Pres­i­dent Xi meets Henry Kissinger, calls him ‘old friend of Chi­nese peo­ple’

Global Times US Edition - - TOPNEWS -

Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping met with for­mer US Sec­re­tary of State Henry Kissinger in Beijing on Thurs­day.

Call­ing Kissinger an old friend of the Chi­nese peo­ple, Xi hailed the “his­toric con­tribu- tion” he has made to China-US re­la­tions.

De­spite twists and turns, China-US re­la­tions have gen­er­ally main­tained steady progress over the past four decades, he said.

As the world un­der­goes un­prece­dented changes not seen in the past 100 years, it is the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity’s ex­pec­ta­tion that China-US re­la­tions will con­tinue to move for­ward in the right di­rec­tion, the Chi­nese pres­i­dent said.

“I agreed with Pres­i­dent Trump to meet dur­ing the up­com­ing G20 sum­mit in Ar­gentina, where the two sides can have an in-depth ex­change of views on is­sues of com­mon con­cern,” Xi said. Xin­hua
