The Chinese authorities expressed their hope today to have better relations with the United States of America (USA) regardless of who wins the US presidential elections scheduled for November this year.

Sino-US relations have deteriorated in recent years over several issues, including US ties to Taiwan, trade, rivalries in new technologies, the struggle for influence in the Asia-Pacific region and the South China Sea, and over respect for human rights.

However, the two countries appear to want to renew dialogue, as Washington sent several senior officials to Beijing last year and there was a meeting in November between US President Joseph Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in California.

Americans will go to the polls in November, where former President Donald Trump and Biden will probably compete.

"I think the US election is their internal issue and we do not take a position on it," Lu Qinjian, spokesman for the annual session of China's parliament, told reporters.

"Whoever is elected, we hope they can cooperate with China to find a common language and promote stable, healthy and lasting Sino-US relations," Lu added.

According to him, the stabilization and improvement of relations between China and the US is something that everyone is closely watching and hoping for.

Bilateral relations remain tense over the issue of the island of Taiwan, which Beijing considers an integral part of Chinese territory. The US does not officially recognize Taiwan's authorities, but is its main arms supplier.
