“China and the U.S. should work together to push forward the new model of major-country relationship by increasing dialogues, promoting mutual trust, expanding cooperation and controlling disputes … Good China-U.S. cooperation will serve as an anchor for global stability and a booster for world peace.” –President Xi Jinping
“In terms of traditional great-state relations, I do believe that the relationship between the United States and China is going to be the most critical. If we get that right and China continues on a peaceful rise, then we have a partner that is growing in capability and sharing with us the burdens and responsibilities of maintaining an international order.” –President Barack Obama
