Zhang Dejiang said that the China-US relations are one of the most important bilateral relations in the current world. During this visit, President Xi Jinping and Mr. President agreed to comprehensively strengthen bilateral cooperation and enhance coordination to jointly cope with international and global challenges, which will promote China and the US to achieve substantive progress in building the new model of major-country relationship. China and the US should recognize the difference between the two countries and focus the bilateral relations on harmonious coexistence and cooperation expansion.
