WASHINGTON, June 25 -- Senior Chinese and U.S. officials wrapped up their two-day high-level talks here Wednesday with substantial outcomes in the strategic, economic and people-to-people fields.


During this year's Seventh China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) and the Sixth China-U.S. High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange (CPE), a wide range of bilateral, regional and global issues of common concern were addressed, including climate change, interaction in the Asia-Pacific region, managing differences and sensitive situations, the United Nations and multilateral affairs, science, technology and innovation, green ports and ships, as well as the fight against illegal trade in wildlife.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang said that during the two-day S&ED talks, the two sides conducted candid and in-depth exchanges of views on issues of long-term and strategic importance, and achieved over 70 valuable outcomes.

Wang said the success of this round of dialogue has laid a stronger foundation for the healthy and stable growth of bilateral ties and has helped prepare for Chinese President Xi Jinping's upcoming state visit to the United States in September.

Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi noted that on the strategic tracks, the two sides have achieved more than 120 results in a wide range of key areas.

The sides discussed how to build a new type of major-country relations, deepen practical cooperation, enhance cooperation in the Asia-Pacific, handle regional hot issues and global challenges, and manage differences and disputes in constructive ways, Yang said.

At the closing ceremony, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that the depth and breadth of bilateral discussions were significant and that this year's S&ED talks reflected a shared U.S.-China commitment to cooperating in areas of common interest and seeking constructive solutions where the two sides have differences.

Kerry emphasized that the United States welcomes a stable, peaceful and prosperous China that plays a responsible role in global affairs.

During the talks, the sides attained 119 outcomes in seven areas, namely education, science and technology, culture, health, sports, women and youth affairs.
