15:44, September 06, 2012

BEIJING, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday urged the United States to earnestly respect its sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as take its key interests and people's feelings into consideration.

The call was made by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao during his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Wen also urged the U.S. to play a constructive role in dialogues and cooperation in Asia-Pacific affairs to maintain the region's overall peace and stability.

Wen noted that the China-U.S. relationship has great influence in the world, and the relationship can only stay on track through efforts from both sides.

"History has proved that countries with different social systems can score peaceful coexistence and joint development if their leaders handle bilateral relations with an overall perspective and at a strategic level," Wen told Clinton.

The Chinese premier also called on the two countries to initiate a packaged cooperation plan to expand trade, investment and financial cooperation and create favorable conditions for the companies of the two nations to boost business.
