"China has all along seen the Sino-US relations from a long-term perspective, and is ready to advance the bilateral relationship from a perspective of strategic significance. As an old Chinese saying goes, those who succeed in achieving long-term goals will find that they have also achieved short-term ones, and those who climb the top of the Mt. Tai will find other mountains under their feet. As the largest developing country and the largest developed country, China and the United States should be aware of both the history and the future when they design and manage the direction of their bilateral ties."

Storyline

China never wants to lead the world, and building partnership with different countries has become one of the highlights of China’s diplomacy, said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi at a luncheon of the 2017 China Development Forum, a top-level economic summit, in Beijing on Monday.

Wang said China has always performed its due international responsibilities, but stressed that the country never wants to lead the world.

"As the second largest economy in the world, and one of the permanent members of the UN Security Council, China is willing to proactively perform its due international responsibilities. By our own efforts, China is becoming a stabilizer of the international situation, an engine of world growth, positive energy for peaceful development and a new driver of global governance. But China has never intended to lead the world," said Wang.

In the globalization era when all nations are closely connected, it is important to cultivate cooperative partnership with others. And that is why China has made the direction of its diplomatic efforts to build partnership with other nations, a move that has been welcomed by most countries.

"China has devoted itself to developing and deepening partnership with other nations over these years. And our circle of friends keeps growing. By the end of last year, China had formed partnership of different kinds with 97 countries and international organizations, including partnerships with major countries, neighbors and developing countries. Partnership has become one of the important features and highlights of China's diplomacy," continued Wang.

When it comes to concerns over the past years that China and the United States might fall into the so-called Thucydides Trap between a rising power and an established one, Wang stressed that China is confident to improve dialog and cooperation to avoid that trap.

"China has all along seen the Sino-US relations from a long-term perspective, and is ready to advance the bilateral relationship from a perspective of strategic significance. As an old Chinese saying goes, those who succeed in achieving long-term goals will find that they have also achieved short-term ones, and those who climb the top of the Mt. Tai will find other mountains under their feet. As the largest developing country and the largest developed country, China and the United States should be aware of both the history and the future when they design and manage the direction of their bilateral ties," said Wang.
