BEIJING, March 7 (Xinhua) -- China hopes the United States will explore the right way to get along with China that benefits both countries and the world, Foreign Minister Qin Gang said Tuesday.
Speaking at a press conference on the sidelines of the first session of the 14th National People's Congress, Qin said China will continue to follow the principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation to pursue a sound and stable relationship with the United States.
