  The first video meeting between China and the US, which attracted worldwide attention, was held on the 16th.

During the meeting, President Xi Jinping put forward the three-point principle of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation on how China and the United States will get along in the new era, so as to steer the helm for the return of Sino-US relations to the track of healthy and stable development.

  In the past 50 years, Sino-US relations have been restored and developed, benefiting the two countries and the world.

In recent years, due to the U.S.'s wrong policy toward China, Sino-U.S. relations have suffered a comprehensive impact, which has greatly harmed the common interests of all countries in the world, including China and the U.S.

The return of China-US relations to the track of healthy and stable development is in line with the trend of the times of peaceful development and win-win cooperation. It is the common expectation of the people of the two countries and the world.

  Mutual respect is the basic prerequisite for the development of healthy and stable Sino-US relations.

China and the United States have different histories, cultures, and stages of development, and different interest demands. It is natural to have differences. The arrogant mentality of "superiority" does not help increase trust and resolve doubts and resolve contradictions.

China and the United States should strengthen dialogue and communication on the basis of equal treatment, constructively manage differences, accommodate each other's core interests and major concerns, adhere to the international norms of non-interference in internal affairs, and use political vision and practical actions to achieve mutual respect and seek common ground while reserving differences.

  Peaceful coexistence is an important bottom line for the development of healthy and stable Sino-US relations.

China will not sacrifice the interests of other countries, but will firmly follow the path of peaceful development and win-win cooperation. This is obvious to the international community.

Some U.S. politicians often designate China as an "imaginary enemy," but it is just a hegemonic "anxiety disorder" that is not objective and rational, and may also lead to the risk of misunderstanding and misjudgment.

Putting aside the narrow zero-sum game mentality and constructing a rational and objective understanding of China's strategy can truly find the correct way for the two countries to get along, keep the bottom line of non-conflict and non-confrontation, and inject more certainty and positive energy into the peaceful development and progress of mankind.

  Win-win cooperation is the world's expectation for the development of healthy and stable Sino-US relations.

The earth is large enough to accommodate China and the United States for their own and common development.

History and reality have fully proved that cooperation between China and the United States will benefit both, and struggle will hurt both, and cooperation is the only correct choice.

At present, the "global village" of mankind is facing many urgent challenges, and it is urgent for countries in the world, including China and the United States, to join hands in coping with it.

As the world's largest developing country and largest developed country, China and the United States should shoulder special and important responsibilities, adhere to mutual benefit, promote exchanges and cooperation at all levels and in all fields, and make greater contributions to world peace, stability, development and prosperity.

  Currently, Sino-US relations are at an important historical juncture, and this meeting of the heads of state has sent a strong signal to the two countries and the world.

With a long-term view, China and the United States should meet each other halfway and implement the spirit of the meeting between the two heads of state with practical actions to push Sino-US relations back on the right track of healthy and stable development.
