LOS ANGELES: China and the United States can jointly tackle problems in three areas – the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change and the world’s economic recovery – and many more if they cooperate and engage in dialogue, China’s diplomat in Southern California said.
Speaking at a webinar organised by the Pacific Council on International Policy, China’s Consul General in Los Angeles Zhang Ping called on the US to help solve disputes between the world’s two largest economies, accept the reality of China’s development and reach peaceful coexistence with China.
Zhang also shared his thoughts about how it was possible for the two nations to cope with differences in their social systems and ideologies and still get along.
“The Pacific Ocean is big enough to accommodate both China and the US, ” Zhang said, citing remarks made by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2017 on China-US relations.
Zhang was joined by webinar moderator Jerrold Green, president and CEO of the Pacific Council – a think tank headquartered in Los Angeles – and other council members. — China Daily/ANN
