China urges US to maintain healthy bilateral ties
Beijing: China's Ministry of Commerce on Thursday urged the US to work with Beijing to maintain healthy and stable bilateral ties.
"Abandoning the Cold War mentality and hegemony, the world's two largest economies would maintain win-win cooperation and mutual development and together could push prosperity in the global economy," ministry spokesman Gao Feng told a press briefing.
Commenting on the newly released US national security strategy report, Gao said the report had raised global concerns about the stability of the world's economy.
The report, released by US President Donald Trump on Monday, refers to China and Russia as "revisionist powers" and lists them as competitors seeking to alter the status quo that favours Washington.
"As the world's economic recovery remained sluggish, a stable expectation would be crucial for maintaining the recovery momentum," Gao said.
"China has never engaged in, and will never pursue so-called economic aggression policies," the spokesman added.
