Xi's U.S. Visit to Create New Momentum for Ties

President Xi Jinping's upcoming state visit to the United States, scheduled for autumn this year, will infuse new momentum into the new model of major-country relations between the two countries, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday.

The two presidents will have another "productive discussion," which is expected to inject new momentum into building the new model of major-country relations between the two countries, he said at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People's Congress.

The undertaking of building the new model of major-country relations is "a pioneering effort" and will not be a smooth sailing, Wang said.

It is a "logical development" because it is in line with the common interests of both China and the United States and the trend of the times, he said.

As long as the two sides show sincerity, buttress the bottom line of no-conflict and no-confrontation, cement the foundation of mutual respect, "we can explore the immense possibility of win-win cooperation between China and the United States," he said.

"There is a Chinese saying, sincerity can work wonders," Wang said.

It is impossible that there exist no disagreements between two large countries like China and the United States. "Disagreements will not disappear even after we commit to build a new model of major-country relations," Wang said.

"But we shouldn't magnify problems through a microscope, we should instead use a telescope to look ahead to the future and make sure we move forward in the right direction," he said.

China and the United States interact the most in the Asia-Pacific region and the interests of the two intersect the most in the region, said Wang, adding that the building of the new model of major-country relations should begin in the Asia-Pacific region.

"If they work to establish and deepen strategic trust and have positive interactions, the two sides can jointly contribute to peace, stability and prosperity in the region," he said, adding that he believes China and the United States have common interests also in cyberspace security.
