BEIJING, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) -- China said Tuesday that the United States should immediately stop the political oppression of U.S.-based Chinese media and journalists.
China was the first to put its signature on the UN Charter. China has joined almost all international treaties and agreements, and has been faithfully fulfilling its due international responsibilities and obligations.
China and the United States should respect each other's core interests and major concerns, said Yang, stressing that China's resolve to defend its sovereignty, security, and development interests is unshakable.
"The Taiwan question concerns China's sovereignty, territorial integrity and core interests. China has firm resolve in upholding its sovereignty and security," said Wang.
In particular, Li said, the Chinese and Sri Lankan governments and people have been looking out for each other and sharing weal and woe in the joint combat against the COVID-19 pandemic, which has consolidated and elevated their friendship.
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.
"China is confident in working with countries in the region to overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 epidemic, maintain development momentum and safeguard common well-being of the people in the region," he said. Enditem
"It is preposterous for the dirty-handed United States to preach a 'clean network,'" Wang said.
Wang stressed that Chinese journalists have followed journalism ethics and the principle of objectiveness, fairness, truthfulness and accurateness when conducting reporting activities across the world, including in the United States.
