【Date】 November 2014

【Location】 Beijing

【Occasion】In talks with then-U.S. President Barack Obama in the Zhongnanhai compound

【Remarks】China and the U.S. have different national conditions, histories, cultures and paths of development. Thus, the two sides should understand and respect one another and live in harmony while maintaining their diversity. Differences are unavoidable but they are not the primary component of the bilateral relationship, and the two governments should properly handle their differences so as to maintain stable bilateral relations.

[Remarks] Both history and reality have shown that cooperation between China and the U.S. benefits both nations, whereas confrontation hurts both. China and the U.S. can cooperate to succeed in undertakings that benefit both countries as well as the rest of the world. On the other hand, confrontation between China and the U.S. is bound to be disastrous for the world.

【Date】July 2014

【Occasion】The Sixth Round of China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue, the Fifth Round of China-U.S. High-Level Consultation on Person-to-Person Exchange

【Remarks】The way China and the U.S. perceive each other’s strategic intentions will directly affect their respective policies as well as the development of bilateral relations. When faced with problems, the crucial thing is to work together to resolve them instead of letting the problems fester.

【Remarks】Both sides should seek common ground while preserving or resolving differences. Anything conducive to injecting positive energy into bilateral relations should be incorporated, while negative influences should be eliminated.

15. To plant more “flowers” and fewer “thorns” in the development of China-U.S. relations

【Date】July 2014

【Location】Beijing

【Occasion】In talks with former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson at the Great Hall of the People

【Remarks】To develop China-U.S. relations, both sides should follow the major consensus that President Obama and I reached on building a new model of major-country relations between China and the U.S. We must always insist on enhancing and accumulating mutual trust, expanding mutual interests, strengthening cooperation, planting more flowers and fewer thorns, removing interferences and avoiding suspicion and confrontation.

16. Enhancing dialogue and cooperation is the only correct choice for China and the U.S.

【Date】December 2013

【Remarks】The world today is far from peaceful. China and the U.S. shoulder a common responsibility for safeguarding global peace and stability and promoting the development and progress of mankind. Strengthening dialogue and cooperation is the only correct choice for the two countries. Both sides should unswervingly march forward in the development of bilateral relations, respect each other's core interests, actively explore practical cooperation, and properly manage sensitive issues and differences to ensure the sustained, healthy and stable development of China-U.S. relations.

【Date】June 2013

【Location】California

【Occasion】Meet the press with then-U.S. President Barack Obama at the Annenberg Retreat

【Remarks】As economic globalization develops rapidly and all countries attempt to sail in the same boat when faced with difficulties, China and the U.S. should settle on a new kind of major-country relationship. Both sides should agree on a relationship based on mutual respect, cooperation and win-win results that benefit the citizens of both countries and the world. The international community expects the continuous improvement and development of China-U.S. relations. When the U.S. and China work together, we can be an anchor of global stability and a propellant of world peace.

【Date】April 2013
