INDIAN WELLS, United States, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping called for implementing the spirit of building new type ties with the United States in all aspects of the bilateral relationship, Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi said Saturday.

Xi made the proposal during the June 7-8 summit with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, California, Yang said.

Laying out the four-point proposal, the Chinese leader said first of all, the two sides need to elevate the level of dialogue and mutual trust and institutionalize the meetings between leaders of the two nations at multilateral venues such as the Group of 20 and the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, while making good use of the existing over 90 dialogue and communication mechanisms between the two governments.

Secondly, to open a new horizon for pragmatic cooperation, Washington should take active steps to relax restrictions on hi-tech exports to China and promote the bilateral trade and investment structures toward a more balanced future.

Thirdly, to create a new mode of interaction between major countries, the two sides need to maintain close coordination and collaboration on the Korean Peninsula, Afghanistan and other global hotspot issues, and work more closely on issues such as crackdown on piracy and transnational crimes, peacekeeping tasks, disaster relief, cyber security, climate change and space security.

Last, the two sides need to find a new way to manage their difference and actively foster a new type of military relations in accordance with the new type of inter-power ties.

Yang also said during the summit, Xi summarized the concept of new type relations between the two nations in three phrases -- "no conflict and no confrontation," "mutual respect" and "cooperation toward win-win results."

According to Yang, Obama responded actively to the proposal, saying that the U.S. side placed high importance on its relations with China and is willing to construct a new state-to-state cooperation modal with China based on mutual benefit and mutual respect, so as to jointly meet various global challenges.

Xi left California for home Saturday afternoon after his talks with Obama. Before his U.S. trip, Xi visited Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Mexico.
