Wang made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on China-U.S. ties. Enditem The future of what many consider the world's most important bilateral relationship now hinges upon whether Washington has the much needed rationality and vision to make the right choice. The port has set up an exclusive window for the freight train services, which increased the efficiency of customs clearance by more than 60 percent. 大发路线 Under the current situation, China proposes removing all disturbances to restart as soon as possible the Code of Conduct consultation, and agreeing as early as possible on a set of rules for maintaining long-term peace and stability in the region, Wang said. China will continue to work with all countries to maintain a fair, just, open and non-discriminatory business environment, and ensure that safe, reliable and quality information technology will boost global economic recovery and help improve people's lives around the world, he said.
大发路线 Noting that China achieved freedom from imperialism and colonialism, Wang said freedom, democracy and rule of law are codified in China's Constitution and form a key part of core socialist values. He said he has witnessed the development of U.S.-China relations over the past decades, which has brought tangible benefits to the two countries and their people. The current U.S. administration has always vaunted a so-called "America First" policy, claiming to "Make America Great Again." However, when the United States repeatedly abandons multilateralism, withdraws from international responsibilities and obligations, constantly engages in ideological confrontation, and repeatedly blame foreign factors for its domestic failures, the so-called "America First" would only face more opposition and its coveted "greatness" only diminish. EnditemBEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said on Friday that what has happened shows that no obstacle is insurmountable for China and the United States, and the key lies in a true commitment to mutual respect, equality and seeking common ground while shelving differences. China has valued peace and cooperation since ancient times, and always opposes dangerous acts to divide the world along ideological lines, said Wang.Wang also noted that many international polls in recent years show that at least 90 percent of the Chinese people trust their government.
Cui made the remark when he attended the 2020 Aspen Security Forum on Aug. 4 and had an online interview with Nicholas Burns, executive director of the Aspen Strategy Group, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent of NBC News, on issues related to China-U.S. relations. "But what is important is that no one should unilaterally shut the door for dialogue at any time," Wang said. "Difference, misjudgment or confrontation should not be allowed to dominate the bilateral relations." WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The differences between the United States and China "should be seen as opportunities, possibilities for mutual learning, for cooperation," Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said. "I don't know why people like the term 'Cold War' so much. The correct lesson we should learn from past history is that such a cold war serves nobody's real interest," said Cui in an online interview with Nicholas Burns, executive director of the Aspen Strategy Group, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent of NBC News, while attending the 2020 Aspen Security Forum on Aug. 4. "We hope that the U.S. can overcome the COVID-19 epidemic at an early date." Meanwhile, a small number of U.S. politicians should stop politicizing and stigmatizing the COVID-19 issues, stop shifting the blame to China, and work with the international community to overcome the impact of the epidemic, Wang said. Enditem He believed that cultural exchange between the two countries has yielded fruitful results over the past years."I believe there are sectors in the United States that are very concerned about China's growth and competitiveness in various fields," said the diplomat.
In the past 40 years, bilateral trade between China and the United States has increased dramatically, from a negligible 2.5 billion U.S. dollars in the late 1970s to the incredible amount of over 630 billion dollars in 2018. Wang expounded on the clear-cut framework for the relationship. Simon Compaore, president of the People's Movement for Progress of Burkina Faso, said that under the strong leadership of the CPC, China is developing rapidly, and its international influence is rising. China is committed to global cooperation to promote mutual benefit and win-win results. "The U.S. move to turn China into an adversary is a fundamental, strategic miscalculation. It means that the United States is funneling its strategic resources in the wrong area," he said. "Hopefully, our American friends could have a really better understanding of the realities in our region, could really understand our concern, our perception, and what we need, what the people in the region really need, and could refrain from taking any action to take advantage of any disputes in the region or even escalate the situation," he said.
Besides the Chinese government, many Chinese companies and foundations as well as individuals have also pitched in, donating medical supplies, protective equipment and COVID-19 test kits to the Philippines. The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and the two countries should not reject each other but draw on each other's strength to achieve common development, according to Wang. BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday denounced the U.S. suppression and containment of Chinese high-tech firms by abusing state power, calling the relevant moves "a typical act of bullying" aimed at maintaining its high-tech monopoly. Wang's view shows that "China intends to continue following the path of strengthening partnership and equal cooperation with all countries that are ready for this," said Vasily Kashin, head of the Department of International Military-Political and Military-Economic Issues of Russia's National Research University -Higher School of Economics. HONG KONG, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Strained China-U.S. relations were dealt another blow as the U.S. Treasury Department announced the so-called sanctions against heads of Chinese government agencies responsible for Hong Kong affairs and officials of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

(Xinhua/Wang Ying) -- 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. 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. The U.S. administration and some U.S. politicians acted out in such an anxious and reckless manner over Hong Kong-related issues to cover up their own botched response to COVID-19, economy and other domestic problems, the spokesperson noted. The two sides, he said, should explore ways to resume exchanges at all levels in an orderly manner, establish bilateral and regional "fast lanes" and bolster cooperation in "green lanes," so as to help the two countries resume work and production and ensure the stable operation of industrial and supply chains. So far, an industrial cluster has been formed at the zone, featuring industries of building materials, petroleum equipment, high and low pressure equipment and machinery manufacturing, said Cao Xue, brand director of the strategy department of China-Africa TEDA Investment Co. Ltd., the operating body of the zone. They have also realized their long-term calculation to use Hong Kong for infiltration and subversion activities against the Chinese mainland so as to contain the development of China will come to nothing, the spokesperson added.
BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday denounced the U.S. suppression and containment of Chinese high-tech firms by abusing state power. "They must seek dialogue, especially between two great world powers, respecting their fundamental interests," said Carrion. "I recalled that Henry Kissinger has been speaking for the past 10 years of coevolution of a harmonious evolution between the two giants in the world economy and in world geopolitics," Chalom Schirman, associate professor at the University of Haifa and former Israeli diplomat, told Xinhua. He said 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. The Egyptian Communist Party supports China's rights in safeguarding sovereignty, security and its development interest, and believes that any attempt to sow dissension between the CPC and the Chinese people is doomed to fail, it said. Meanwhile, to contribute to the protection of fishery resources in the region, China's fishery authority has decided to ban fishing in the high seas west of the Galapagos Marine Reserve from September to November this year, which has been appreciated by Ecuador and other relevant countries, Wang said.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Experts from various countries view Sino-U.S. relations one of the most important bilateral relations in the world with global influence, saying that it is in the common interests of both sides as well as the international community to properly resolve differences between the two sides and bring their relations back on the track of cooperation. "Our message is quite clear: We urge the United States to stop acting with arrogance and prejudice, but enter into constructive dialogue with us on an equal footing. We hope that it will work with us to ease current tensions and put the relations back onto the right track of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation," he said.

If those politicians continue moving in the wrong direction, Washington's dwindling credibility will be further eroded and more shame will be brought onto its diplomacy. Enditem 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. Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that "Canada will impose countermeasures that will include dollar-for-dollar retaliatory tariffs." Atli, an Asia-Pacific expert, said that the Trump administration wants to push back against China's rise as a tech competitor.
"Cooperation between China and the United States has always been conducted for mutual benefit," he said, adding the two countries have had productive cooperation in such areas as counter-terrorism, non-proliferation and narcotics control, among others. 大发路线 Secondly, China will firmly follow its own path of development and pursue its rightful goal of great national rejuvenation for the Chinese people. Washington should rid itself of the delusion that Beijing will somehow change course and adopt U.S.-style political and social systems.For his part, Hishammuddin said that Malaysia attaches great importance to the robust relations with China and that their bilateral cooperation goes beyond geopolitics. To uphold world peace and promote development for all is the shared mission and responsibility for China and the United States, Yang said. "What it requires is for the two countries to view and handle their relationship in a proper manner and seek a way of peaceful co-existence despite differences." He made the remarks after visiting U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed at a joint press briefing here that the United States, a country with a poor track record of respecting other nations' sovereignty, stood "prepared to support" the Czech people if the latter were bullied by others. "China will not allow these people to get their way," said Wang.
