China hopes to cooperate with the United States based on mutual respect and non-confrontation, which is the only right choice for both sides, the press service of the Chinese Defense Ministry said on Monday.
“At present, the Sino-American relations are at an important stage. Cooperation between Beijing and Washington is beneficial for both sides, and rivalry will harm both,” the ministry said in a commentary on China’s strategy for international military cooperation.
The Chinese Defense Ministry said that “cooperation is the only right choice for both sides.”
“Relations between the military are an important part of the relations between the two countries… We hope that the United States will cooperate with China and faithfully implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, adhere to the spirit of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect, and mutually beneficial cooperation,” the statement said.
The Chinese side also hopes to strengthen dialogue with the United States, expand pragmatic cooperation, and resolve differences appropriately.
