China and the United States should make concerted efforts to maintain the steady and healthy development of their relations in the face of new challenges, observers have said.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday during a press conference on the sidelines of China's ongoing annual parliamentary session, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the China-U.S. relationship is transitioning steadily and developing in a positive direction through intense communication and joint efforts of both sides.[Special coverage]
"As long as we act on the consensus reached between our presidents, follow the principle of no conflicts and no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, there is no reason why China and the United States cannot become excellent partners," he added.
Observers believe that achieving the smooth transition of bilateral ties and ensuring the healthy development of China-U.S. relations are not only in the fundamental interests of both peoples, but also exerting a positive effect on the promotion of world peace, stability and development.
