Renmin Ribao, June 7, 2016
Tuesdayâ€™s front page of the Chinese state-run daily Renmin Ribao features President Xi Jinping in front of American and Chinese flags as he spoke at China-U.S. bilateral talks in Beijing.
The 8th round of China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Development and the 7th round of China-U.S. Cultural Exchanges and High Level Consultations began on Monday in the Chinese capital. During the ceremony, Xi insisted on the fact that the two nations â€œshould stick to the Âprinciples of no conflict or confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation.â€
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and US Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew were also present to discuss economic issues and territorial disputes over the South China Sea. The talks will also focus on North Korea, after an envoy from Pyongyang visited Beijing last week to insist that it would continue with its nuclear program.
