China, US should ‘shoulder responsibilities’ for world peace, Xi tells Biden

Baku, March 19, AZERTAC

China and the US should “shoulder their share of international responsibilities” for world peace and tranquility, Chinese President Xi Jinping told his US counterpart on Friday, according to Anadolu Agency.

Following almost a two-hour long video call between the two presidents, a Chinese government statement said the two sides agreed that the call was “constructive.”

Xi said that the world “is neither tranquil nor stable.”

“The Ukraine crisis is not something we want to see. The events again show countries should not come to the point of meeting on the battlefield,” the Chinese president said, adding that conflict and confrontation "are not in anyone’s interest."

He said peace and security are “what the international community should treasure the most.”

The Chinese president said leaders of the major countries “need to think about how to properly address global hotspot issues and keep in mind global stability and the work and life of billions of people.”

Xi acknowledged that “differences between China and the US will remain.”

“What matters is to keep such differences under control. A steadily growing relationship is in the interest of both sides,” he told Biden.
