2014/11/07

In the evening of November 7, 2014, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met at the National Convention Center with Secretary of State John Kerry of the US, who was in China for the attendance of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Ministerial Meeting. The two sides exchanged views on the China-US relations, preparations for President Barrack Obama's visit to China and other issues.

Wang Yi said that China and the US are committed to building a new model of major-country relationship, which will not only benefit the two countries but also reassure the world. The two sides should put into practice the will of building a new model of major-country relationship to yield concrete results. The Chinese side attaches great importance to President Obama's upcoming attendance of the APEC Informal Leadership Meeting in China and his state visit to China. I hope that the two sides will work together to ensure the visit and the meeting between the two heads of state to achieve success and uplift the China-US relations to a new level.

Kerry expressed that the US side appreciates China's great efforts to host the APEC Informal Leadership Meeting and will maintain close cooperation with the Chinese side to ensure the success of the meeting. The US-China relations are one of the most influential bilateral relations in the world and the two countries have supported each other on major international and multilateral occasions, which is in line with the interests of both sides. President Obama is looking forward to his upcoming state visit to China. The US side is willing to make joint efforts with the Chinese side to ensure that President Obama's visit this time will achieve positive results and promote the building of a new model of major-country relationship between the US and China.

The two sides exchanged views on issues of common concern.
