Chinese Officials: Military Relations With U.S. Are Important

Chinese officials recently said military relations have always been an important part of the country’s ties with the U.S.
Speaking at a press conference Tuesday, China’s foreign ministry spokesman said communication with the U.S. is developing despite trade tensions.
This comes as Defense Secretary James Mattis visits China in an effort to discuss security with Beijing.

“What’s crucial is that both sides, no matter what the sector, can, in the spirit of mutual respect and understanding, expand cooperation and manage and control differences, to appropriately handle disputes between the two countries,” stated China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang. “I believe that as long as both countries have this desire to meet each other halfway, there are no difficulties that cannot be overcome.”
Mattis said his top priority during his visit is to discuss China’s role in the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
He will also visit South Korea and Japan to meet with defense officials.
