The United States should honor its commitment to China and translate the vision agreed on by the two presidents during their November meeting in San Francisco into real actions, a spokesman for the second session of the 14th National People's Congress said at a press conference on Monday.

China's position on developing relations with the U.S. has been consistent and it will follow the principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation, as put forward by President Xi Jinping, and work for a stable, healthy and sustainable relationship with the U.S., said the spokesman Lou Qinjian.

"We have taken concrete actions toward that. It is hoped that the U.S. will honor its commitment, build the five pillars for China-U.S. relations stronger and translate the understandings and vision agreed on by the two presidents in San Francisco into real actions," Lou said.

Regarding the question about how the upcoming general election of the U.S. influences the China-U.S. relations, Lou said that it is an internal affair of the U.S., and China does not hold a position on that. "No matter who becomes the president, we hope that the U.S. can work in the same direction with China and work for a stable, healthy and sustainable China-U.S. relationship."

Lou spoke of some members of the U.S. Congress putting out bills to counter China, targeting the Chinese institutions, companies and individuals or even making provocative visits to China's Taiwan region, saying these acts have grossly interfered in China's internal affairs, undermined China's legitimate rights and interests, and disrupted the normal exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.

Noting this year marks the 45th anniversary of China-U.S. diplomatic relations, Lou said that it is important for legislatures of the two countries to have more exchanges, dialogue and communication to deepen mutual understanding and play a constructive role in the stable development of China-U.S. relations.
