He hailed the progress experienced in bilateral relations during the past 37 years, which he described as beneficial to “both the people of the two countries, and world peace and stability”.
Trump, who won last week’s presidential election, was quoted as saying that China is a “great and important country” and assuring that both countries could cooperate toward win-win results.
