Hillary Clinton lauds U.S.-China ties

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Friday that U.S.-China relationship "has gone global" and arrived at a "critical juncture."

Delivering remarks on U.S.-China relations at the State Department, Clinton said the two countries are in the same boat and rowing in the same direction.

"A thriving United States is good to China and a thriving China is good to the United States," the top U.S. envoy said.

The U.S. State Department described her presentation of "broad vision of U.S.-China relations in the 21st century" as setting the stage for the upcoming state visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao starting next Wednesday.

Clinton said the two countries have "much more to gain from cooperation than conflict," and their relationship has been marked by "great promise and real achievements" since the door of engagement opened.
