China and the US should and must achieve peaceful co-existence, Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his reply to a letter from two US Flying Tigers veterans, Harry Moyer and Mel McMullen, who fought for China during World War II.

The people of China and the US had shared the same enemy in their fight against Japan and had forged a “profound” friendship, Xi said.

“Looking to the future, China and the US, as two major countries, bear more important responsibilities for world peace, stability and development,” Xi said. “They should and must achieve mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation.”

Separately, US Secretary of State Antony Bliken met with Chinese Vice President Han Zheng on sideline of UN General Assembly on Monday.

The talks involved “a candid and constructive discussion” and the two agreed to maintain open lines of communication and discussed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, North Korea and the Taiwan Strait, the US State Department said in a statement after the meeting on Monday.

“The world expects us to responsibly manage our relationship,” Blinken said during the meeting. “The United States is committed to doing just that.”

“From the perspective of the United States, face-to-face diplomacy is the best way to deal with areas where we disagree, and also the best way to explore areas of cooperation between us,” he said.
