|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian's Remarks on U.S. Secretary of State Blinken's Statement|
Q: On March 10 at the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, U.S. Secretary of State Blinken talked about his views on the upcoming high-level strategic dialogue between China and the United States. Do you have any comment?
A: China, invited by the United States, will have a high-level strategic dialogue with the U.S. side in the coming days. China's position on China-US relations is clear. We ask the United States to view China and China-US relations in an objective and rational manner, reject the Cold-War and zero-sum game mentality, respect China's sovereignty, security and development interests, and stop interfering in China's internal affairs. It should follow the spirit of the phone call between the Chinese and U.S. presidents, focus on cooperation, manage differences, and bring the China-US relationship back to the right track of sound and steady development.
