China and the United States

The engagement between China and the United States has shown that a peaceful Sino-U.S. relationship benefits both countries, while a confrontational one harms both. There are some differences and disagreements between China and the United States. But on the whole this relationship has been moving forward, not backward.

In handling Sino-U.S. relations, we always believe the two sides should view and handle this bilateral relationship from a strategic and long-term perspective. In particular, the U.S. side needs to honor its commitment and carefully and properly handle Taiwan and Tibet-related issues that concern China's core interests. The two countries should work together to increase mutual strategic trust, remove various disturbances and embrace healthy interaction and win-win cooperation.

China and the United States have more converging interests in the Asia-Pacific region than anywhere else in the world. The trend of peace, development and cooperation is going strong in this region. It meets people's will and it is unstoppable. We believe all countries in the world, big or small, strong or weak, rich or poor, are equal members of the international community. China is ready to work with other countries to build a more equal and harmonious world. We hope to see and welcome a constructive role by the United States in this region. At the same time, we hope the U.S. side will respect China's interests and concerns.
