PHNOM PENH, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- The free trade agreement (FTA) between Cambodia and China will undoubtedly promote stronger trade and investment ties between the two countries, Cambodia's Commerce Minister Pan Sorasak said in a recent interview with Chinese media. China's major achievements in the past decades show that the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics fits China and has also benefited the world, Wang said. Wang added that as a result, bilateral ties have become one of the most deeply interwoven relationships in the world with broadest cooperation areas and most extensive common interests. "No one can deny these facts." The remarks were made by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin in response to U.S. executive orders issued Thursday, which ban transactions carried out by American companies or individuals with parent companies of WeChat and TikTok apps. This is a political virus which is understandably questioned and rebuked by people in the United States and the international community, he said. "With effective policies and timely responses, China has managed to curb the spread of the virus and at the same time kept industrial chain stable and smooth," he said. "These efforts have helped ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), especially Cambodia, mitigate the impacts from the virus on our economy."

"Once there is a new vaccine, a new testing strategy, this can be useful for further testing," Mahdi said. Enditem "It's not fair to make such allegations without giving any evidence and to accuse China of not giving American companies a level playing field while at the same time they themselves are denying Chinese companies such a level playing field. This is extremely unfair," he said. He also recalled that while the world was clamoring travel restrictions to and from China during the outbreak, Cambodia had maintained its commercial and tourist flights to and from China to ensure China's economy vis-à-vis regional supply chain remain less impacted. The United States should recalibrate the policy of rule of law, said Chris Marlin, president of Lennar International, adding that U.S. laws target certain kinds of countries and actors in a way that may appear to others as discriminatory. Given Beijing's willingness to cooperate, Castrillon believed the U.S. administration's disputes had less to do with policy than with trying to get re-elected in November.
"China has shown its interest in cooperating with other countries in the development of a vaccine against the new coronavirus, even announcing that it will make its vaccines a public good with universal access," he said. According to Jaime Suarez, executive director of the Colombia-China Chamber of Investment and Commerce, "trade wars are not promising or positive for either party." In the next two months, more medical and epidemic prevention supplies are scheduled to be dispatched from Xi'an to Italy via the China-Europe train routes to help with the anti-epidemic fight. Enditem "The U.S. has frequently abused state power to wantonly suppress non-American firms under the pretext of national security. This is blatant bullying behavior, which China firmly opposes," the spokesperson said, noting relevant U.S. moves have drawn criticism and doubts from many people within the United States and the international community. "There is still time for the Trump administration to change course and avoid damaging U.S. interests. But the clock is running -- tick tock," Wei said. Enditem

Still, it will be necessary to establish a clear framework for relations between China and the United States, given the current complex situation of ties, he said. Regarding Washington's restrictions on Chinese technology companies, the experts agreed that the measures will only isolate Americans from progress in different fields, including 5G technology in telecommunications, in which Chinese companies are at the fore.
"Wang Yi emphasized that, saying China is willing to restart mechanisms for dialogue with the United States at any level, in any area and at any time. And that is precisely what the Chinese government has done," said Castrillon, who specializes in U.S. and Chinese affairs.

BAGHDAD, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- It is a race against time. Medics are shuffling piles of swab samples waiting for COVID-19 testing in a Chinese-built lab in Iraq. Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi has recently affirmed that China rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War," said Professor David Castrillon of Externado University in Colombia's capital Bogota. China is committed to the policy of "one country, two systems," Wang reiterated, saying that with the strong support from the mainland, an improved legal environment, and the united efforts of the Hong Kong compatriots, China can surely uphold and better implement the policy of "one country, two systems." The Chinese side attaches great importance to consolidating and developing the traditional friendship between the two countries, and is willing to work with Vietnam in enhancing political mutual trust and strengthening unity and cooperation so as to push forward the relationship of the two parties and two countries, as well as their respective socialist causes for new and greater development, Xi said.

"They are showing us the way to establish a good lab," Mahdi said, noting that an important feature of the lab is its ability to receive samples around the clock all days of the week. Thirty lab workers are divided into three shifts, enabling the lab to complete 700 to 1,000 tests a day.
