China says hopes U.S. can abandon bias, view China objectively

BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Thursday it hopes the United States can abandon its bias and see China objectively, following U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s call for a broader alliance to check instances of Beijing’s “disadvantageous” influence in Asia.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters China steadfastly upheld the international order with the United Nations at the core.

Tillerson said on Wednesday ahead of a visit to India the Trump administration wants to “dramatically deepen” cooperation with New Delhi, adding U.S. seeks constructive relations with China but will not shrink from instances where China “subverts the sovereignty of neighboring countries and disadvantages the U.S.” and its friends.
