Last Updated(Beijing Time):2004-11-14 09:30

"I would submit it's the best relationship that the United States has had with China in over 30 years," Powell told the CNBC news program "The Wall Street Journal Report," according to a transcript released Saturday.

"I have found the Chinese leadership over the last three or four years that I've been secretary of state to be very helpful as we worked our way through problems on the subcontinent, the challenge that we faced two years ago between India and Pakistan," when the nuclear rivals were on the brink of war, he said.

Powell said China has played a leadership role on North Korea, noting that it hosted six-party talks aimed at ending the country's nuclear ambitions.

"China is playing a very helpful role in the resolution of the problem with North Korea," Powell said.

Calling China an "important country," he said: "What we want to do is engage China, watch how they develop in the future, watch it with caution, but not with fear, watch it for the purpose of moving along with China and not trying to contain China."
