Foreign Minister Wang Yi answers question on China's foreign policy and Sino-US relations at the press center for the first session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC) on Thursday March 8, 2018 in Beijing.

We share important responsibilities for global peace, stability and prosperity. Our two countries will carry out broad based cooperation on a basis of mutual benefit and manage our differences on a basis of mutual respect, said Wang when it goes to China's policy towards the China-US relationship. 

China and US should work together to address major, regional and global challenges.

Our two countries must work for the sustainable, steady and healthy growth of our relations, added Wang.

The China-US cooperation enjoys broad base and close interactions.

According to a latest poll, over 50 percent of the American people have a favorable view of China. The figure has been rising steadily over the years and is the highest one in nearly 30 years. That means that people will not only focus on the problems but also on positive aspects.

As the biggest developing country and the biggest developed country, China and the US working together will not only benefit the two countries but also the whole world

If there is any competition between our two countries, it should be healthy and positive.

China and the US don't have to be rivals but we should strive to be partners in cooperation. Healthy competition is acceptable, said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday.
