During the meeting, Yang said China-U.S. relations have maintained fine development momentum in recent years.

China is ready to work together with the U.S. side to implement consensus reached by leaders of the two countries and maintain frequent exchanges of visits at all levels, said Yang.

Yang expected China and the United States could enhance communication and coordination on major international and regional issues, respect each other's core interest and major concern, and advance bilateral ties in a positive, cooperative and comprehensive manner.

For her part, Clinton spoke highly of recent development in bilateral ties. She said United States would like to join hands with China to enhance strategic dialogue and mutual respect.

Clinton said United States and China should expand cooperation on economic, trade, investment and a wide range of areas to maintain positive development momentum of bilateral ties.

In response to the planned U.S.-South Korean military drills, Yang said China firmly opposes foreign warships and military aircraft entering the Yellow Sea and other coastal waters of China to engage in activities affecting China's security and interests.

Yang urged relevant parties to exercise calm and to refrain from acts that might escalate tension in the region.
