Besides building the lab, a group of Chinese experts brought technical training and testing protocols to the new facility.
It is "a very negative trend that we need to defend ourselves against," Allen said, adding that both sides should work on building up mutual trust, "which is at a historic low right now."
In return, China sent 12 vessels containing more than 1,000 containers of raw materials to supply the struggling garment factories in Cambodia in mid-March. Moreover, China also sent medical experts and COVID-19-testing devices to help support Cambodia's combat against the virus, he said.
The supplies are due to arrive in Laos by the end of August.
China's U.S. policy is always consistent and stable, and in the meantime, China is also prepared for possible bumps and storms ahead, Wang said during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.

CHANGCHUN, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- An air route linking the city of Yanji in northeast China's Jilin Province and Daegu in the Republic of Korea (ROK) will resume operations on Aug. 20, according to the government of Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture.
It is neither necessary nor possible for the two sides to change each other, Wang stressed. "Instead, we should respect the choice independently made by the people of the other side."
Passengers who fly to the ROK will transit in Daegu and enter the country at the Incheon International Airport, according to ROK's epidemic prevention policy.
Wang said this statement is yet another proof of the Philippines' independent foreign policy, which embodies the common aspiration of the regional countries to pursue peace and development.
