Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who is also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, spoke with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken via phone on Monday, with Wang urging the US to stop cracking down on China and putting up new obstacles to bilateral relations. China's diplomatic and domestic policies are open and transparent, and the US should not be blinded by ideology, Wang noted.

The call, which took place after the curtain fell on the widely-watched 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), is seen by Chinese experts as demonstrating that China's US policy is consistent, and that it is committed to pursuing stable and constructive relations while being willing to defend its own interests in the face of US provocation. The conversation between Wang and Blinken is also believed to pave the way for further talks between the world's two biggest economies. 

During the phone call, Blinken said that the US has been paying close attention to the 20th National Congress of the CPC and the report to the Congress.
