Study Times, a newspaper by CCP Central Party School, recently published an article on the current status of Sino-US relations. The article pointed out that Obama is the first US President to visit China in the first year of his first term. The author believes this is based on the facts that Obama will have a unique cooperative policy and that China is making a positive contribution to the international financial crisis. The article also indicated: (1) more contradictions do not necessarily mean more problems (between the two countries); (2) new economic growth points favor better Sino-US relations; (3) the two countries should have mutual respect for each other’s core interests.
