Wang stressed China has no intention of edging the United States out of Asia as the US has its practical interests in the Asia-Pacific, and rather China would like to see the United States play a positive role in the region.
Lots of problems won't get solved without cooperation between China and the United States, he said, adding that China is willing to realize sound interaction with the United States in the Asia- Pacific and contribute to the healthy development of China-US relations.
Kerry said Washington is willing to work together with Beijing to ensure the success of Xi's visit. The United States supports a strong and prosperous China, and would like to see China go ahead with further development.
The United States is ready to establish strategic mutual trust with China and will explore sound interaction in handling Asia- Pacific affairs, Kerry said.
He said the United States has never sought to confront China in the region. Washington appreciates the important and positive role Beijing has played in the Iran nuclear program, Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and climate change, among others.
Kerry said the United States will continue to deepen cooperation with China in various fields, and also highly appreciates China's prominent contribution to the Global War Against Fascism.
The two sides also exchanged views on the situation in the South China Sea.
Wang stressed that China has adopted a "dual-track" approach in addressing the South China Sea issue with the ASEAN countries and established a mechanism for negotiations of the issue.
China and the ASEAN countries have also established a new platform for risk management and peaceful discussion of proposals raised by parties concerned, Wang said.
He said China always commits itself to peaceful settlement of disputes with related countries through consultation and negotiation, and countries outside the region should respect the efforts of China and the ASEAN countries.
Kerry said Washington is concerned about the situation in the South China Sea, but will not intervene in specific disputes. The United States supports China to resolve the South China Sea disputes with related countries through peaceful negotiations.
On Wednesday, Wang also met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, New Zealand Foreign Minister Murrary McCully, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se, and Pakistan's National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz.
