China to buy US goods to reduce surplus
Updated: 2005-08-31 07:18

US Congress also reacted with alarm when China's CNOOC tried to buy Unocal, which raised concerns about national security.

"It should be viewed as a commercial activity ... We hope (future energy cooperation) will not be mixed with political factors," He said.

"We have no intention of fighting against any country in the world for energy supplies."

Despite their differences, the two countries have cooperated on geopolitical issues, notably on six-party talks hosted by Beijing to try to defuse the crisis over North Korea's nuclear arms program.

Some analysts also credit Beijing and Washington for keeping the potential flashpoint of Taiwan quiet for much of this year.

"We hope the U.S. can see clearly that the situation in the Taiwan Strait is still extremely sensitive and extremely complicated," He said.

"We hope the United States can see clearly the danger and harm Taiwan independence activities may bring everybody," He said, adding that Washington should stop selling advanced weapons to Taiwan to avoid sending the wrong signal to separatists.

Hu is also scheduled to visit Canada from September 8-11 en route to Mexico from September 11-13. He will attend the annual gathering of world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly in New York from September 14-16 and stop over in Vancouver from September 16-17 on his way home.
