Kerry says U.S. not seeking to contain China

BEIJING (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday that the United States is not seeking to contain China, as the two countries began high-level annual talks in Beijing.

The United States welcomes a peaceful, stable China that contributes to stability in the region and plays a responsible role, he added.

Despite differences, the two have the ability to find common ground, Kerry said.
