BEIJING -- Chinese President Xi Jinping is paying his first state visit since taking office in 2013 to the United States from Tuesday to Friday. The following are some key words mentioned by Xi when he talked about China-US relations:


In a summit in June 2013, Xi and his US counterpart Barack Obama charted a clear course for the future development of bilateral ties, agreeing to build a new type of major-country relationship featuring no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation.

During Obama's visit to China in November 2014, both leaders identified priority areas in building the new type of bilateral relations.

Prior to his visit, Xi said when meeting with a group of US business leaders and former US officials that China is committed to working with the United States to build a new type of major-country relationship, which if successful would benefit the two peoples as well as world peace and development.


Strategic trust constitutes a cornerstone for the "tower" of the new model (of major-country relationship), Xi said when meeting with Obama's national security advisor, Susan Rice, in September 2014.

"How the United States and China perceive each other's strategic intentions will directly affect their policies and relations," Xi said in his speech delivered at the opening ceremony of the sixth round of China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue and the fifth round of High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange in July 2014.

"China and the United States should increase dialogue, enhance mutual understanding and respect and take care of each other's core interests and major concerns to appropriately address disputes and reduce friction," he said.
