China will build a new model of relations with the US within the formation of the “circle of friends” around the world. The Chairman of the Republic XI Jinping said in his speech in the Geneva UN office, reports Reuters.

“We will strive to create a new model of relations with the United States, to comprehensive strategic interaction and partnership with Russia”, — said the head of the PRC.

“We always put the rights and interests of people above all else, and we’ve worked hard to develop and protect human rights”, — he said, adding that China “will never seek expansion or hegemony of the formation of spheres of influence”.

According to XI Jinping, the big countries should treat smaller countries as equals and not act as a hegemon that imposes its will on others.

In connection with the arrival of the new President of the United States Donald trump expressed concerns about possible complications in relations between Washington and Beijing. Trump has repeatedly stated that the United States needs to impose special duties imposed on imported Chinese goods. In his opinion, it could force China to raise the yuan. In addition, the Republican has repeatedly called Beijing economic enemy of the United States due to the currency policy of China.
