The NPC of China is willing to strengthen exchanges with the U.S. Congress, adhere to the principles of rationality, objectivity and fairness in communication and exchanges, seek common ground while shelving differences, promote cooperation and play a constructive role in promoting the healthy and stable development of China-U.S. relations, he said.

Schumer and others said that the U.S. side does not seek conflict with China and is willing to carry out frank exchanges with China on major issues of mutual concern.
