Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to the United States last week took China-U.S. relations to a higher level, said the Chinese ambassador in Washington on Tuesday.

"The two sides achieved their targeted goal of enhancing mutual trust through the state visit," Cui Tiankai told a reception for the 66th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

"The state visit further highlighted the international dimension of China-U.S. relations." Cui told about 1,000 guests.

He noted that Xi and U.S. President Barack Obama agreed to continue the endeavor to build a new model of major-country relationship based on mutual respect and win-win cooperation.

The two sides reached important agreement in various fields, such as economics, trade, energy, people-to-people exchanges, science and technology, agriculture, law enforcement, cybersecurity, defense, aviation, and infrastructure, Cui added.

The two leaders also reaffirmed their commitment to further cooperation on regional and international issues as well as global challenges, and agreed to endeavor to build a relationship of positive interaction and inclusive cooperation in the Asia-Pacific, Cui said.

"They decided to enhance communication on UN peacekeeping, development cooperation, the 2030 agenda for sustainable development, food security, global health, and humanitarian assistance and disaster response."

Following the historic joint agreement on climate change last November in Beijing, the two presidents issued a joint statement on climate change again, reaffirming their determination to promote sustainable development and the transition to green, low-carbon, and climate-resilient economies.

Cui stressed that China and the United States also reaffirmed their commitment to addressing disagreements in a constructive way, which will have a far-reaching impact on China-U.S. relations.

"Strategic communications at the top level undoubtedly helped the two sides understand more about each other's concerns. This paved the way for proper management of the differences so that they won't stand in the way of our cooperation."

Cui expressed the hope that Washington will also be ready to do its part and "together, we can certainly make this world a better place for our future generations."
