In his just ended trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stressed his desire to work with Beijing to dampen regional tensions. Clearly, the United States considers China’s treatment of North Korea and Iran an important test of China’s rise.

The close consultation on the Korean issue in Secretary Kerry's first trip was important, writes Fan Jishe, but far from enough. To establish a strategically stable bilateral relationship, Secretary Kerry still has a long way to go, and his mission is not accomplished, yet.

The most notable manifestation of China’s peaceful development in the world will be the change of power structure, writes Ding Gang in People’s Daily. A transfer of power, as well as the redistribution of responsibilities and rights, will be in the interest of all countries.

Whether Secretary Kerry will clarify America’s position on the “pivot to Asia” is unclear, writes Dean Cheng. Kerry’s first visit to Asia could have provided much-needed clarification on this vital issue; instead, it likely only further muddies the waters.

As China prepares for Secretary Kerry's visit, Qian Liwei writes that it will take time and patience to convince China that it isn't the target of the U.S. rebalancing strategy in the Asia-Pacific region.

The US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, as President Barack Obama’s special envoy, flew to China, meeting Chinese new state leaders President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang, just two days after the closure of China’s NPC. His trip will be followed immediately by John Kerry, the new US Secretary of State.

As Secretary of State John Kerry prepares to head to Beijing for high-level bilateral discussions, Shen Dingli outlines the top strategic priorities for China and the US. While the visit is expected to address major security issues, could Kerry’s pragmatism be misinterpreted for greater cooperation?

Since Xi Jinping’s call for establishing a new type of major power relationship between China and the US in February 2012 as then China's Vice President, various explanations and heated discussions have arisen within both the Chinese and the US academic, as well as diplomatic circles. Yang Jiemian brings us an inspiring and enlightening vision with his “Four News and Three Mutuals;” the core of the New Type of Major Power Relations.

Since the incumbent Barack Obama has won re-election in the US presidential race, more consistency is expected in US foreign policy in the next four years. China has paid great attention to US rebalancing towards Asia and the increasing US presence in the region.
