Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday on the sidelines of the G20 Foreign Ministers Meeting to exchange views on bilateral ties and issues of mutual concern.

Wang said that the recent phone conversation between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping was very important. The United States made it a point of adhering to the one-China policy and the two leaders reached a consensus that China and the United States will assuredly become good partners and that the two sides will strive for greater development in bilateral relations from a new starting point.

He said that such an important consensus is the political basis of the bilateral relations, adding that it has pointed to the direction of the development of the bilateral relations in the new era, as well as created necessary conditions for carrying out an all-encompassing strategic cooperation in regional and world affairs.

Wang said China will persist with the principles of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and cooperation and win-win according to the consensus reached by the two leaders. He also included that the two countries should strengthen communication, increase mutual trust, manage differences and deepen cooperation so as to ensure greater development of bilateral relations during U.S President Donald Trump’s time in office, as well as bring tangible benefits to the two peoples and make greater contributions to world peace and prosperity.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said his country has reaffirmed the one-China policy and that this is important not only to the bilateral relations, but also crucial to the security and stability of the region.

Tillerson stated that the United States expects to carry out high-level exchanges with China, increase mutual understanding, maintain and strengthen the dialogue and cooperation mechanisms, and enhance cooperation in such areas as the economy, finance and security so as to push forward the bilateral relations towards greater development.

The two sides also exchanged views on the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula.
