CAIRO - The recent agreement between China and the United States over a number of key economic and security issues will positively impact the international peace and security, Egyptian experts said.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has recently concluded a visit to the United States at the invitation of his American counterpart Barack Obama where both leaders agreed to enhance economic cooperation and reiterated commitment in maintaining strong bilateral ties in favor of world peace, stability and security.

"The two sides agreed that, as permanent members of the United Nations (UN) Security Council and countries with important global influence, China and the United States should remain committed to contributing to the peace, stability and prosperity of the world and the region," said a briefing from the Chinese Foreign Ministry on the main outcomes of the Xi-Obama talks.

The two powerful states also agreed to cooperate in fighting against terrorism, corruption and climate change besides their commitment to finance, trade and economic cooperation.

"China has good efforts in maintaining world peace, and reaching commitment and agreement with the United States in this regard is a very positive move for the world security," Heba Farag, professor of international relations at Cairo University, told Xinhua.

The professor said the two countries still have differences over some regional issues, but the understanding on fighting terrorism and maintaining world peace means "a balance in ties between the two main world powers."
