Xi Jinping tells Antony Blinken

“China welcomes a confident, open, prosperous and prosperous US.”

Beijing:

China is willing to cooperate with the United States, but the cooperation must be a two-way street, Chinese President Xi Jinping told US Secretary of State Antony Blinken at the meeting in Beijing on Friday.

President Xi stated that the multitude and complexity of challenges worldwide require the US and China to work together. President Xi affirmed that Beijing and Washington should be partners rather than rivals.

“China is willing to cooperate, but cooperation must be a two-way street. China is not afraid of competition, but competition should be about moving forward together rather than playing a zero-sum game. “China is determined not to form an alliance, and the US should not create small blocs, while both sides can have their friends and partners, but they should not attack, antagonize or harm the other side,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Business in a statement.

China welcomes a confident, open, prosperous and prosperous US, and hopes the US will also view China's development in a positive light, it added.

“Over the past 45 years, the relationship has been through storms and rain, and the two sides can learn some important lessons: China and the United States should be partners rather than rivals; helping each other succeed instead of hurting each other; preserving common ground and differences rather than engaging in cruel competition by honoring words with actions rather than saying one thing but doing another,” the statement said.

President Xi further expressed hope that both countries will continue to actively work to truly stabilize, improve and promote bilateral relations.

'As the Chinese saying goes: 'No progress means regression.' This also applies to China-US relations. It is hoped that the two teams will continue to actively work towards realizing San Francisco's vision, so as to truly stabilize and improve the situation. and advance bilateral relations,” Xi said.

Blinken noted that since President Biden and President Xi met in San Francisco, the US and China have made good progress in their cooperation in areas such as bilateral interactions, counter-narcotics, artificial intelligence and people-to-people exchanges. The multitude and complexity of the challenges facing the world require the US and China to work together, the statement said.

The visit is aimed at strengthening the fractious relationship between the two countries despite disputes over the economy, national security and geopolitical frictions, according to the New York Times.

The US State Department said in its statement that the US and China had “in-depth, substantive and constructive discussions” on key priorities in bilateral relations and on a range of regional and global issues.

Secretary Blinken emphasized that the U.S. will continue to use diplomacy to advance areas of difference and cooperation that matter to the American people and the world, as part of responsibly managing competition with the People's Republic of China (China).

He also urged further progress in implementing leaders' commitments at the Woodside Summit on key issues, including promoting counter-narcotics cooperation to stem the global flow of synthetic drugs – including fentanyl and their precursor chemicals – to disrupt the United States, improving military-to-military communications. to avoid miscalculations and conflicts, and to initiate conversations on managing the risk and security challenges associated with advanced forms of artificial intelligence, the State Department added.

Earlier on April 24, Blinken, who is making his second visit to China this year, said he was in China “to make progress on issues that matter most to the American people, including reducing the fentanyl trade.”

Blinken's visit follows a visit to China by US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen earlier this month.
