BEIJING, May 23 (Xinhua) -- China hopes the improving Vietnam-U.S. relations will benefit regional peace, stability and development, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Monday.

As Vietnam's neighbor, China is glad to see the country develop "normal cooperative relations" with all other countries, including the United States, spokesperson Hua Chunying told a routine press briefing.

Hua's comments came as American President Barack Obama is paying his first visit to Vietnam.

Earlier on Monday, Obama announced in Hanoi that the United States is lifting a decades-long arms embargo on Vietnam.

China hopes the move will be conducive to regional peace, stability and development, Hua said, noting that the arms embargo was "a product of the Cold War" and should not continue to exist.
