"The attempt by the United States to create a 'New Cold War' trap and to form cliques to contain China will not succeed, nor will it be in anyone's interest," the Chinese Embassy stressed. "We advise some U.S. politicians to stop spreading political viruses, stop slandering China with words and deeds, and stop interfering in China's internal affairs."
QUITO, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- China's willingness to keep the door open to dialogue with the United States to address differences and mitigate tensions between the two powers should be lauded, Ecuador's former Foreign Minister Francisco Carrion has said.
China has a huge presence in the U.S. market as well as investment, as does the United States in China, which proves there are "very deep trade ties" between the two, he noted.
"Those who play with fire will get burnt," Zhao said, urging certain American people not to have illusions about issues concerning China's core interests.
The wrongdoing of the two countries has damaged the foundation of Hong Kong's judicial cooperation with Germany and France and deviated from the purpose of safeguarding the justice and the rule of law in judicial cooperation.
The United States has recently taken a number of provocative actions in the South China Sea, breaching its longstanding commitment of not taking sides, and blatantly interfering in the territorial disputes, Wang said.
John W. Allen, former vice chairman of the United Nations (UN) Business Council, told Xinhua that he applauds the mutual success that has occurred for the two countries over the past 41 years, and is distressed by the negative language being used to describe China in the U.S. press.
China is always a firm defender of the international order and the international system. Since the founding of New China more than 70 years ago, the country has never started a war, or occupied an inch of land of others, Wang noted.
The move is nothing but a hysterical outburst of hegemonism after these U.S. politicians failed in their attempts to manipulate Hong Kong affairs, the spokesperson said on Sunday. Enditem
The Chinese side has proposed that the two countries draw up three lists respectively on cooperation, dialogue and issues that need proper management, and draw up a road-map for future interactions, he added.
As COVID-19 takes its toll on the global economy, China and the United States should stop attempts at decoupling and advance the relationship through cooperation, and live up to their responsibility for the world, said Wang.
