Chinese President Xi Jinping raised six propositions to further China-US relations in Washington, the second stop of his visit to the US.

Xi said both countries should make full use of dialogue mechanisms such as the China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue, the China-US High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange, and the China-US Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade. The goal is to continuously play an essential role in promoting high-level strategic communication and China-US relations.

In addition, Xi suggested China and the US expand and deepen cooperation in economy and trade, military interaction, anti-terrorism, energy, environmental protection and infrastructure.

He said both sides should establish closer ties in cultural exchanges to uphold the foundation for bilateral relations.

He also said both sides should pay mutual respect to the differences in each country's history, cultural traditions, social system and development path. In this way, the two countries can learn from each other and pursue common goals.

Xi said the two countries should deepen dialogues and cooperation in Asia Pacific region.

Xi said China and the US should work together to handle regional and global challenges to enrich the strategic connotations of China-US relations and provide the international community with more public services.
