US Chinese Cooperation the Only Choice

Chinese President Xi Jinping told Donald Trump in their first conversation that cooperation was the only correct choice for ties between the world’s two largest economies, with the U.S. president-elect promising “one of the strongest relationships.”

Xi told Trump by telephone Monday that the two powers benefited from working together and needed to coordinate efforts to promote global economic growth, state broadcaster China Central Television reported. The pair agreed to meet soon, CCTV said.

“China and the U.S. — as the world’s biggest developing country and the biggest developed country, and the top two global economies — need to and can cooperate on many issues,” Xi said, according to CCTV. “At this moment, there is an important opportunity and massive potential for China-U.S. cooperation so that both sides need to strengthen coordination.”
