It must stop its meddling in China's internal affairs, and stop its irrational cracking down on China's legitimate rights and interests, he said.
Still, it will be necessary to establish a clear framework for relations between China and the United States, given the current complex situation of ties, he said.
The China-U.S. relationship needs to be recalibrated, said William Zarit, chairman of American Chamber of Commerce in China, adding that statesmanship is required.
"Of course, greater clarity and greater rapprochement on the part of both countries are needed. Therefore, the role of diplomats from both parties will be essential to negotiate solutions to the problems, without ever needing the use of force," said Maggiorelli.
The remarks were made by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian while responding to a query about Azar's visit at a press briefing held in Beijing.
