China hopes US will provide support, facilitation for new Chinese ambassador: spokesperson

BEIJING, May 24 (Xinhua) -- China hopes that the United States will provide support and facilitation for Xie Feng, the new Chinese ambassador to the United States, as he carries out his duty, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Mao Ning made the remarks at a press conference when answering a relevant question.

Xie arrived in the United States on Tuesday to assume his post, and he spoke to Chinese and foreign reporters and people from various sectors at the airport.
