BEIJING - China welcomes the United States to participate in Asia-Pacific affairs "in a constructive manner," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a press conference Tuesday.

In response to a question about Secretary of State John Kerry's remarks on the United States' policy toward the Asia Pacific region, Hua said China is ready to carry out healthy interaction with the United States in the Asia-Pacific region so as to jointly maintain regional peace, stability and prosperity.

During his visit to Japan on Monday, Kerry made a speech under the title "Remarks on a 21st Century Pacific Partnership" in Tokyo.

In his speech, Kerry elaborated on the US strategy of "rebalancing" its interests in the Asia-Pacific region, calling it the US "dream for the Pacific region."

In response, Hua said China holds an open, inclusive and all-win perspective on the Asia-Pacific region.

"Persistent peace and common prosperity are the universal dream of all the countries in the Asia-Pacific region," she said.
