BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said Friday that the U.S. attempts to smear and slander China's political system and drive a wedge between the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Chinese people are doomed to fail.
Noting that the world is a global village, Wang said that all parties should unite and cooperate to build a strong fortress to defend global public health and jointly oppose stigmatization of the virus and politicization of the pandemic.
The spokesperson said that focusing on fighting the virus and saving lives should be the one true task at hand for the United States, not regurgitating excuses to shift the blame to China, as confirmed cases in the country surged over 5 million and deaths over 160,000. Enditem
The NDMA chairman said China not only helped Pakistan battle the pandemic, but also assisted the country in fighting the locust swarms by providing pesticide and related equipment.
Meanwhile, Ahmed al-Banna, an Egyptian designer and consultant of Egypt's new capital project, said the CSCEC not only ensured the project's continuous production, but also implemented effective anti-pandemic measures.
The past 41 years has not all been smooth sailing for China-U.S. relations, Yang said, noting there have been ups and downs and even major setbacks on the way. "However, the two countries have always approached their relationship from a historical perspective and with the bigger picture in mind."
In the meantime, China is prepared to strengthen maritime cooperation with other littoral countries, deepen mutual security confidence, and advance joint development, so as to make the South China Sea a sea of peace, friendship and cooperation, he added. Enditem
