SOCHI, Russia, May 13 (Xinhua) -- China, Russia and the United States should keep expanding cooperation and jointly contribute to the world stability and global development, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Monday.
Facing ever-increasing global challenges, China, Russia and the United States, which are all permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and among the most influential countries, should engage in positive interaction with an inclusive mindset, Wang told journalists after meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
He underlined that the three countries need to get rid of unnecessary suspicion and misunderstanding and continuously expand cooperation with each other, while safeguarding world peace and stability as well as promoting global development and prosperity.
The China-Russia relationship, in particular, has set an example for the international community in this regard, Wang said.
"We are ready to settle differences and strengthen cooperation with other countries including the United States on the basis of mutual respect, so as to strive for more peace, security and stability for the world," he added.[ Editor: Zhang Zhou ]
