Q: President Donald Trump will pay a visit to China on November 8. He is the first head of state to visit China after the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC). How does the Chinese side view the special significance of President Trump's visit at this moment? 


A: At the invitation of President Xi Jinping, President Donald Trump is about to pay a state visit to China. This is the first state visit received by the Chinese side following the successful conclusion of the 19th National Congress of the CPC. Against the backdrop that today's world is in the midst of profound and complex changes, the heads of state of China and the United States are going to meet in Beijing to have another strategic exchange of views on major issues of common interest, reach new important consensus on the basis of the Mar-a-Lago meeting and the Hamburg meeting, enhance mutual understanding and friendship and advance the exchanges and cooperation in various areas. This is of great significance to facilitating the sound and steady growth of China-US relations in the new era and promoting the peace, stability and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific region and the world at large. 


Q: According to the introduction of the Chinese side, China will give a "state visit plus" reception to President Trump. Can you tell us the other special arrangements in addition to the "routine practices" of the "state visit"?


A: When President Xi Jinping visited Mar-a-Lago this April, President Trump and his wife offered a hospitable and considerate reception to President Xi Jinping and his wife with high standard and thoughtful arrangements being made in all respects. We Chinese people believe that courtesy calls for reciprocity. The Chinese side attaches great importance to President Trump's visit to China. Besides the whole set of activities for the state visit, the Chinese side will also arrange the small-group and informal interactions between the two heads of state, which can give them enough time to have an in-depth exchange of views on major issues of common interest. 


Recently, the work teams of the two sides have maintained close and sound communication on the specific arrangements of President Trump's visit to China. I am convinced that through the concerted efforts of the work teams of both sides, this visit will achieve historic success. 


Q: General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out in the report delivered at the 19th National Congress of the CPC that China is moving closer to center stage. How will China avoid strategic conflict with the United States which is now at center stage, in other words, falling into the so-called "Thucydides's Trap"?


A: Both the world and the international stage are large enough to accommodate the sound interaction and friendly co-existence between China and the United States. President Xi Jinping pointed out in the report delivered at the 19th National Congress of the CPC that China will be committed to building a new type of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation and fostering a community of shared future for mankind and calls upon all nations to seek a new path for state-to-state relations characterized by dialogue and partnership rather than confrontation and alliance. This provides a new model for handling state-to-state relations in today's world and charts the course for and injects new impetus into the development of China-US relations in the new era. 


As the largest developing country and developed country in the world, the top two largest economies and two permanent members of the UN Security Council, China and the United States have extensive common interests and shoulder special and important responsibilities in upholding world peace and stability and promoting the global development and prosperity. The Chinese side is willing to work with the United States to act upon the important consensus reached by the two heads of state to focus on cooperation and properly manage differences in the spirit of mutual respect and mutual benefit so as to ensure the sustained, sound and steady growth of China-US relations. This not only serves the fundamental interests of the two peoples but also meets the shared expectations of countries around the world and the international community. 


Q: What consensus does the Chinese side expect to reach on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue during the meeting between the heads of state of China and the United States?


A: China and the United States have shared interests in promoting the realization of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and maintaining the peace and stability of the Peninsula. During the meeting between the two heads of state in Beijing, the two sides will have an in-depth and strategic exchange of views on major issues of common concern, including the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue. We are willing to maintain close communication and coordination with the United States on the basis of mutual respect and make unremitting efforts to promote the proper and peaceful settlement of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue. 


Q: During President Trump's visit to China. What kind of food will be served by the Chinese side, the Chinese food or the western food?


A: You raised a very detailed question, which shows that you are quite interested in the upcoming state visit of President Trump to China. I have said just now that the work teams of China and the United States are maintaining close communication on the specific arrangements of this visit. Please excuse me for not being able to reveal the details here.
