President Hu Jintao on Thursday called on China and the United States to escape from the outdated thinking that major powers are predestined to engage in conflict.
Hu also said that the two countries should seek new ways to enhance their relations in remarks he made at the opening session of the China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing.
"Whatever changes may take place in the world, and no matter how the domestic situations in our two countries may evolve, China and the US should be firmly committed to advancing a partnership of cooperation," Hu said.
They should also strive to build new relations to reassure people from China and the United States and across the world, he said.
