MNI POLICY: China Aiming For Win-Win Relations With US: Wang

MNI (London)
     BEIJING (MNI) - China still hopes to reach a non-confrontational outcome
with the U.S., leading to a win-win relationship, China's foreign minister Wang
Yi said Friday
     During an online conference call with German foreign minister Heiko Maas,
Wang said, "China still hopes to achieve non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual
respect, and win-win cooperation with the U.S.", according to a statement
published on the website of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China
     However, Wand added that China would not allow the U.S. to "go crazy",
hinting that China may adopt a measured tit-for-tat reaction in response to
Washington's recent hawkish policies on China.
     "The current difficulties in Sino-U.S. relations are entirely caused by the
U.S.," Wang said, adding that Washington has "openly coerced other countries to
choose sides" but any country with a "conscience and independent spirit" will
not go with the U.S., he said.
