BEIJING, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Friday held a telephone conversation with Josep Borrell, the European Union (EU)'s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy.

During their phone talks, Wang said that China-EU cooperation is the mainstream while competition and confrontation are not desirable, adding that the two sides should step up communication, enhance trust and dispel misgivings, and make joint preparations for this year's China-EU leaders' meeting in a bid to promote steady and sustainable development of China-EU relations.

He also said that Lithuania's Taiwan-related issue is not an issue between China and Europe, but an issue between China and Lithuania, adding that it is not a trade issue, but a political one.

Wang added that the EU side should urge Lithuania to return to the right track of the One-China principle as soon as possible.
