2014/12/22

In the evening of December 21, 2014, Foreign Minister Wang Yi held telephone talks with Secretary of State John Kerry of the US at request. Both sides exchanged views on China-US relations and other issues.

Wang Yi expressed that the meeting of Chinese and the US heads of state in Beijing last month yielded important and fruitful results and injected new and strong impetus into the building of the new model of major-country relationship between China and the US. Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations and the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, which is an important opportunity to conclude and review the past as well as plan and look into the future. I hope both China and the US will earnestly implement the important consensus reached by the two heads of state, strengthen exchanges, coordination and cooperation and respect each other's core interests and major concerns so as to promote China-US relations for new and greater development next year. Wang Yi reiterated China's principled position on the Taiwan issue.

Kerry also briefed Wang Yi on his opinion about the cyber-attack on the Sony Pictures. Wang Yi reiterated China's relevant position, stressing that China opposes cyber-attack and Internet terrorism of all forms and any country or individual using facilities in another country to launch cyber-attacks against a third country.
