BEIJING, February 9. /TASS/. The Chinese-US elations should develop on the basis of cooperation, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang, told a press briefing on Thursday commenting on a letter sent by US President, Donald Trump, to his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, on the occasion of the Lunar New Year.
"The Chinese side has received the message. We welcome the fact that Donald Trump has sent congratulations to Chinese President, Xi Jinping, and the Chinese people on the occasion," the diplomat said. "China pays considerable attention to the development of the Chinese-US relations. China and the US have a special responsibility in maintaining peace and stability, promoting prosperity and in other areas."
He added that "cooperation is the only right choice" for the two countries.
White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, earlier said that Trump sent Xi Jinping a letter saying that is looking forward to developing constructive relationship with the Chinese leader that benefits both Washington and Beijing.
