China, U.S. commit to new-model ties


BEIJING, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) — China and the United States on Friday agreed to advance a new model of ties between major powers as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Beijing for talks.

“China is firmly committed to building a new model of major-country relationship between China and the United States together with the U.S. side,” Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his 70-minute meeting with Kerry at the Great Hall of the People.

China will continue to enhance dialogue, boost mutual trust and cooperation and properly handle differences in the new year so as to forge ahead with the lasting and healthy development of the ties, the president said.

Xi and U.S. President Barack Obama held a historic summit last June at the Annenberg Retreat in California, during which they reached an agreement on building a new type of major-country relationship which features no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect, cooperation and common prosperity.
