Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Monday received in Beijing a bipartisan delegation of the US Senate led by Senator Chuck Schumer, China Central Television reports.

The TV channel indicated that the US Senate delegation began its visit to China on October 7 from Shanghai and after Beijing plans to visit the city of Xi’an. During their visit to Shanghai, the senators met with the Secretary of the Shanghai Committee of the Communist Party of China, Chen Jining, who said that healthy and stable Sino-American relations are beneficial for both countries and for the whole world.

The Chinese side has not yet published any other details.

CBS News previously reported that a bipartisan delegation from the US Senate plans to visit China, Japan and South Korea during the October recess of the upper house of the US Congress.

As it became known earlier, the US Senate delegation hoped to be received by Chinese President Xi Jinping. The office of one of the delegation members (Senator Mike Crapo from Idaho) confirmed plans for a meeting with the leader of the PRC, but clarified that these contacts have not yet been confirmed.

Later, the Chinese Embassy in the United States reported that the diplomatic mission does not have details of the visit of a group of American congressmen, but welcomes such trips in the hope that they will help develop mutual understanding and strengthen relations between the two countries.
