Beijing, April 13 (IANS) US Secretary of State John Kerry Saturday expressed interest in creating a roadmap to facilitate the development of bilateral ties while meeting Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
Wang said bilateral ties have had a good start, adding that he hopes both sides can create a roadmap that can promote dialogue and cooperation, reported Xinhua.
“We hope both sides can continue to address differences based on the spirit of mutual
respect,” Wang said.
