The party lauded China's active stands toward the people around the world and thanked China for its support to developing countries in economy, development and other fields.

In a recent interview with Xinhua, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China and the United States, the world's two largest economies, should work for mutual benefit on an equal footing, stop attempts at decoupling and advance the relationship through cooperation, and live up to their responsibility for the world.
Over the past few decades, he said, Sino-U.S. exchanges have promoted global peace and stability and economic and social development. The cooperation between the two countries at bilateral and multilateral levels has helped solve many global problems. A "new cold war" is not a solution to differences and contradictions. Dialogue is the effective way to solve problems. Enditem
