Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday urged that China and the United States need to deepen trust to each other.
Hu made the remark when addressing the Opening Session of the fourth round of China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogues (S&ED) on Thursday morning in Beijing.
"To build a new type of relations between China and the United States, we need to trust each other," Hu said.
He said that the world is big enough for China, the United States and all other countries to achieve common development.
Over the past 30 years and more since its reform and opening-up process started, China has, through the hard work and wisdom of the Chinese people and win-win cooperation with the people around the world, pursued peaceful development, he said.
"This is a right path to development that we have embarked on," said Hu, adding that to follow the path of peaceful development is China's strategic choice which will never change, and it is a solemn commitment China has made to the world.
