"We hope that it will work with us to ease current tensions and put the relations back onto the right track of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation," he said. "This serves the shared interests of the two peoples and meets the expectation of the international community." Enditem
The United States should genuinely eliminate the prejudice and hatred some of its political forces harbor, abandon the Cold War mentality and zero-sum game mindset, respect Hong Kong affairs as China's internal affairs, and stop using HKSAR as a ground for secession, subversion, infiltration and sabotage against China.

The two major countries in the world, which share extensive common interests, stand to gain from cooperation and lose from confrontation, they said.
China and the United States should also expand mutually beneficial cooperation in all fields, and cement popular support for their relations, said Yang.
