In the past 30 years and more, Zhu said Sino-US relations have achieved historic progress, bringing huge benefits to the two peoples, as well as peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.

Zhu noted that today, as the world has entered the 21st century, China and the United States share common interests and responsibilities in combating terrorism and international crimes, tackling problems including worsening environment, and safeguarding peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region and the world for the purpose of promoting sound regional and global economic growth.

He stressed China would increase exchanges and understanding with US, while making efforts to develop constructive relations of co-operation, based on the three joint communiqués signed between the two countries.

He said in conclusion that he hoped the US National Committee on US-China Relations and friends from all circles in the United States would continue to make contributions to the improvement of bilateral ties.
