Pursue `positive` policy to build new ties: China
Beijing: China Wednesday cautiously welcomed Barack Obama`s re-election, hoping the US president would follow a "positive China policy" to build "new type of relations" and to manage differences and achieve win-win cooperation.
While outgoing leaders, President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao greeted Obama on his re-election, Xi Jinping, who is expected to take over the leadership from Hu after the 18th Communist Party Congress beginning here tomorrow greeted US Vice-President Joe Biden.
In his message, Hu noted that past four years through the concerted efforts China US relations has made positive progress.
"Maintaining a steady, healthy and stable development of China-US relations serves the fundamental interest of the two countries and the two peoples as well as peace stability and development of the Asia?Pacific region," he said apparently referring to Asia Pivot policy of Obama backing various countries which had maritime disputes with China in the South China Sea.
The Spokesman of the Communist Party Congress, Cai Mingzhao, who addressed a press meet here today ahead of tomorrow`s meeting spoke of the need of the US to following a "positive China policy" to firm up the bilateral ties.
Sino-US relation is one of the most important bilateral relationships in the world. Sustained and steady development of relations conforms to the fundamental interest of the two countries and bring peace and prosperity to Asia Pacific region and the world, he said.
"We hope the US side will continue to strengthen dialogue exchange mutual trust and cooperation respecting each other`s core interests and manage differences, he said, adding the two sides should build on new type of relations for a win-win cooperation.
Meanwhile, state-run Xinhua news agency in a commentary on Obama`s re-election said the US followed an "antiquated attitude in which an emerging player is considered as a threat to established ones and should be suppressed."
"If the US does not change its traditionally hegemonic ways of thinking, there will be more and more conflicts as China continues to develop and protect its own interests," it said.
"The US needs China, as well, not just in terms of economic development but also in other sectors. The global financial crisis revealed how globalisation has made countries so interdependent that no single country can survive in a bubble. China and the US have to work together for the sake of future world stability," it concluded.
