BEIJING, March 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi delivered a speech from Beijing to the Conference on China-US Relations in Washington by video link on Wednesday, calling on the two nations to further their ties.

"Forty years ago, President Nixon paid a historic visit to China, during which our two countries issued the epoch-making Shanghai Communique," Yang said, noting that, with extraordinary strategic vision and political wisdom, the Chinese and American leaders broke the ice of estrangement between China and the United States and opened a new chapter in our bilateral relations.

"Forty years have passed and thanks to concerted efforts of both sides, China-US relations have kept moving forward despite some ups and downs over these years," Yang added.

Yang pointed out that China-US relationship, with strong vitality and great potential, has grown into one of the most important bilateral ties in the world today.

He cited the facts that frequent high-level exchanges and growing dialogue mechanisms have become a regular feature of the bilateral ties, bilateral trade and business are flourishing, there are active people-to-people and local exchanges and the two countries have maintained close coordination on international issues.

The dynamic growth of China-US relations over the last 40 years proves that our shared interests far outweigh differences, Yang said, stressing that cooperation has always been the dominant trend of our relations, and that a sound China-US relationship is in the best interest of both countries.
