China said on Monday that it has always believed that China and the United States share broad common interests, and cooperation is the only right choice for both countries.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chuying said on Monday that "Zbigniew Brzezinski is a famous strategist and China values his opinion", after the former US national security adviser said in a recent interview that "a world in which America and China are cooperating is a world in which American influence is maximized".

He also said that it is not in Washington's interest to antagonize Beijing, and "it is much better for American interests to have the Chinese work closely with us".

"The Chinese government always believes that ... China and the US share special important responsibilities in fields such as safeguarding world peace and stability, promoting global development and prosperity," Hua said, adding that the two countries also share broad common interests.

"The two sides should adhere to the principles of ‘non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation’, enhance mutual trust, focus on cooperation, and properly handle differences, so as to achieve greater progress for the China-US relationship, as well as benefiting the people in both countries and the world," she added.
