Amid the impact of COVID-19, trade between China and some Arab countries still registered growth.

In recent years, some forces have been distorting the truths about World War II out of their political interests, and against this backdrop of Russia-China cooperation, he added.

"If the United States is bent on going down the wrong path and doubles down on its mistakes, China is compelled to make necessary and legitimate reactions to firmly safeguard its legitimate rights and interests," said Wang.

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Foreign political party leaders have sent messages to the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, opposing the plot of some U.S. politicians who fabricated accusations to smear China and escalated provocations against China to contain its development.
China and the United States are two major countries with different social systems, histories and cultures, and each has its own interests and concerns, which is natural, he noted.
In October 2019, when Washington slapped 7.5 billion U.S. dollars in tariffs on EU cheeses, olives, and whiskey, as well as planes, helicopters and aircraft parts under the pretext of national security, the Europeans said it was protectionism and broke global trade rules.
As a matter of fact, U.S. allies, including Canada and European countries, have become jittery over the recent U.S. protectionism.
China and the United States now account for over one-third of global economic output and over 50 percent of global growth. Bilateral trade volume has increased by over 250 times since the early days of diplomatic ties and takes up one-fifth of the global total. Two-way investment has jumped from almost zero to nearly 240 billion U.S. dollars, and annual two-way visits by the two peoples have reached 5 million.
"All Confucius Institutes were established by Chinese and Indian universities after signing legally binding cooperation agreements in accordance with the principles of mutual respect, friendly consultation, equality and mutual benefit, and on the premise that the Indian side ... met the conditions for running the Institute," she added.
The anti-China forces in the United States have long been concocting rumors and fabricating accusations, blatantly meddling in Hong Kong affairs under the pretext of human rights, democracy and autonomy.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- China-U.S. relations are at "a very critical moment" and the two countries have to "make the right choices" for the long-term interests of the two peoples and of the world, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
"The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and we should not reject each other. What we should do is to draw on each other's strength to achieve common development," he said.
Jenny Clegg, senior lecturer in international studies at University of Central Lancashire, said that the China-U.S. relationship is one of the most important bilateral relationships and its deterioration would pose significant threat to world peace. Enditem
"China-U.S. cooperation has never been a case of one party giving favor to the other, or one party taking advantage of the other. Both countries have benefited much from this cooperation," he stressed.
    "The Chinese people are also very much shocked. They feel very disappointed about what is happening in this country towards China," said Cui. "There's a rising anger among the Chinese public."
In May 2019, when Washington lifted tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, Freeland said, "The reality is that this U.S. administration is openly, explicitly, and proudly protectionist," reminding the domestic industry to remain vigilant about the neighboring super power.
"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.
Since the epidemic has not yet ended, Moohialding suggested that overseas students in China follow local anti-epidemic guidelines. "Protecting ourselves would be our best support to China's epidemic prevention efforts."
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday the Chinese side is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side and make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side.
"We have noted that Australia said it welcomes China's development and hope that Australia will turn its words into concrete actions, act in line with the spirit of the China-Australia comprehensive strategic partnership and contribute to regional peace and stability," Wang said. Enditem
Decision-makers in Washington must realize that indulging in pirate-like bullyism will only distance the country from international norms and partners, deteriorate its business environment and keep away foreign investment. At long last, these trust-breaking actions are doomed to boomerang. Enditem
The HKSAR government's decision to postpone the elections due to the severe pandemic situation is a justified and necessary step to ensure safety and health of Hong Kong citizens and the safety, fairness and impartiality of the elections, the spokesperson said.
"We call on the U.S. side to heed the rational voice from home and the international community, refrain from politicizing economic issues, provide an open, fair, just and non-discriminatory business environment for market players from other countries investing and operating in the United States, and do more that is conducive to global economic development," he said.

Meanwhile, they are unjustified. Looking around, only the United States, spearheaded by its military, is building biological labs around the world and collecting without restraint biological resources abroad, and only the United States is opposed to negotiating a BWC verification protocol, he added. "No matter how the United States explains it, it cannot justify itself."
