Xi-Obama summit boosts mutual trust, understanding


09:38, June 12, 2013

BEIJING, June 11 (Xinhua) -- The first summit between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his U.S. counterpart, Barack Obama, boosted mutual trust and understanding between the world's two largest economies, experts worldwide have said.

The overall tone of the meeting was "positive," said Douglas H. Paal, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington-based foreign policy think tank.

The talks were aimed at shaping a broad framework on how to deal with a number of major issues between the two nations, and addressing the question of what kind of relationship they want to build, Paal said.

Paal also said he hoped the two leaders' emerging personal relationship will help smooth over tensions on the Korean Peninsula and lead to further discussions on long-term stability and denuclearization in that area.

Ukrainian international relations expert Denis Necheporuk said the summit, the first of its kind between the two leaders, will boost the two countries' partnership, which would be favorable to world stability.

Developing a new type of Sino-U.S. relationship on the basis of mutual respect, equality and reconciliation is important to the two big countries, Necheporuk said.

"America and China are the world's superpowers. Of course, their cooperative and comprehensive relationship will benefit the whole global politics," Necheporuk added.

Joergen Delman, a professor in China Studies at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies at the University of Copenhagen, said that the main achievement of the meeting was that it demonstrated to the world and to the peoples of China and the United States that the leaders of the two countries are keen on building mutual trust and finding common stands on some of the thorny issues that often dominate their bilateral relationship.

The professor said it is encouraging that the interest in continuing the ongoing collaboration in key policy arenas such as economy, energy, environment and the military were confirmed.
