BEIJING, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - The matters of energy supplies, economic and financial interaction and cyber-security problems will be in the focus of participants in the US-Chinese Strategic and Economic Dialog in Washington on July 10-11, Chinese Assistance Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang told a news conference here on Friday.
In his words, the dialog is aimed at the promotion of the pragmatic cooperation on the basis of mutual respect. “The sides will discuss energy security issues, climate changes, as well as interaction in the Asia-Pacific Region,” the minister’s assistance said.
According to the diplomat, the consultations are also aimed at the fulfilment of these agreements signed during the talks between Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Barack Obama in the United States on June 7-8.
Representatives of more than 20 Chinese and American ministries and departments will take part in the dialog, Zheng Zeguang said. The US capital city will host the fifth round of the strategic and economic dialog of China and the United States.
The U.S. delegation to the dialogue is to be led by Secretary of State John F. Kerry and Secretary of the Treasury Jacob J. Lew. The chief Chinese envoys will be State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Vice Premier Wang Yang. They are to be joined by finance, military, energy, environmental and other officials.
The fourth round of the dialog took place in Beijing at the beginning of May 2012.
