Xi's US visit to deepen connotation of new-model of major-country ties
Despite resurrected talks of pessimism in Washington over China-US ties, many Chinese and US experts agreed that Chinese President Xi Jinping's upcoming state visit to the US could help dispel the qualms and inject fresh momentum into bilateral ties.
During a recent meeting with US National Security Advisor Susan Rice in Beijing, Xi reiterated China's commitment to building a new model of major-country relations with the United States, featuring no-conflict and no-confrontation, mutual respect, and win-win cooperation.
