China is ready to work with the United
States to bring bilateral relations back on the right track, State
Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday.
the remarks at a press conference, Wang said the two sides should
follow through on the outcomes of the phone conversation between Chinese
President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Joseph R. Biden on the eve of
the Chinese Lunar New Year last month, and set bilateral relations on a
new path of healthy and steady growth.
two countries with different social systems, China and the United
States naturally have differences and disagreements, Wang said.
matters most is to manage them effectively through candid communication
to prevent strategic miscalculation and avoid conflict and
confrontation," he said.
It is not
surprising that there is competition between China and the United States
as their interests are intertwined, but the two sides should have
healthy competition on the basis of fairness and equity, Wang said.
hopes that the United States will meet China half way and remove all
its unreasonable restrictions on bilateral cooperation as early as
possible, and not create new obstacles, Wang said, noting that China is
ready to work with the United States in fields including anti-pandemic
fight, economic recovery and climate change.
a question on China-U.S. ties in the context of the Taiwan question and
issues related to Hong Kong, Xinjiang, etc., Wang said that China will
never accept groundless allegation and vilification and will never allow
its core interests to be violated, urging the United States to
recognize the fact that it has been, for quite some time, willfully
interfering in other countries' internal affairs in the name of
democracy and human rights.
Chinese people are in the best position to tell whether China is doing a
good job. The Chinese people can best decide what is the right thing
for China to do," Wang said.
