Unlike official US stance, more Americans back China's role

Americans are feeling more positively toward China a year after Donald Trump became the US president, with 53 percent of them saying they have a favorable opinion of China, the highest in nearly three decades, according to the latest Gallup World Affairs survey.

Impressed by the Gallup poll, which was conducted in February, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi cited its results at his press briefing on Thursday on the sidelines of the annual session of China's top legislature in Beijing. "Cooperation is the main thrust of China-US relations. Our people enjoy close and extensive exchanges," Wang said. "I hope people will pay more attention to such positive things," he added.

It seems the favorable rating for China will rise further in the years ahead, because despite the hyping up of the "China threat" theory in US media and the branding of Beijing as a "rival" by the White House, China's image in the US has not suffered. The number of people seeing China more positively has risen 3 percentage points from last year, according to the 2018 Gallup poll.
