The deputy secretary made the remarks in response to a question about whether the Obama administration remains committed to the one-China policy and the principles of the three China-U.S. joint communiques.

"It (the one-China policy) serves us very well. We have consistently through Democratic and Republican administrations understood those agreements and principles be the foundation of building an ever stronger relationship (with China)," Steinberg said.

"So there is no change. It's a commitment that we understand be the bedrock of the foundation of the relationship between the two countries," he added.

The deputy secretary appeared to be quite positive about U.S.- China relationship despite recent troubles between the two countries caused by the announcement of new U.S. arms sales to Taiwan in January and President Barack Obama's meeting with the Dalai Lama in February.
