(ECNS) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday that China does not have a plan to surpass or unseat the United States, and the United States should not scheme to suppress and contain China.
Xi made the remarks during a summit with U.S. President Joe Biden at Filoli Estate, a country house approximately 40 km south of San Francisco, California.
Xi pointed out that mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation are the lessons that the two sides have learned from 50 years of China-U.S. relations as well as the conflicts between major countries in history. Both sides should put in a lot of effort to follow them.
As long as the two countries respect each other, coexist in peace and pursue win-win cooperation, they will be fully capable of rising above differences and find the right way for the two major countries to get along with each other, Xi added.
