China is willing to make joint efforts with the US incumbent and his new administration to manage disputes, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Friday, amid uncertainties regarding bilateral ties brought by the inauguration of US president-elect Donald Trump later this month.

Analysts said that after the Trump administration takes office on Jan 20, friction is likely between the world's two biggest economies in areas such as trade, and that this should be avoided because confrontation will harm both.

The Sino-US relationship can not only benefit both nations but also serve global peace and prosperity, spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular news conference in Beijing. The two countries must uphold the principles of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual trust and cooperation to achieve win-win results, he said.
