08:37, August 30, 2012

WASHINGTON, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- A high-ranking Chinese military official met with U.S. Pacific Commander Adm. Samuel J. Locklear III in Hawaii on Tuesday, discussing China-U.S. military ties and other issues of common concern.

Cai Yingting, deputy chief of the General Staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, said the two militaries should deepen pragmatic cooperation.

Cai said Asia-Pacific affairs should be handled with a global perspective to promote and safeguard world peace, stability and development.

The current divergences and conflicts between the two countries should be handled with foresight, Cai added.

Locklear said the U.S. Pacific Command is looking forward to strengthening cooperation with the Chinese side in the Asia-Pacific region, deepening exchanges, boosting strategic mutual trust, avoiding military conflict and jointly safeguarding regional and world peace and stability.

He stressed the U.S. strategic return to Asia-Pacific is not targeting China.

During the visit, Cai also met with Roger F. Mathews, deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army Pacific, Herbert J. Carlisle, commander of the U.S. Pacific Air Forces, and Cecil D. Haney, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

The Chinese military official visited the U.S. Army Pacific Command and the Pacific Fleet as well as an Aegis guided missile destroyer.
