Xi-Obama's upcoming meeting during G-20 summit to enhance mutual trust: Chinese envoy

Updated: Aug 22, 2016 17:44 IST

Washington, Aug. 22 (ANI): Chinese ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, has said that Chinese President Xi Jinping's forthcoming meeting with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama during the G-20 summit is expected to enhance mutual trust, widen win-win cooperation and deliver guidance for management on differences between both countries.

"The upcoming meeting between the two heads of state, just as every strategic talk they have held in recent years, will produce very positive and important influence on China-U.S. bilateral relations," Xinhua quoted Tiankai as saying.

Both the leaders are scheduled to meet during the G-20 summit in China's Hangzhou city next month.

Cui asserted that under the G-20 mechanism, the duo has already conducted very much coordination and cooperation for years.

He was of the opinion that as top two economies in the world, China and the United States have responsibilities to play a larger role in ensuring that the Hangzhou summit yield constructive results.

Recalling that more than 40 years ago, Hangzhou witnessed the negotiations for the first ever China-U.S. joint communique, the ambassador said, "The history of their relationship has fully proven that the two global heavyweights must cooperate with each other and must become cooperative partners."

He also revealed that Beijing has kept frequent contacts with the Washington on the South China Sea issue and said that the matter should not be allowed to define ties between the two, since neither have disputes over even one inch of territory nor fundamental clash of interests.

Earlier this month Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in his telephone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that upcoming meeting between Xi and Obama is the most important agenda of China-U.S. relations in the next stage.

Kerry also noted that United States is willing to work together with China to ensure a full success of the G-20 Hangzhou Summit.

Titled "Toward an Innovative, Invigorated, Interconnected and Inclusive World Economy", the upcoming G-20 summit will be held in Hangzhou City from September 4-5. (ANI)
