Photo exhibition to mark China-US ties

A photo exhibition on China-U.S. relations was held in the city of Houston Saturday, to mark the 36th anniversary of the establishment of China-U.S. diplomatic relations and Chinese President Xi Jinping's successful September state visit to the U.S.

Organized by Xinhua Houston Bureau, the exhibition reviewed a 36-year course of the development of China-U.S. relations.

During the September visit, Xi agreed with U.S. President Barack Obama that the two countries should continue the endeavor to build a new model of major-country relations based on mutual respect and win-win cooperation and promote peace, stability and prosperity in the world.

U.S. Congressman Al Green stressed the importance of boosting U.S.-China ties. "These two great nations have the opportunity to bring economic success, to the rest of the world. If China's relationship with the United States grows, then the world economy is going to grow," he said.

Nell Calloway, granddaughter of the Flying Tigers Commander Clare Lee Chennault, said in her congratulatory letter to Xinhua that "It is now up to us to continue to work toward our common goals: prosperity, stability, respect and understanding. We once performed the impossible and we can do it again but only if we work together."

The Flying Tigers generally refer to the American and Chinese military pilots who fought against Japanese aggressors in China in World War II.

About 100 people, including those from local Chinese communities, university teachers and students, attended the exhibition.
