We believe the China-US relations concern not only the well-being of both peoples, but also world peace, prosperity and stability. Cooperation is the only viable choice for China and the United States, and a better future would only be achieved through win-win cooperation.
We believe that China-US relations have made important progress this year. We have agreed to further promote strategic guidance of summit diplomacy for bilateral relations, strengthen exchanges at high and all levels, make the most of the four high-level dialogue mechanisms, expand interactions and cooperation on economy and trade, mil-to-mil relations, law enforcement, people-to-people exchange and in other areas, enhance communication and coordination on the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, Afghanistan and other major international and regional issues, and work together to take China-US relations to even greater development.
The China-US relations are at a new historic starting point. China is willing to work together with the United States to respect each other, stick to mutual benefit and reciprocity, focus on cooperation, and manage and control differences, this way we will enable our two peoples, the region and people across the world to benefit more from China-US relations.
Although there is a vast ocean between China and the United States, distance has never prevented our two great nations from coming together. And we have never stopped our efforts to pursue friendship and win-win cooperation.
Thanks to the joint efforts of several generations of leaders and the people of our two countries, historic progress has been made in China-US relations. It has benefitted our two peoples. Indeed, it has changed the world.
China and the United States now have developed into a community of deeply intertwined and shared interests. Today, our two countries share far more and broader common interests, as well as greater and stronger responsibilities in upholding global peace and promoting common development. The strategic dimension and global influence of China-US relationship have continued to grow.
Over the past two days, we have had in-depth exchange of views on how China and the United States should seize the opportunity, rise up to the challenges, and open up new grounds in our relations. Together, we have mapped out a blueprint for advancing China-US relations.
We both agree that China and the United States should remain partners, not rivals. We both agree that when we work together, we can accomplish many great things to the benefit of our two countries and the whole world.
It is my firm conviction that China-US relations face limited challenges, but boundless potential for growth. With perseverance, we can surely write a new chapter in the history of China-US relations. With perseverance, our two great nations will definitely make new contribution to creating a better future for mankind.
