Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian hosted a regular press conference on September 22.
A reporter asked: US President Biden said at the general debate of the UN General Assembly yesterday that the US does not seek conflict and a cold war with China. What is China's response to this?
Zhao Lijian: China's policy toward the US maintains continuity and stability.
President Xi Jinping proposed that China and the United States should respect each other, coexist peacefully and cooperate for win-win results.
This is not only the accumulation of experience in the 50-year history of China-US relations, but also the basic principle that should be followed in the next development.
President Biden has repeatedly made commitments of "four nos, one and no intention". We hope that the US side will implement the statements made by the US leaders, view China and China-US relations in a correct way, return to the origin of the three Sino-US joint communiqués, and handle the relevant issues in a prudent and proper manner. Taiwan issue and maintain the political foundation of China-US relations.
We hope that the US side will work together with China to find a way for two major powers with different social systems, different histories and cultures to coexist peacefully and to achieve win-win cooperation.
It not only benefits the people of China and the United States, but also contributes to world peace, stability and development.
