KUALA LUMPUR -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday that China is willing to work with the US side to make full preparations to ensure the success of Chinese President Xi Jinping's historic state visit to the United States in September.
The visit will not only make further arrangements for mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields and push forward the new major-country relations between the two countries, but will also jointly send positive signals to the international community, Wang said at a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry on the sidelines of the ongoing ASEAN Foreign Ministers' Meeting.
Wang said China is ready to step up cooperation with the United States in the fields of investment, military, climate change, finance, economy and trade, energy, hunt of corrupt officials, justice and public health.
China also wishes to join hands with the United States in strengthening coordination and collaboration on regional and international issues concerning the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, Iran nuclear program, Middle East, counter-terrorism and Afghanistan so as to play a constructive role in safeguarding world peace and stability.
Wang emphasized that it is all the more important now for both China and the United States to properly handle two major issues - strategic mutual trust and sound interaction in the Asia-Pacific region.
Noting that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the victory of World War II, Wang said it was the joint efforts of China, the United States and some other countries at that time that established an international order and system with the United Nations at its core.
China is a constructor and defender of the current international system, and as changes have taken place in the international situation, China is also willing to make concerted efforts with other countries to reform and improve the system so as to make it better accommodate the common wishes of all countries in the world.
