    Obama: US-China relations to shape 21st century

    Obama: US-China relations to shape 21st century - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama, opening two days of high-level talks with China, said the discussions could lay the groundwork for a new era of "sustained cooperation, not confrontation" in a relationship likely to shape the 21st century.

    Obama said that Washington and Beijing needed to forge closer ties to address a host of challenges from lifting the global economy out of a deep recession to nuclear proliferation and global climate change.

    "I believe that we are poised to make steady progress on some of the most important issues of our times," the president told diplomats from both countries assembled in the vast hall of the Ronald Reagan Building.

    Obama said he was under "no illusions that the United States and China will agree on every issue" but he said closer cooperation in important areas was critical for the world.

    "The relationship between the United States and China will shape the 21st century, which makes it as important as any bilateral relationship in the world," Obama said.
    Do you agree with this? I must say, that I feel the relationship between the U.S. and China is surely to be the biggest factor in this century. We will either get much accomplished in cooperation, or stagger the world with conflict. Thoughts?

    Tlmorg02,

    I believe the U.S.-China relationship is vitally important to the interests of both countries and to promoting geopolitical stability in general. The key to strengthening and sustaining the relationship will be an emphasis on the enormous common interests--economic and geopolitical--that make the relationship so important to both states.

    So many prophecies are coming out of this guy.

    It's what messiahs do.

    Fact of the matter is that...guess what?....Richard Nixon established the foundations for non-confrontational relations with China.

    The biggest event to shape the 21st Century isn't going to be the US-China relationship. Its going to be the collapse of the United States from a metastasizing socialist state.
