted that the relationship between the two military establishments is an important part of China-U.S. ties, and must subject to and serve the bilateral cooperative partnership as a whole.

He said he hoped the two countries' defense apparatus, based on the principle of mutual respect and mutual trust, equality and reciprocity, will continue to expand dialogue and exchanges.
