 Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi has said the healthy and stable development of China-U.S. relations is mutually beneficial and needs to be maintained with joint efforts from both sides.

 
Wang made the remarks in a speech given at the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations, a New York-based think tank.
 
He said it is necessary to objectively examine the changes that have taken place in each other, calibrate the bilateral relations and have a good grip on the direction of their future development.
 
Wang made it clear that China will take a development path different from that of a traditional power. This is a path with Chinese characteristics, which determines that China will not repeat the old path in which a strong power would surely seek hegemony. 
 
Emphasizing that China always adheres to the path of peace, cooperation and opening-up and endeavors to play an active and constructive role on the international stage, Wang called on parties concerned to shrug off prejudices and make a rational judgment.
 
He added that a better prospect can be achieved if the two sides take a positive and tolerant attitude towards each other, expand and deepen cooperation, and properly manage differences.
