China has said that it is up to the US to mend diplomatic ties strained over Washington's sale of arms to Taiwan and a recent meeting between President Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama.
Yang Jiechi, China's foreign minister, said on Sunday that the arms sale and the meeting had undermined China's interests.
"The responsibility for the difficulties in China-US relations does not lie with China," Yang said on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the National People's Congress, China's legislature, in Beijing.
"The United States should take seriously China's position and respect China's core interests."
