China welcomes U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken's visit to China and is in communication with the U.S. side on specific arrangements for the visit, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin said Tuesday.
Wang made the remarks at a news briefing in response to reports that Blinken will visit China on Feb. 5 and will meet with Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang.
Wang said China has always viewed and developed its relations with the United States in accordance with the three principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation.
China hopes that the United States will adopt a correct perception about China, stick to dialogue rather than confrontation, and pursue win-win results rather than a zero-sum game, Wang said.
"It is hoped that the United States can work with China to fully deliver on the important common understandings reached between the two heads of state, and bring China-U.S. relations back to the track of sound and steady growth," he said.
