China’s advocacy of win-win cooperation marks the extension of its development philosophy to the rest of the world. Returning good for good and making concerted efforts to overcome difficulties are the spiritual mainstays of win-win cooperation and the soul of the new type of international relationship.

The US deployment of anti-missile systems in Eastern Europe could lead to a new arms race. Russia sees the moves as a harbinger of the eastward expansion of NATO and perhaps a springboard for the United States to expand and increase its presence into the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asian regions. This will not be constructive to easing tensions and creating stability in Europe.

The war against terrorists in Syria should not become a battlefield between the United States and Russia. If the United States and Russia choose confrontation, neither side will win, only wreaking havoc for the rest for the rest of the world.

Sino-US relations have gone beyond bilateral scope and are showing increasing global significance. Reality calls for both sides to consider each other’s reasonable concerns, learn from each other, and push aside barriers to their collaboration as they pursue common goals and interests.
