Our two sides have agreed to establish a good-neighborly parternership of mutual trust oriented towards the 21 century. To reach this goal, I would like to offer my observations as follows.
We should make the best use of the exsting mechanism of all-round dialogue and cooperation to broaden our exchanges and cooperation in all areas, at all levels and through all chanels, and strengthen contacts between leaders and people from all walks of life of our two sids to enhance our mutual trust, expand common ground and promote friendship.
We should give priority to our economic relations and trade, scientific and technological cooperation between our two sides in accordance with the priciple of drawing on each other’s comperative advantage and mutual benefit and reinforce the cooperation in the areas of resources, technology, marketing, banking, information, human resources development and investment to promote common progress.
We should intensify two-way dialogue, coordiantion and mutual support between two sides on major regional and international issues and in the united nations, APEC(Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation), AES ( Asia-Europe summit) and ARF (ASEAN Regional Forum) with a view to jointly safeguarding the legitimate
rights and interests of the developing countries and promoting their fair and equal participation in the internationational economic decision-making and operation without discrimination.
We should continue our efforts in handling the existing differences or disputes through friendly consultations on an equal footing and seek progressive solution to the problems. Those differences that cannot be solved for the time being may be shelved temporarily in the spirit of seeking common ground while putting aside differences so that they will not stand in the way of the establishment and development of good-neighborly partenership of mutual trust between the two sides.
China pursues unswervingly
an independent foreign policy of peace, taking peace as the ultimate goal. As the largest developing country in the world, with a relatively low level of productivity as a whole, china needs a long-term peaceful international environment and good-neighborly environment in particular to realize its modernization program through decades of arduous struggles. Even when china is developed, it will continue to adhere to the five priciples of peaceful co-existence, live with other countries in amity with the spirit of mutual respect and treating others as equals and never seeking hegemony. China will always be a staunch force in maintaining regional and global peace and stability.
