Cui Tiankai, the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, shares his view about the Sino-US relationship over the past 40 years in the exclusive interview with thepaper.cn.
"The growth of China-US relations over the past 40 years, the development and changes in each country and those of the whole world are all closely linked. We have many differences and even disagreements, and sometimes serious disputes, but neither of us can do without the other side, or change the other side," said Cui in the interview.
"We must find common interests and areas for cooperation to ensure that our bilateral relations remain on the path of steady and sustain development," said Cui.
