Qin Gang, the new Chinese ambassador to the United States, delivered a speech to the Chinese and American media


On the evening of July 28, Ambassador Qin Gang delivered a speech to the Chinese and American media as soon as

he arrived in Washington. The full text of the speech is as follows:


  I am honored to be the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to the United States of America.
  50 years ago, Dr. Kissinger visited China secretly and knocked on the door of China. At the time of the Cold War, China and the United States were isolated from each other, and the far-sighted Dr. Kissinger had to go to China in a concealed way. Today, 50 years later, as the 11th Chinese ambassador to the United States, I can openly embark on the right path to the United States. Times have changed, which makes people sigh. I believe that the door of Sino-US relations has been opened, and it will not be closed. This is the trend of the times, the general trend, and the aspirations of the people.
  For half a century, Sino-US relations have gone through ups and downs, and along the way, they have not only profoundly affected the two countries, but also profoundly changed history and the world. At present, the world is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. As two big countries with different histories and cultures, different social systems, and different stages of development, China and the United States are entering a new round of mutual discovery, cognition, and adjustment, seeking ways to get along with each other in a new era. China-US relations are again at a new critical juncture. They face many difficulties and challenges, but also have huge opportunities and potentials. Where to go is related to the well-being of the two peoples and the future of the world. A healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations is the common expectation of the people of the two countries and the international community.
  The road we have taken. President Xi Jinping said that every mountain opens a road, and a bridge meets water. President Biden said that everything is possible. In accordance with the spirit of the conversation between the two heads of state on New Year’s Eve, I will build a bridge of communication and cooperation with all walks of life in the United States, maintain the foundation of China-US relations, safeguard the common interests of the people of China and the United States, and jointly push China-US relations back on the right track of development. The Sino-US approach of mutual respect, equal treatment, win-win cooperation, and peaceful coexistence has changed from possible to reality.
  Currently, the United States is struggling to fight the new crown pneumonia epidemic under the leadership of President Biden and revitalize its economic development. I wish the United States an early victory over the epidemic and wish the American people happiness and well-being.
