China News Agency, Washington, July 28. Qin Gang, the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, who arrived in Washington on the 28th, delivered a speech to the Chinese and American media.
He said that a healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations is the common expectation of the people of the two countries and the international community.
Qin Gang said that 50 years ago, Dr. Kissinger visited China secretly and knocked on the door of China.
At the time of the Cold War, China and the United States were isolated from each other, and the far-sighted Dr. Kissinger had to go to China in a concealed way.
Today, 50 years later, as the 11th Chinese ambassador to the United States, I can openly embark on the right path to the United States.
Times have changed, which makes people sigh.
"I believe that the door to Sino-US relations has been opened, and it will not be closed. This is the trend of the times, the general trend, and the aspirations of the people."
Qin Gang pointed out that China-US relations have gone through ups and downs for half a century, and along the way, they have not only profoundly affected the two countries, but also profoundly changed history and the world.
At present, the world is undergoing major changes unseen in a century.
As two big countries with different histories and cultures, different social systems, and different stages of development, China and the United States are entering a new round of mutual discovery, cognition, and adjustment, seeking ways to get along with each other in a new era.
China-US relations are again at a new critical juncture. They face many difficulties and challenges, but also have huge opportunities and potentials. Where to go is related to the well-being of the two peoples and the future of the world.
A healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations is the common expectation of the people of the two countries and the international community.
Qin Gang said that the right path in the world is the vicissitudes of life.
President Xi Jinping said, every mountain makes a road, and water builds a bridge.
President Biden said that everything is possible.
In accordance with the spirit of the conversation between the two heads of state on New Year’s Eve, I will build a bridge of communication and cooperation with all walks of life in the United States, maintain the foundation of China-US relations, safeguard the common interests of the people of China and the United States, and jointly push China-US relations back to the right track of development The Sino-US approach of mutual respect, equal treatment, win-win cooperation, and peaceful coexistence has changed from possible to reality.
The Chinese Embassy in the United States announced on the afternoon of the 28th that Qin Gang arrived in the United States on the same day as his new post.
Cui Tiankai, the former ambassador to the United States, left his post and returned to China on June 23.
Qin Gang was born in March 1966, a native of Tianjin.
He was stationed in the UK three times.
From 2005 to 2010, Qin Gang served as Deputy Director of the Information Department and Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and later served as Director of the Information Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Director of the Protocol Department. In 2018, he became the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.
