中美新型大國關係 "不沖突、不對抗,相互尊

Thank you. Now I will be glad to take your questions.


We are also ready to cooperate with the United States on otherregional hotspot issues such as Afghanistan. Ten days ago, thesecond China-US collaborative training course for Afghan diplomatswas launched here in DC. I sent a congratulatory message to theprogram. Afghanistan is now in a phase of crucial transition.Whether the country can proceed smoothly with domesticreconciliation and reconstruction concerns the common interests ofChina, the United States and other countries in the region.China-US cooperation on Afghanistan has just started; there isgreat potential and room for enhanced cooperation. If our twocountries can work with each other and bring out our respectivestrength, we can turn the issue into a new highlight in ourbilateral cooperation.




It gives me great pleasure to be back at the BrookingsInstitution and share with you my thoughts on the way toward a newmodel of major-country relations between China and the UnitedStates. And I will be happy to take your questions.

Not long ago, President Xi and President Obama met again on themargins of the G20 summit in St Petersburg. The two leadersreiterated their commitment to this new model of major-countryrelationship. Yet the building of such a relationship requires notonly political guidance from our leaders, but also and moreimportantly, the involvement and support of people across thesociety in both countries, including the continuous intellectualinput from the academia. The Brookings Institution is one of themost influential think-tanks in the United States. According to myAmerican friends, to find out what the US government will do next,one only has to look at what the Brookings Institution is workingon. The Brookings Institution has always had a keen interest in USrelations with China. For this purpose, it has set up John L.Thornton China Center, bringing together many renowned experts onChina-US relations and doing a great deal of work in promotingbilateral ties. I hope and I am confident that as China and theUnited States build this new model of major-country relationship,the Brookings Institution will continue to play a positive role andmake an important contribution.


Third, we need to enhance people-to-people and cultural exchangeand put this new model of relationship on stronger public support.State-to-state relations, at the end of the day, are aboutpeople-to-people relations. In today's world, public opinion hasincreasingly become a significant factor shaping or even definingbilateral relationship. Friendship between peoples leads to amitybetween nations and vice versa. Therefore, the success of ourendeavor to build a new model of major-country relationship hingesgreatly upon the understanding, involvement and support of themajority of our two peoples. With this in mind, we need toencourage and expand interactions in various areas and betweenvarious groups, including families, communities, schools, and NGOsat the grass root level, so that our peoples will understand eachother better and deepen friendship. We need to strengthen culturalexchange and as the two sides meet and interact, they willgradually achieve mutual tolerance and inclusiveness. We also needto lead public opinion in respective countries so that the voiceadvocating China-US friendship and cooperation will become themainstream and public support for our relations will growstronger.



This is a year of great significance in China-US relations. LastJune, the two presidents held a successful and historic meeting inAnnenberg Estate, California. The most important outcome is thatChina and the United States agreed to build a new model ofmajor-country relations. The agreement is strategic, constructiveand path-breaking in nature. It has charted the future course forour relations. It will surely produce a positive and profoundimpact on the Asia-Pacific and, indeed, the evolution of theinternational landscape.


Ladies and Gentlemen,



Before I start, I wish to thank the Brookings Institution andPresident Strobe Talbott for graciously hosting this event. Thisgives me the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones.Over the past few years, each time I came to the United States, Iwould meet your experts and scholars. Of course, I wore the hat ofthe Minister of the Taiwan Affairs Office back then and ourdiscussion focused on the question of Taiwan. I remember thatwhenever some of you raised questions about foreign policy issues,my reply was "Sorry, they are beyond my portfolio." But today, youcan rest assured that I will not say "Sorry" again no matter whatforeign policy questions you raise.


Dear Friends,

( 王毅外長在佈魯金斯壆會的演講 )

"Mutual respect" is a basic principle for this new model. Welive in a world of rich diversity. For China and the United States,two major countries different in social system, history and cultureyet connected by intertwined interests, mutual respect is all themore important. Only by respecting each other's system and pathchosen by their people, as well as each other's core interests andconcerns can we seek common ground while reserving differences and,on that basis, expand common ground and dissolve differences sothat China and the United States will be able to live together inharmony.

Recently, China has agreed to carry out substantive negotiationswith the United States on the bilateral investment treaty (BIT) onthe basis of pre-establishment national treatment and negativelist. This shows the great sincerity and resolve of the Chinesegovernment. We will advance reform and opening-up and deepenChina-US economic cooperation and trade. This will open up newprospects for bilateral business ties. There is also a need for thetwo countries to tap cooperation potential in such fields asenergy, environmental protection, urbanization, bio-tech andinfrastructure. China takes US concerns on market access and IPRprotection seriously and is prepared to take measures to addressthem. At the same time, China hopes the United States will ease itscontrol over high-tech export to China and give fair treatment toChinese companies investing in this country.


Second, we need to promote practical cooperation to put this newmodel of relationship on more shared interests. Over more than fourdecades since the establishment of our diplomatic relations, fastgrowing economic cooperation and trade have brought huge benefitsto each country's development. They have served as a stabilizerthat enables China-US relations to forge ahead despite winds andwaves. Today, bilateral trade is almost 500 billion US dollars andmutual investment more than 80 billion. According to the latestreport from China-US Exchange Foundation, by 2022, our twocountries will become each other's top trading partner. By then, USexport to China will exceed 450 billion dollars, which means over2.5 million jobs created in this country. The number of Chinesetourists visiting the United States will grow to 10 million from1.5 million in 2012. These are conclusions of the joint study byChinese and American scholars. They will give a strong impetus tothe historic process of this new model of relationship.



President Xi Jinping has laid out a clear vision for the newmodel. In his words, the essential features of this model includenumber one, "no conflict or confrontation", number two, "mutualrespect" and number three, "win-win cooperation". This answers thefirst question.



On Palestine and Israel, China has promoted peace talks in aresponsible manner, and stands ready to work closely with theUnited States to push the two sides to make concerted efforts. Onthe Iranian nuclear issue, China and the United States havemaintained close communication both bilaterally and through P5+1.There have emerged positive factors in Iranian nuclear dialogue. Weshould seize the opportunities to work for early, substantiveprogress in the dialogue.

On climate change, our two sides have set up a climate changeworking group within the S&ED framework. As Chinais committed to deepening economic structural readjustment andaccelerating the shift of growth model, addressing climate change,meets its own need of sustainable development in the first place.We are ready to enhance cooperation with the United States onenvironmental protection, energy conservation and emissionsreduction, and alternative and renewable energy, take part inrelevant climate change negotiations in a responsible manner andjointly contribute to sustainable development.

Second, China and the United States should work together toproduce substantive results in our cooperation over hotspot issuesin the Asia-Pacific. If we can succeed in doing so, we will be ableto accumulate experience for strategic cooperation on a globalscale, and demonstrate to the rest of the world our ability andresolve to jointly safeguard regional peace and stability. A casein point is the Korean nuclear issue. China and the United Stateshave built much consensus on the issue. It is our commonresponsibility to advance denuclearization on the Korean Peninsulaand maintain peace in Northeast Asia. Yesterday was the eighthanniversary of the September 19 Joint Statement. The day beforeyesterday, China hosted an international workshop in Beijing tomark the tenth anniversary of the Six-Party Talks. China believesthat dialogue and negotiation is the right path toward anuclear-weapon-free Peninsula, and that the Six-Party Talks haveturned out to be an effective mechanism for dialogue. The partiesconcerned should recommit themselves as soon as possible to theJoint Statement, and work together to create the necessaryconditions for the restart of the Six-Party Talks. The US positionon this is of vital importance. China is ready to keep in touchwith the US side.


On cyber security, a peaceful, secure, open and cooperativecyber space is in the interest of all countries in the world,including China and the United States. China firmly opposes anybehavior that disrupts order in cyberspace and endangers cybersecurity. As a matter of fact, China is a victim of hacking andother cyber attacks. To safeguard cyber security, we needcooperation instead of finger-pointing. The first meeting ofChina-US cyber working group made a good beginning. We need to keepup constructive dialogue and promote the formulation ofinternational cyber rules to help ensure cyber security.




Toward a New Model of Major-Country Relations Between China andthe United States


With the agreement come two questions. First, what is this newmodel of relations about? And second, how to make it a reality?

Fourth, we need to strengthen cooperation in international andregional hotspots and global issues and put this new model ofrelationship on greater common responsibilities. The United Statesis the biggest developed country while China is the biggestdeveloping country in the world. The two countries shareever-growing converging interests and shoulder increasingly greatercommon responsibilities on such major issues as maintainingregional and international stability and promoting sustainabledevelopment of mankind. Joint contribution to world peace andstability and progress of civilization is what the internationalcommunity expects of our two countries. It should, therefore, alsobe an inherent feature of this new model of relationship. China isprepared to engage in all-dimensional cooperation with the UnitedStates at regional and global levels. What we seek is not theso-called "G2", but each complementing the other with itsrespective advantages. China is ready to shoulder internationalresponsibilities commensurate with its national strength andrealities, and together with the United States, offer more qualitypublic goods for the international community. China and the UnitedStates can cooperate on any issue. We may not always see eye toeye, but that should not prevent us from talking to each other. Aslong as we truly act in the shared interests of the two countriesand for the benefit of regional and global stability andprosperity, our positions will get closer and our strategic trustwill surely get enhanced.

First, China and the United States should genuinely respect andaccommodate each other's interests and concerns in theAsia-Pacific. China respects the traditional influence andimmediate interests of the United States in the Asia-Pacific. Wehave never thought about pushing the US out of the region. Rather,we hope the United States will play a positive and constructiverole in safeguarding peace, stability and development in theAsia-Pacific. As President Xi Jinping aptly pointed out, "The vastPacific Ocean is broad enough to accommodate our two bigcountries." The Asia-Pacific has been the home and root of theChinese nation for thousands of years. Therefore, we hope theUnited States will also respect China's interests and concerns.



"Win-win cooperation" is the only way to turn the vision into areality. There is an enormous need and vast potential for bilateralcooperation in all fields. Besides, the world certainly needs Chinaand the United States, two major countries with great influence, towork together and contribute on issues ranging fromcounterterrorism to cyber security, from nuclear non-proliferationto climate change, and from peace in the Middle East to Africa'sdevelopment. Win-win progress is only possible when both countriesare committed to growing cooperation. Moreover, such win-winoutcome should not just be beneficial to China and the UnitedStates, it should also be beneficial to all countries in theworld.

First, we need to enhance strategic trust to put this new modelof relationship on a more solid foundation. We have all alongemphasized that China's development is peaceful in nature. We havenever had the strategic intention to challenge or even replace theUnited States for its position in the world. We truly wish to worktogether with the United States and all other countries for peaceand common development. We are aware of US statement that it doesnot see China as a threat or intend to contain China; instead, itwishes to see a strong and stable China. This is right. As long asChina and the United States can both stick to this strategicdirection in their action, we will certainly build up strategictrust and strengthen the foundation for this new model ofrelationship.

"No conflict or confrontation" is the prerequisite for the newmodel of major-country relations between us. According to somestudy of history, there have been about 15 cases of rise ofemerging powers. In 11 cases, confrontation and war broke outbetween the emerging and the established powers. However, we nowlive in a different world. China and the United States and in factall countries in the world are part of a community of sharedinterests. Countries are increasingly interconnected. Neither of uswill benefit from confrontation. War will get us nowhere. "Noconflict or confrontation" means that we need to follow the trendof globalization, reverse negative projections of China-USrelations, address strategic distrust and build confidence in thefuture of China-US relations.

Fifth, we need to prioritize our cooperation on Asia-Pacificaffairs and start the building of this new model of relationshipfrom the Asia-Pacific region. The Asia-Pacific is the world'sfastest-growing and most promising region; it is also home to mostof the hotspot issues. China and the United States have moreconverging interests and frequent interactions in the Asia-Pacificthan anywhere else. Therefore, it is both possible and imperativethat our two countries start the building of this new model ofrelationship from the Asia-Pacific. Just think: if China and theUnited States can avoid conflict and confrontation in theAsia-Pacific, there is no reason we cannot co-exist in peace inother parts of the world; if China and the United States canrespect each other and conduct win-win cooperation on Asia-Pacificaffairs, there is no reason we cannot work together on otherissues. But how to turn the Asia-Pacific into the "testing ground"for our new model of relationship? I think the following two pointsare extremely important.








Ladies and Gentlemen,






一、選定居住之所,soul by ludacris sl49 耳機

On Syria, China is firmly opposed to the use of chemical weaponsby any country or individual. We believe that political settlementis the only right way out in defusing the Syrian crisis. We supportan early launch of the process to destroy Syria's chemical weapons.At the same time a Geneva II should be held as soon as possible,thus bringing the Syrian issue back to the track of politicalsettlement.


Now let me turn to the second question, how can we make the newmodel of relations a reality. Indeed, this will be a systemicproject that requires ideas and efforts of people from all walks oflife in both countries. It also needs the sustained politicalresolve, persistent commitment and tireless efforts of bothsides.

The Taiwan question concerns China's sovereignty and territorialintegrity. It bears on the national sentiments of the 1.3 billionChinese people. Right now, cross-Straits relations enjoy a momentumof peaceful development. It is the common desire of people on bothsides of the Straits to have peace rather than war, cooperationrather than confrontation, and exchanges rather than estrangement.Gradual integration of the two sides through two-way interactionsand cooperation will lead to ultimate reunification. This is ahistorical trend that no one can stop. For many years, the Taiwanquestion has been a liability in China-US relations that underminesmutual trust and disrupts cooperation. However, if the UnitedStates can go along with the prevailing trend of peacefuldevelopment of cross-Straits relations, and genuinely appreciateand respect China's efforts to oppose separation and achievepeaceful reunification, the issue – once aliability and negative factor in our relationship– will be turned into an asset and a positivefactor, providing guarantee to the long-term, steady growth ofChina-US relations and opening prospect for all-roundcooperation.
