The U.S. lawmakers and heads of U.S. non-governmental organizations targeted by Chinas sanctions have egregious records on Hong Kong affairs. They have recklessly distorted and slandered the "one country, two systems" principle and flagrantly interfered in Hong Kong affairs.
The General Assembly has renewed a long-standing call every year in the past nearly three decades for an end to the U.S. economic, commercial and financial embargo against Cuba, which was first imposed in 1960.
Cooperation is vital for all countries to deal with their common crises, the expert said, emphasizing they should join hands in various fields such as vaccine development and finding solutions to restart the economy.
"China will not allow these people to get their way," said Wang.
As a result, the relationship between the worlds top two economies now faces what Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi recently described as the most serious challenge since the two sides forged diplomatic ties 40 years ago.
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).
"We have enshrined in the Constitution our commitment to peaceful development, and we are the first country in the world to make such a solemn pledge. We will continue to adhere to the path of peaceful development, and will never seek hegemony or expansionism. We will always be a staunch force for peace," Wang stressed.
"It is preposterous for the dirty-handed United States to preach a clean network," Wang said.
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.
National security is a nations top priority and the prerequisite for a country to survive and thrive. The legislation for Hong Kong is aimed at eliminating the loopholes in national security and ensuring Hong Kongs long-term stability and prosperity, which is part of Chinas internal affairs in which no other country has the right to interfere.
