"We are ready to restart the dialogue mechanisms with the U.S. side at any level, in any area and at any time. All issues can be put on the table for discussion," Wang said.
The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and the two countries should not reject each other but draw on each others strength to achieve common development, according to Wang.
"We do have disputes, like the border disputes with India, and some territorial disputes in the South China Sea," he said, adding that "but on the whole, all the countries in our region want to develop mutually beneficial relations. I dont think any one of them wants to see any escalation of tension. This is also the reality."
Timoci Balenaivalu, acting principal archivist of the National Archives of Fiji, said archives is the records of a countrys history, and countries like Fiji and China can learn from history and culture to better their future cooperation.

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The South China Sea is the shared home for the countries in the region and should not be a wrestling ground for international politics, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
"You are asking us what we can do to make the relations better. And people in China are asking what the United States can do to make the relations better. For many of the issues, sometimes I just dont understand why misconceptions could continue and even spread," he said.
"Our message is quite clear: We urge the United States to stop acting with arrogance and prejudice, but enter into constructive dialogue with us on an equal footing. 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.
NEW YORK, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The spokesperson of Chinas Permanent Mission to the United Nations said Wednesday that the Chinese ambassador has called on parties concerned to exercise restraint in Kashmir.

They have wantonly interfered in Hong Kong affairs, with some of them being responsible for the disturbances following the now-withdrawn ordinance amendments, or U.S. sanctions on China and the HKSAR, said the spokesperson.
Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote in an opinion published by The Washington Post that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a blistering speech about China.
