China News Service, Beijing, February 15 (Reporter Ma Haiyan) On the Chinese Lunar New Year’s Day, the Western Valentine’s Day “two festivals” coincident day (14th), US Secretary of State John · Kerry began his appointment The second trip to China since. On the first day of his visit to China, Chinese President Xi Jinping, State Council Premier Li Keqiang, State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with him respectively, plus a press conference. Kerry’s Valentine’s Day is full of harvest.
China is the second stop of Kerry’s fifth trip to Asia. Among the four visiting countries of South Korea, China, Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates, China is undoubtedly an impressive stop. Wang Fan, assistant to the Dean of the Foreign Affairs University, told the China News Agency that on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, the US Secretary of State’s visit to China is of great significance, paving the way for the upcoming summit meeting between the two countries and also discussing some hot issues. The high-level Chinese leaders met with them within one day, which also shows that China attaches importance to building a new type of relationship between China and the United States.
Xi Jinping asked Kerry to tell Obama: China is firmly committed to building a new China-US relationship with the US, and is willing to strengthen dialogue with the US, enhance mutual trust, deepen cooperation, compromise differences, and promote sustained and healthy relations between the two countries. Stable and forward.
Kerry also said that the US attaches great importance to building a new type of relationship between the United States and China. As the world’s two major economies, the United States and China should strengthen pragmatic cooperation, manage and control differences, and continuously enhance the driving force for the development of bilateral relations.
Wang Fan believes that the new big power relations must be equal and must respect each other’s core interests and major concerns. China will not do things that harm the core interests of the United States, and we hope that the United States can give respect to it. The United States is very clear about this. “The United States is committed to establishing a positive, cooperative and comprehensive relationship with China and welcomes a peaceful and prosperous China’s rise that plays an active role in world affairs. & rdquo; This information that Kerry conveyed to the Chinese side is very important.
Huang Ping, director of the American Institute of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said in an interview with the China News Agency that last year, President Xi Jinping held a historic meeting with President Obama at Annaberg Manor and decided to build China and the United States. The new big-nation relationship, this time Kerry also expressed the attitude of the US side attaching great importance to building a new-type relationship between the United States and China. The characteristics of the new big power relations are that they do not conflict, do not confront each other, respect each other, and win-win cooperation. This applies to the communication between China and the United States at various levels between the two countries, between regions and in the field of global governance.
Huang Ping noted that Kerry’s visit to China and China’s leaders have both hot issues in the traditional security field and non-traditional security issues. Under the consensus of the new major power relations, whether it is the Iranian nuclear issue in the traditional security field, the Syrian issue, the Korean Peninsula issue, the Afghan issue, or the issues of energy, environmental protection, climate change in the non-traditional security field, etc. Got a discussion. “Under the traditional security, military confrontation and even war solving problems, non-traditional security issues are not independent of each country’s ability to resolve independently, and international cooperation must be strengthened. & rdquo;
The South China Sea issue is undoubtedly a hot spot of concern to all parties. During his meeting with Kerry, Wang Yi expounded China’s four proposals for the current situation in the South China Sea: the situation in the South China Sea is generally stable, and there is no problem in the past, present and future of freedom and security in the South China Sea. China and ASEAN countries are fully and effectively implementing the South China Sea. The Declaration on the Conduct of All Parties, China has always been committed to resolve disputes through peaceful negotiations through negotiations with directly related parties.
Wang Fan said that it is an objective fact that China and the United States have contradictions on some issues. Because the interests of the two countries are different, the problems between China and the United States cannot be a one-time event. Over the past 30 years, Sino-US relations have accumulated a lot of valuable experience. It is necessary to establish a long-term communication mechanism and constantly seek new angles to solve problems. Strengthening dialogue and exchanges at all levels, expanding pragmatic cooperation in various fields, controlling and properly disagreeing, has long-term significance for promoting the continued development of bilateral relations in the right direction.
In addition, the White House just announced on the 12th of this month that President Obama will visit four Asian countries including Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines in April. In this regard, Huang Ping believes that whether Kerry’s trip to Asia does not go to Japan or Obama’s Asian trip does not come to China, it is inappropriate to over-interpret it. For the United States, which aims to focus on the world, US-China relations are the most important bilateral relationship. The establishment of a new type of big power relationship between China and the United States is a consensus within the United States. The United States is determined to return to Asia and must not bypass China. Obama and Xi Jinping will be followed in the next year. There are still several meetings, and I believe that it will inject new vitality and connotation into the relationship between China and the United States. (End)
