Chinese President Xi Jinping met with visiting U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel in Beijing. After the meeting, China’s President expressed hopes that the new model of military relations between China and the U.S. will continue to develop.
“Military-to-military relations are an important component of China-U.S. ties and both sides should develop a new model of military relationship within the framework of building a new type of major-country relations,” the Chinese President said. He recalled his Annenberg meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama last June, during which they agreed to build a new type of major-country relations based on mutual respect and win-win cooperation. The two presidents have since met twice, respectively in St. Petersburg during the G20 Summit and in The Hague during the Nuclear Security Summit. CCTV’s Han Bin reports.
