However, the U.S. government is sticking to the wrong path. By wantonly breaching the privacy of government officials targeted by the "sanctions," the United States has gone against its own stance on democracy, freedom and respect for human rights.

Wang said that China firmly supports Malaysia in hosting this year's APEC meeting, and in striving to adhere to the purposes and principles of the APEC, build an open Asia-Pacific economy, uphold the spirit of an Asia-Pacific community with a shared future and partnership, and formulate the Post-2020 Vision.

"Our message is quite clear: We urge the United States to stop acting with arrogance and prejudice, but enter into constructive dialogue with us on an equal footing. We hope that it will work with us to ease current tensions and put the relations back onto the right track of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation," he said.
