President Xi met with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken


Beijing, 26 April 2024 (TDI): President of China, Xi Jinping met with United State Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at the Great Hall of People in Beijing on Friday. 

President Xi while noting that this year marks 45th anniversary of China-US diplomatic relations, highlighted that over past 45 years the relationship has gone through winds and rains, and it has several important inspirations to offer. 

Xi emphasized that China and United States should be partners rather than rivals, help each other succeed rather than hurt each other, seek common ground and reserve differences rather than engage in vicious competition, and honor words with actions rather than say one thing but do the opposite. 

Furthermore, Chinese President said that he has proposed mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation to be the three overarching principles. They are both lessons learned from the past and a guide for the future. 

Moreover, he added that the planet is big enough to accommodate the common development and respective prosperity of China and the United States, but there are still issues to be addressed, which require further efforts.  

President Xi conveyed that Secretary’s visit this time was agreed upon between President Biden and him in their phone call several weeks ago. Xi said to Blinken, “I hope you will find it productive.”
