At the same time, we will firmly defend our sovereignty, security and development interests. It is important that the US work together with China to properly manage differences, advance mutually beneficial cooperation, avoid misunderstanding and miscalculation, and bring China-US relations back to the right track of sound and steady development.”

“The steady growth of China-US relations serves the interests of both sides and meets the expectations of the world. We hope that the US will work with China in the spirit of mutual respect, and play a responsible role in safeguarding world stability and development,” he further noted.
