South China Sea should not be wrestling ground for international politics: Chinese FM
With COVID-19 still raging across the world, China is prepared to have mutually beneficial cooperation with the United States on epidemic control and economic recovery, learn from each other and share experience on containing COVID-19, and join together with the United States the global response and multilateral cooperation in fighting COVID-19, he said..
"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.
The two major countries in the world, which share extensive common interests, stand to gain from cooperation and lose from confrontation, they said..
BRUSSELS, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Mission to the European Union (EU) said on Monday that no foreign government, organization or individual has any right or reason to interfere in Hong Kong's internal affairs.
The harder some U.S. politicians try to sever the strong bond between the CPC and the Chinese people, the greater indignation they will arouse among the Chinese people, he said.
An epidemic, knowing no boundaries or races, is the common enemy of humanity. Solidarity and cooperation can be the most powerful weapons against the virus, and the most urgent task is to save lives, according to Wang.
"Projects linked to the BRI such as the Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone (SSEZ) and the Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville Expressway are two ideal examples to show how BRI helps Cambodia in strengthening industrial sector and diversifying exports through transport and logistics enhancement," he said.
The EEAS said in the statement the arrests "further stoke fears that the National Security Law (for Hong Kong) is being used to stifle freedom of expression and of the media in Hong Kong."
Wang expounded on the clear-cut framework for the relationship.
"China has taken note of the relevant reports," said Wang, adding that China and India should always keep border issues in their proper position within bilateral relations, preventing differences from escalating into disputes.
These actions will by far create trade unpredictability and render the domino effect through the introduction of such policy by other members as retaliations, he added.
Such moves naturally gain little support, said Wang.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said Friday that China and the United States must never allow a handful of self-serving U.S. politicians to push the bilateral relationship into serious jeopardy.
BEIJING, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's top securities regulator said Saturday that resolving issues of common concern through dialogue is the only way to achieve win-win results, when responding to a recent U.S. report released by the President's Working Group on Financial Markets.
Trump is essentially doing what the United States has long accused China of doing: disrespecting private property, presuming guilt without evidence, eroding foreign firms' legitimate rights without compensation, and using arbitrary, opaque rules to block them from operating in the country, according to Wei.
The assertion is just a rehash of the Cold War mentality, Wang said during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
Starting from common interests of both sides, China and the United States should carry out open dialogue and cooperation, it said.
The U.S. move blatantly violates international laws and basic norms governing international relations.
Over four decades ago, leaders of China and the United States made the handshake across the vast Pacific Ocean, he added, noting that what made this possible was that both countries adhered to the principle of mutual respect and seeking common ground while putting aside differences.
It needs to be stressed again that the Chinese government is determined to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, implement the "one country, two systems" principle, and oppose external interference in Hong Kong affairs.
"If China were to mimic Trump's gambit -- alleging, without providing evidence, that some U.S. multinationals are potential national-security threats -- it could force them to sell their operations to 'very Chinese' buyers. Although the Chinese government has not yet done so, the risk has become higher now," said Wei, who served as chief economist of Asian Development Bank during 2014-2016.
Noting that the situation in Hong Kong has improved markedly since the promulgation and enforcement of the law on safeguarding national security, the spokesperson said the Chinese government will remain firmly committed to the implementation of the "one country, two systems" principle, and resolutely oppose interference in Hong Kong affairs by any external forces.
They have wantonly interfered in Hong Kong affairs, with some of them being responsible for the disturbances following the now-withdrawn ordinance amendments, or U.S. sanctions on China and the HKSAR, said the spokesperson.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday issued an executive order banning any U.S. transactions with Chinese tech firm ByteDance, owner of TikTok, starting in 45 days.
