China’s government mouthpiece suggested a new beginning for US-Sino relations after US president Barack Obama won a second term in the White House Tuesday, Reuters reported. Obama “should start to learn how to build a more rational and constructive relationship with China,” a Xinhua news report stated soon after the president’s victory was announced. The article called for the two countries to mend ties and ensure continuity in their relations. “The new Obama administration perhaps should bear in mind that a stronger and more dynamic China-US relationship, especially in trade, will not only provide US investment with rich business opportunities, but also help to revive the sagging global economy,” the Xinhua report said. Leader-in-waiting Xi Jinping has acknowledged that stability in the Sino-US relationship should be maintained. Xi is widely expected to take over China’s top leadership role during the Communist Party’s 18th congress, which kicked off today.
