Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang, during a meeting with US Ambassador Nicholas Burns on Monday, May 8, pointed out the need for Washington to deeply rethink its policy towards China. This was reported in the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Thus, Qin Gang continued, the United States prevented the promotion of its own political dialogue with China, and relations between the countries “became colder again.” In the current situation, one should refrain from actions that could increase friction between the two states.

“China will firmly adhere to the principles of President Xi Jinping and build China-US relations on the basis of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and mutually beneficial cooperation,” he said. He expressed hope that the US ambassador would be a “key node and bridge” between Beijing and Washington, and would make constructive efforts.
