Chinese President Xi Jinping is paying a State visit to the United States at the invitation of US President Barack Obama, which comes at a critical time. Demonstrating to the world that China-US relations will remain on the normal track of development, but shifting towards a ‘new model of major countries relations’.  

Chinese President Xi Jinping is paying a State visit to the United States at the invitation of US President Barack Obama from September 22 to 25.

Chinese President Xi Jinping is paying a State visit to the United States at the invitation of US President Barack Obama from September 22 to 25.

Xi's visit is of historic significance, which is expected to be a real opportunity for the two leaders to exchange in-depth views on important geo-political matters, despite the fact that there exist major differences in the fields of ideology, political systems, society, culture, and development levels between China and the US.

Nevertheless, China-US relations will maintain its momentum towards steady and healthy development to achieve win-win scenarios for both sides to minimize the impact of diplomatic disputes.

They can continue to negotiate on major issues of mutual interests through dialogues and to strengthen cooperation in a long run.

Xi has already taken six trips to the US and this time his first stop will be in Seattle. Civil diplomacy can be promoted through stronger development of China-US relations.

President Xi plans to attend the US-China Internet Industry Forum in Seattle sponsored by the Internet Society of China. He will attempt to dispel the US business communities' concerns over the Chinese cyber-network.

President Xi will also visit the United Nations, along with the Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin and South Korean President Park Geun-hye as they are to deliver speeches to commemorate the 70th anniversary of its founding on September 28.

Xi's speech is anticipated to influence future trends of world's diplomatic relations.

President Xi’s visit will help to enrich the connotations of the new-model of major countries relations.  Since this concept was proposed earlier, many achievements, such as the extension of mutual visa validity, mutual communications on major military operations, have been achieved.

The two sides will address sensitive issues in constructive methods to boost China-US military relations as well.

The rocky relationship between China and the US can be attributed to inefficient diplomatic mechanisms. Both sides lack highly-specialized consultations to coordinate and implement the consensus reached between the two leaders.

Xi Jinping and Barack Obama, will discuss face-to-face, the Ukrainian issue, cyber-network security, the North Korean nuclear concerns and much more. These issues are closely related to China-US security interests, but will also focus on the global perspective.

In the economic field, China and the US could reach a breakthrough to sign the Bilateral Investment Treaties (BIT), which can increase mutual trust and facilitate more investment to promote global trade and investment liberalization.

As the world’s two largest economies, both sides must shoulder heavy responsibilities to lead the world. China and the US should pursue non-conflict, non-confrontation, cooperation and win-win scenarios.

President Xi Jinping seeks to open a new chapter for China-US ties, which will be a milestone in building the new- model of major countries relations.

Overseas Chinese are looking forward to the visit. President Xi’s extensive contacts with American society could dispel doubts on consensus topics, such as the climate, investments, preventing nuclear proliferation, cyber-network security and joint counter-terrorism.

The State visit can inject new momentum for the  major powers’ bilateral relations. A few surprises could be in store as well.
