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.
There can be no more important subjects than China-US relations.
We have a capacity to solve world problems for many many years to come.
My feeling toward you is an incredibly warm one, as we said there is great chemistry, and I think we’re going to do tremendous things for both China and the United states.
A great responsibility has been placed on our shoulders. It’s truly a great responsibility. And I hope we can rise to the occasion and help our countries and our citizens reach their highest destinies and their fullest potentials.
In the coming months and years, I look forward to building an even stronger relationship between our two countries — China and the United States of America — and even closer friendships and relationships between the people of our two countries.
Though we come from different places and faraway lands, there is much that binds the East and West. Both of our countries were built by people of great courage, strong culture, and a desire to trek across the unknown into great danger.
It is my hope that the proud spirits of the American and Chinese people will inspire our efforts to achieve a more just, secure, and peaceful world, a future worthy of the sacrifices of our ancestors, and the dreams of our children.
Being the world’s biggest developing economy and developed economy, China and the United States are highly complementary rather than competitive.
We are willing to expand imports of energy and farm produce from the United States, deepen service trade cooperation. We hope the US side will increase exports of civil technology products to China. We will continue to encourage Chinese companies to invest in the United States. We also welcome US companies and financial institutions to participate in the “Belt and Road Initiative”.
Given the rapid growth of bilateral trade, it’s unavoidable to have friction. The two sides should uphold the principles of equality and mutual benefit, mutual understanding and accommodation, and handle disputes through dialogue and consultation.
Overseas-invested companies, including the US-invested firms, will enjoy a more open, transparent and standard market environment in China.
We want a vibrant trade relationship with China, we also want a fair and reciprocal one.
The US really has to change its policies because they’ve gotten so far behind on trade with China, and frankly with many other countries.
On the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, we have reiterated firm commitment to achieving denuclearization on the peninsula and maintaining the international nuclear non-proliferation regime.
The two sides will continue to fully and strictly implement UN Security Council resolutions and stay committed to solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue through dialogue and negotiation.
The United States hopes to work with China to push for denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.
The US side highly values China’s important role in the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
