Chinese Ambassador Sets the Record Straight on Importance of Xi-Trump Meeting

Nov. 16, 2017 (EIRNS)—Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai, obviously somewhat upset about the fake news coverage of the Xi-Trump summit in Beijing by the U.S. media, yesterday underlined the tremendous significance of the summit and the long-term implications for U.S.-China relations, speaking in Washington.
Ambassador Cui was also himself instrumental in the lead-up to the summit with preparations here and in Beijing. He began by stating that President Trump was the first world leader to hold a state visit in the aftermath of the 19th Party Congress. He was also the first world leader who had sent his congratulations to the Chinese President at the conclusion of this very successful congress. Cui said, “And it was the first time for an American President to do that, and we appreciated that.”
During the meetings, President Xi Jinping and President Donald Trump “held an in-depth exchange of views and reached an important consensus which set the tone and the direction for the relationship,” Cui said.

“The two leaders agreed to stay in close contact with each other and to provide strategic guidance for the bilateral relationship. And the two sides decided to enhance high-level exchanges and make best use of the high-level dialogues established. The two also agreed to increase mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields and manage possible differences on the basis of mutual respect. The two also agreed to promote mutual understanding and friendship between the two peoples and to promote even better cooperation at a sub-national level,”

he said.
“The two sides also agreed to join hands in response to global, international and regional issues, including the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue,” Cui continued. Cui also underlined the importance of the many economic agreements that were signed. He stressed that $250 billion of the total agreements was “not a small number.” And while many of these still remain on the level of memoranda of understanding, he explained that

“such a long and impressive list is the outcome of the joint efforts of the two governments and the two business communities. As long as there is sufficient political will, (the deals) will be implemented and benefit our two peoples.”

He reiterated the fundamentals of China’s foreign policy that it “will never seek hegemony, nor will we pursue expansionist policies.” China’s foreign policy “aims at a new type of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation.” “China is ready to make greater contributions to world peace and development,” Cui said,

“and through consultation and collaboration with others, help improve and enhance global governance. We seek global partnerships, and we are ready to expand convergence of interests with other countries.”

Ambassador Cui was speaking at a gala dinner of the U.S.-China Policy Foundation, which awarded him with an Outstanding Achievement Award.


Trump Visit Launches New Era in U.S.-China Relations

by William Jones
Nov. 12—The three-day visit of President Donald Trump to the People’s Republic of China for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping has laid the basis for an entirely new type of relationship between the United States and China, and built the framework for cooperation for a policy of global development. Not since President Nixon went to China on his first historic visit 45 years ago, has a visit of a U.S. President to China had such profound implications for the world.
Before President Trump left on his 11-day trip to Asia, the media and the pundits were filled with articles claiming that the President was going to create a provocation against the DPRK (North Korea), give a dressing down to the South Korean President for being soft on the DPRK, and wrangle on trade issues with the Chinese President.
But none of that happened. On the contrary, in his encounters with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and most decisively with Chinese President Xi Jinping, President Donald Trump proved himself an eminent statesman, leaving each leader with the clear feeling that this visit by the U.S. President had been a tremendous success.

While President Trump’s task on his lengthy Asia tour was in part to reassure allies that the United States was not turning its back on this all-important region of the world, he did not come in as the belligerent leader of some threatening coalition, but rather as a friend and collaborator with each leader. While he minced no words in speaking to the South Korean National Assembly about his disdain for the policies of the North Korean leadership, at the same time he pointed out that there could be a “brighter path for North Korea,” if it were willing to relinquish its nuclear ambitions. More important, he came to Asia with the understanding that the rising importance of China in the world community was not a threat but an opportunity—an opportunity to change the direction of politics, toward a more peaceful and prosperous world for all peoples.
What the media and the pundits also ignored in their ominous predictions, was the fact that the U.S. President had already established a substantial and close relationship with the Chinese President, as a result of their four personal meetings and numerous phone calls and messages. President Trump had sent congratulations to President Xi after the 19th Party Congress accepted Xi’s new direction in policy with his proposal for a “new era” in China’s foreign policy, and had incorporated the goals of President Xi’s seminal Belt and Road Initiative into the Communist Party’s constitution. And President Trump’s unusual invitation earlier this year to President Xi and his wife to visit him at his home in Mar-a-Lago, provided an extraordinary personal touch, the significance of which did not go unnoticed by the Chinese leader.

More Than a State Visit

And the Chinese President more than reciprocated this kindness in the welcome he gave to President Trump and his wife, Melania, in Beijing. It was labeled a “state visit-plus” by the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, and a “state visit-plus-plus” by President Xi! Neither level of welcome has ever occurred before.
In an extraordinary gesture, the historic Forbidden City, previously the home of the Chinese emperors, was entirely closed, and it was prepared as the venue for a private dinner with a foreign dignitary Nov. 8. While many major foreign guests, and in particular heads of state, often visit the Forbidden City when they first come to Beijing, this was the first time since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 that a foreign dignitary was invited to dine in a palace of the Forbidden City. The President and his wife were also treated to three performances of Peking Opera plays at the Belvedere of Pleasant Sounds, the largest opera theater in the Forbidden City, initially built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) in the Qing Dynasty to entertain the members of the imperial family. The three performances they viewed were Spring Seedlings in the Pear Garden, The Drunken Concubine, and the ever-popular The Monkey King, who in the famous Ming novel accompanied the monk Xuanzang on his epic journey to the West. President Trump posted a picture of the two Presidential couples with the Chinese actors, as the main banner on his Twitter account!
And the guide for the President and his wife on a tour of the Palace Museum located in the Forbidden City, was none other than President Xi himself. Both President Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, took President Trump and his wife, Melania, on a tour through the Forbidden City. And what better guide for such a tour than the Chinese President, whose keen sense of the history of the Chinese people is so much a fabric of his own being. More than a tour through a famous monument, this was undoubtedly an extremely important exposure for the U.S President to the long arc of Chinese history and culture—a culture which most profoundly shapes the attitudes and the policies of China today.
President Trump in turn showed President Xi and his wife a videotape of his 6-year old granddaughter, Arabella Kushner, who started learning Chinese when she was 18 months old. Arabella had already performed for President Xi and his wife when they visited President Trump in Mar-a-Lago in April, and has become quite a celebrity in China ever since. The couples viewed the video on an IPad while in the Forbidden City. Arabella greeted “Grandpa Xi” and “Grandma Peng” in Chinese, characterizing the closeness and respect exhibited by Trump family members toward the Chinese couple following the Mar-a-Lago visit. She then sang several songs and recited from a number of Chinese poems which she knew by heart—to the delight of her audience.
The next day, President Trump and the First lady arrived at the Great Hall of the People for President Trump’s formal meetings with President Xi. He was greeted at the bottom of the steps by President Xi and Madame Peng, and was then escorted by the Chinese President to a reviewing stand outside the Great Hall where he reviewed military formations assembled there in his honor and received a 21-gun salute. The two presidents then individually greeted all the members of both delegations lined up before the Great Hall, before proceeding into the building for the formal discussions.
The major issues to be covered, and those most reported on in the media were: trade, the DPRK nuclear program, and the future development of U.S.-China relations. But they also touched on the Middle East, Afghanistan, counterterrorism, anti-drug cooperation, non-proliferation, and nuclear security. The two presidents committed to make the most of the four high-level dialogue mechanisms: the diplomatic and security dialogue, the comprehensive economic dialogue, the social and people-to-people dialogue, and the cyber-security dialogue, in order to achieve greater results in their cooperation.
In remarks to the press conference following their meeting, President Xi underlined the importance of the enhanced economic cooperation between the two countries. “It is necessary to formulate and launch an economic cooperation plan for the next phase to have continued in-depth discussion on trade imbalance, export, investment environment, market openness, and other issues, and work to support practical cooperation in energy, infrastructure, the Belt and Road Initiative, and other areas.”
Following the meeting, the two presidents signed agreements and memoranda of understanding worth $250 billion. China agreed to purchase 300 aircraft from Boeing. China has also signed an agreement to purchase natural gas from Alaska. In this agreement between the State of Alaska and Alaska Gasline Development Corporation, on the one side, and Chinese Sinopec, China Investment Corporation, and the Bank of China, on the other, China will invest $43 billion, which is expected to create 12,000 new jobs in the U.S.A. There is also an $84 billion plan for China to invest in shale gas and chemical manufacturing projects in West Virginia. A memorandum of understanding was signed to that effect. Another deal involves China purchasing Liquified Natural Gas from Louisiana. All in all, over 37 major deals were signed, including deals by three companies heavily involved in the Belt and Road Initiative—Caterpillar, Honeywell, and General Electric—and Dow Chemical Company.

Partnership and Dialogue of Cultures

But far more important than the individual trade deals coming out of these negotiations, was the strengthening of the personal relationship between the leaders of two of the most important countries in the world. In his comments to the press following the meetings, President Trump underlined the real significance of the visit: “The United States, working with China and other regional partners, has an incredible opportunity to advance the cause of peace, security, and prosperity all across the world. It’s a very special time, and we do indeed have that very, very special opportunity. A great responsibility has been placed on our shoulders, President—it’s truly a great responsibility—and I hope we can rise to the occasion and help our countries and our citizens reach their highest destinies and their fullest potentials.”
He then expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the warmth shown him by the Chinese President in the course of the visit. “I want to thank you again—you’re a very special man—for your gracious hospitality. I send my warmest regards to your citizens. I honor their heritage and celebrate their great, great possibilities and potential for the future.”
After the day’s events, the President and his delegation were invited to a state banquet held in the Golden Hall Room in the Great Hall of the People. There they viewed scenes from the previous meetings of the two presidents at Mar-a-Lago and clips from President Trump’s present visit to Beijing, and, to everyone’s delight, were shown a big-screen version of the performance of Arabella Kushner.
In his comments at the banquet, President Xi himself compared Trump’s visit to the visit of President Nixon 45 years ago, noting the tremendous importance of that visit in re-establishing U.S.-China relations: “President Trump, the state visit to China is another event of historic importance. Over the past two days, we have had in-depth exchange of views on how China and the United States should seize the opportunity, rise up to the challenges, and open up new grounds in our relations. Together, we have mapped out a blueprint for advancing China-U.S. relations. We both agree that China and the United States should remain partners, not rivals. We both agree that when we work together, we can accomplish many great things to the benefit of our two countries and the whole world.”
In his comments, President Trump again emphasized his gratitude for the kindness and hospitality shown by his Chinese hosts, and stressed his understanding of the significance of the visit: “Yesterday, we visited the Forbidden City, which stands as a proud symbol of China’s rich culture and majestic spirit. Your nation is a testament to thousands of years of vibrant, living history. And today, it was a tremendous honor to be greeted by the Chinese delegation right here at the Great Hall of the People. This moment in history presents both our nations with an incredible opportunity to advance peace and prosperity alongside other nations all around the world. In the words of a Chinese proverb, ‘We must carry forward the cause and forge ahead into the future.’ I am confident that we can realize this wonderful vision, a vision that will be so good and, in fact, so great for both China and the United States.
“Though we come from different places and faraway lands,” Trump continued, “there is much that binds the East and West. Both of our countries were built by people of great courage, strong culture, and a desire to trek across the unknown into great danger. But they overcame. The people of the United States have a very deep respect for the heritage of your country and the noble traditions of its people. Your ancient values bring past and future together into the present. So beautiful! It is my hope that the proud spirits of the American and Chinese people will inspire our efforts to achieve a more just, secure, and peaceful world, a future worthy of the sacrifices of our ancestors, and the dreams of our children.”
Re-read these comments of Presidents Trump and Xi. Ponder their significance! The implications of what we are witnessing are historic, and contain the potential to change the life of every person on this planet for the better. It is a potential for moving the entire world into an era of peace and economic development. Its significance goes far beyond the geo-political motives of Nixon’s trip in 1972.
But true to form, the moronic voices of the U.S news media and political pundits have already been raised in “critiquing” President Trump’s performance in China, carping about his “failure” to raise certain issues. All they are accomplishing in these complaints is revealing their own anti-Trump bias and their dismal failure to understand the fundamental forces that are now shaping history, because the world no longer operates under the banner of some world “hegemon.”

The problems facing mankind are far too complex and difficult for any one country, be it China or the United States, to resolve. Only in a collaborative effort among all nations including the United States, China, and Russia, can poverty be eliminated, wars stopped or prevented, and world development promoted. The desperate attempts by the “Atlanticist” crowd to demonize the Russian President and to paint a diabolical picture of China’s motives behind the ambitious Belt and Road Initiative, would only serve to make America irrelevant as the rest of the world comes together to forge a common destiny for mankind. President Trump wants to collaborate with China and with Russia in order to begin to tackle those world problems that can only be resolved through such collaboration. Should not every patriotic American give their support to this noble cause, and help re-establish that respect and honor in the eyes of the world community that this nation throughout its history has so long enjoyed—and deserved?

  1. I agree to this article but it’s hard to defend anti – trump bias of many people because of his domestic shenanigans. I wonder why Hillary lost. However, it seems like the trump presidency is bad for US domestic issues but good for Asian geopolitics and towards a multipolar world.

        1. Oh for goodness sake what sort of religious nut are you? As I said Jacob & 4 others were killed in copter crash last week. Read the English newspapers. Not big enough news to hit the International headlines. You might even find the story in the local Buckinghamshire Post a provincial English newspaper.

  2. The difference between the response of China´s leadership to the entourage of the foreign alien, Barrack H. Obama, in 2016 (G20 Summit) and the response to president Trump´s entourage by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2017, is similar to the comparison of night with day.
    The appearance of “day“, as initiated by president Trump, is encouraging.

  3. If western globalists believe they can dominate the world and expand it is time for them to think again. It is not going to happen, China is a great and powerful nation as is Russia and US media is making the US look like idiots.

  4. Lets NOT forget that the Chinese are in bed with the Rottenschild FAKE JEW banking system folks…Along with the Khazarian Putin for world control…and Trump is just PART of it ALL.
    WHEN…will REAL TRUTH prevail about the FAKE JEWS “Occupying” the nation of Israel???

    1. Where do you get such stupid ideas from? Did you not know Jacob Rothschild’s private helicopter fell out of the sky today onto the Buckhinghamshire estate, which belongs to the National Trust UK. There were six brothers so which one do you think is the arch villain? As for China what rubbish, the next age of China will be based on Confusion philosophy. I recommend you watch CGTN & CNC news from China and learn something. The real bogymen are largely US and as for Putin to my knowledge is unlikely to ally for some kind of domination with a bunch of egomaniacs from the States predominantly bankers like Goldman Sachs.

    2. Fake Jews, yes.
      “Israel” is the title fraudulently assigned to the territory that was included in the U.N. land-grant of 1948 to David Ben-Gurion and other leaders of the terrorist army of Judaism.
      The territory is neither Israel of 5,000 years ago nor “Israel” of the New Testament. That Judaism´s army continues to conduct terrorism and confiscate territory of the Palestinians – and others – is clarified by world-renowned Rabbi, Henry Siegman, who lived through WWII. His article clarifies to a great extent_

      1. Rabbi Siegman is indeed an erudite man, but also anti-Israel, he is also an Ashkenazi Jew, all of whom Saphardic Jews consider fake Jews. Since according to some minds Askenazi’s are converts. Sephardic are Semitic, semitic reaches across Southern Europe from the Middle East. Ashkenazi hail from Baltic locations. No one has proved either way, though I guess DNA might prove the difference! Israel was ceded to the Jewish people as compensation for the endless persecution of Jews and the crimes of the Holocaust, by the rest of Europe.

      1. @Ian
        That’s EXACTLY what I had thought BEFORE I researched China’s banking background and even found photos of the Rottenfellers sitting next to Mao si dung…Red China’s first leader!!!
        Rottenfeller even admired China’s brutal CONTROL over his people!

        1. You are so full of bs. I don’t believe you know too much about China today. You are as bad the Indian Minister interviewed with Yang Rui last night on dialogue, how the Chinese minister wiped the floor with him with facts objectivity and logic. You underestimate the Chinese but then most of you are still living in the cold war. You make a fool of yourself get some real facts and educate yourself then we will take notice of you.

  5. Fisher Update:
    1. This is going to happen but we don’t know who and when the trigger will be pulled.
    2. There are around 2,500 sealed indictments with arrests attached for people around the world.
    3. When the indictments are unsealed it’s going to cause chaos.
    4. Bankers are being arrested. A while back a major banker was pulled out of bed early in the morning.
    5. The numbers could go out Sun-Mon and we could be in the bank by Tues. Nov. 21.
    6. Monday Nov. 20 is going to be a very critical day for Trump. They might indict him, or drop all charges.
    ________________________________ US Marines Storm the CIA Headquarters in Langley
    Reports: US Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Lands at Langley! 2200 Marines!
    FILE PHOTO: Tilt-Rotor Aircraft
    Reports are beginning to surface that a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) landed at Langley on Saturday.
    A Marine expeditionary unit (MEU, pronounced “Mew”), is the smallest Marine air-ground task force (MAGTF) in the United States Fleet Marine Force. Each MEU is an expeditionary quick reaction force, deployed and ready for immediate response to any crisis, whether it be natural disaster or combat missions.
    A Marine expeditionary unit is normally composed of: a reinforced Marine infantry battalion (designated as a Battalion Landing Team) as the ground combat element, a composite medium tiltrotor squadron forms the aviation combat element, a combat logistics battalion provides the logistics combat element, and a company-size command element serves as the MEU headquarters group.
    Troop strength is about 2,200 and usually commanded by a colonel, and is deployed from amphibious assault ships. Currently, a Marine expeditionary unit embarks Marines and equipment onto the amphibious warfare ships of an Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) which also includes escort ships and submarines to protect them from air, surface, and submarine threats. For further protection and strong air support, such an ESG is often deployed along with one or more carrier battle groups.
    According to persons who reside near Langley, a large contingent of Marines arrived at CIA Headquarters in tilt-rotor aircraft and when the Marines deplaned, they were armed and moved quickly into CIA Headquarters!
    Those witnesses also say that a significant number of tilt-rotor aircraft can be clearly seen on the grounds of CIA Headquarters, parked on the grass around the building.
    This is not normal.
    Never before has anything like this ever been seen taking place at CIA Headquarters and speculation is now running rampant as to what is actually taking place.
    Conspiracy Theorists are claiming the President of the United States is moving to take out rogue elements in the Intelligence Community, at the request of his new CIA Director. It is rumored that these rogue elements have been undermining the Administration since before it took office last January, and may be connected to some well publicized “incidents” which suddenly resumed taking place this year, (mass shootings / violent protests) after a brief respite once the Obama Administration left office.
    Moreover, there is not one word of Marines landing at Langley, appearing in _any_ US mass-media outlet.
    UPDATE 5:51 AM EST —
    The number of SEALED INDICTMENTS presently on US District Court Dockets across the United States has reached an astonishing 1800 as of Friday, November 17. These Sealed Indictments began appearing on US District Court Dockets on October 31.
    There have never been this many Sealed Indictments showing on federal court Dockets at the same time . . . ever.
    The existence of so many sealed Indictments has lead others to suggest that large groups of federal officials – perhaps including elected officials – are facing mass arrest over a number of corruption-related activities such as “pay-to-play” the UraniumOne conspiracy, Pedophile Rings and other criminal activities, and these troops may be needed to keep order once the high officials start being taken under arrest!
    This is especially interesting given revelations late last week, that an FBI Informant allegedly has VIDEO of Clinton Foundation people being given suitcases full of cash from Russians, prior to the approval of the UraniumOne deal which sold twenty percent of US Uranium manufacturing to Russia’s state-owned ROSATOM corporation.
    The existence of video showing cash payoffs has sent a slew of people from the former Administration into fits of anxiety that their schemes are uncovered and many of them are going to prison for what they did. Desperate people can sometimes do desperate things and if those people are high-ranking federal officials, God only knows what they might have in the works to try to save themselves.
    This is a developing story. Updates will be made as information becomes available.

  6. @Erika
    YOU, failed to ALLOW a “Reply” to YOUR accusation about ME…I wonder WHY???
    IF, You have done serious research into the “Rotten-Feller” banking…you would find absolute collusion with them and China’s first dictator Mao si Dong right after WW2 ended!
    Here is the link (Although you may find IT “Removed” by NOW)
    Geeee…I wonder WHY, if you cannot SEE it Erika???
    It even includes PHOTOS of them together!
