It may be an unlikely scenario that nations with different diplomatic doctrines align their positions on major foreign policy issues, but that doesn't mean that they shall rule out the possibility for cooperation in international affairs.

China and the US may not see eye to eye on many international issues, but there have been successful examples where both powers have sat down and tried to solve areas of mutual concern. The Six-Party Talks, initiated by China to realize a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, was a good example of China and the US sitting down at the same table to work toward the same goal, even though the talks came to a halt in 2009 after North Korea's rocket launch.

Christopher Hill, US Chief Negotiator in the Six-Party Talks, recalls the days when he sat down side by side with his Chinese counterpart to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula. He also offers his views on how China and the US can steer clear of conflicts amid US rebalancing policies and achieve win-win results.

How can China and the US seek more cooperation on international issues? What efforts can both sides make to avoid conflicts in the Asia-Pacific region?

Ni Hao, you're listening to   People In the Know, bringing you insights into the headlines in China, and around the World; I'm Zheng Chenguang in Beijing.

We speak to Christopher Hill, former US Chief Negotiator to the Six-Party Talks and former US ambassador to Iraq and Dr. Yu Wanli, Associate Professor at Peking University's School of International Studies.
