BEIJING, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping on Sunday encouraged people-to-people exchanges and cooperation between China and the United States.

"People-to-people exchanges form a significant foundation to boost the China-U.S. cooperation, and also an important part of establishing a new type of relationship between China and the United States," Xi said.

Xi made the remarks when meeting with a U.S. good-will delegation headed by the Governor of Iowa Terry Branstad and composed of Xi's American friends in Iowa back from 1985.

Xi said he was glad to meet his old friends from Iowa again following his visit to the United States in February, noting that China-U.S. relations have come to a critical stage of developing a new type of relationship featuring mutual respect, harmonious co-existence and win-win cooperation between major powers.

"It's not an easy job to accomplish," Xi told his American guests.
