Xi meets with US secretary of defense
    2018-06-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINESE President Xi Jinping on Wednesday met with visiting U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis in Beijing.

Xi said the world is undergoing major developments, transformation and adjustments. The trends of world multi-polarization and economic globalization are developing thoroughly, and countries have become even more interdependent.

The Chinese people are building a great modern socialist country, but China will stay on the path of peaceful development, Xi said, adding that China will neither pursue the path of expansionism and colonialism, nor cause chaos to the world.

Xi said China-U.S. relations are one of the most important bilateral ties in the world.

China and the United States should promote the development of bilateral ties based on the principle of mutual respect and win-win cooperation, Xi said.

“Our stance is steadfast and clear-cut when it comes to China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Xi said, adding that “any inch of territory passed down from ancestors can not be lost while we want nothing from others.”

Xi said he hoped the two militaries will strengthen communication, increase mutual trust, deepen cooperation, manage and control risks and promote military ties to be a stabilizer of bilateral relations.

Mattis said the United States attaches great importance to relations between the two countries and the two militaries, and military ties play a vital role in the bilateral relations.

Mattis said that guided by consensus reached by heads of state of the two countries, the United States is willing to strengthen strategic communication, expand mutually-beneficial cooperation, manage and control differences and risks, and prevent conflicts and confrontations, so as to enable military relations to be a constructive factor in promoting the development of bilateral ties.

Xu Qiliang, vice chairman of China’s Central Military Commission, met with Mattis in Beijing on Thursday.

The two sides should work together to develop their military ties into “a stabilizer for bilateral relations,” and contribute to regional and global peace and stability, Xu said.

Cooperation between the U.S. and China has been the mainstream in history, Mattis said, adding that the status and role of the two militaries in bilateral relations are essential.

Both sides also exchanged views on issues including the situation in Asia-Pacific, Taiwan and the South China Sea.
