China's Xi to Trump: Cooperation is only right choice

World Bulletin / News Desk

Chinese President Xi Jinping has told United States President-elect Donald Trump that cooperation “is the only right choice” for the world’s two largest economies, according to state media.

China Radio International reported that during a phone conversation Monday, Xi called for both countries to seize current opportunities.

He hailed the progress experienced in bilateral relations during the past 37 years, which he described as beneficial to “both the people of the two countries, and world peace and stability”.

Trump, who won last week’s presidential election, was quoted as saying that China is a “great and important country” and assuring that both countries could cooperate toward win-win results.

During election campaigning, Trump had made comments critical of Beijing, saying he wanted to impose tariffs on imports from China and promising to bring back American jobs he said were lost to the Asian country.
