Despite policy adjustments in the US under the Trump administration, the two phone calls made between presidents of China and the US have sent a clear signal - Beijing and Washington want more cooperation, said Fu Ying, spokeswoman for the coming annual meeting of national legislators.

Fu said US policy moves under the new government will impact relations with China, while Beijing expects the impact to be "positive".

"But for sure, China will face and handle it if there is any challenge," she said.

Fu said there have been quite a few exchanges between high-level officials from both sides.

"The two phone calls between President Xi Jinping and President Trump have sent clear information - China and the US want more cooperation and to become good partners," she said.

Xi and Trump made a phone call on Nov 14 last year after Trump was elected. The two heads of state made another phone call on Feb 10.

The spokesperson, a former vice-foreign minister, said she found that US society does not know much about China.

"In this round of US general elections, every candidate talked about China, but I found they were talking about old stories of China, or stories that are not genuine," Fu said, adding it is difficult to find articles written by Chinese in the US.

She said it is abnormal in a society with a continuous flow of information.

China will make more efforts to bring more information on the country to the US and the whole world, Fu said, adding she expected foreign journalists reporting on the two sessions to continue writing about China.
