Zhou also urged the United States to take responsible measures to properly deal with its debt issues in a bid to protect the interests of investors in US treasuries, according to a statement on the website of the People's Bank of China.

Zhou made the comments after US President Barack Obama signed into law a measure to cut spending and raise the US debt ceiling, a necessary act to avert an unprecedented default on government financial obligations.
