BEIJING, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao met with his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden in Beijing on Wednesday, pledging to enhance high-level strategic communication and avoid conflict and confrontation.

During the meeting, Li said Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Barrack Obama reached important consensus on the building of a new model of major-country relations in June.

China would like to strengthen high-level strategic communication with the United States, respect each other's core interests and major concerns and deepen substantial cooperation in all areas and enhance coordination on bilateral, regional and global spheres, said Li.

"China is ready to translate the spirit of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation to every aspect of the China-U.S. relationship," Li said.

For his part, Biden said the U.S.-China relationship, with its great influence on the world, has matured gradually.

The U.S. side is committed to "high-level engagement with China," expanding practical cooperation, delivering results, and managing differences between the two countries "candidly and constructively" so as to advance the new model of relations.

Prior to the meeting in the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing, Li held a welcoming ceremony for Biden.

Biden arrived in Beijing on Wednesday for a two-day official visit to China. This is his second trip since he took office in 2009.
