"The problem was not simply that the nations chief diplomat was decidedly undiplomatic. Worse was his misrepresentation of history and his failure to suggest a coherent or viable path forward for managing a relationship that more than any other will define this era," he said.
"We hope that the United States will give up its obsession with its narrow self-interest, and return to the right track of openness and cooperation," Wang said. Enditem
"The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and we should not reject each other. What we should do is to draw on each others strength to achieve common development," he said.

According to Zhao, Chinas decision stems from the wrongdoings of the U.S. side. The sanctions, effective from Monday, are applied to U.S. officials, including Senators Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Tom Cotton and Pat Toomey, Representative Chris Smith, and Carl Gershman, President of the National Endowment for Democracy, Derek Mitchell, President of the National Democratic Institute, Daniel Twining, President of the International Republican Institute, Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of Human Rights Watch, and Michael J. Abramowitz, President of Freedom House.
Wang made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on China-U.S. ties.
The statement issued by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation said the United States has continuously defamed and suppressed China on a series of issues concerning Xinjiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong in recent years. The recent remarks by Pompeo are destructive and will escalate international tensions.
Spokesman Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a press briefing when asked to comment on reports saying the United States plans to sell arms to Taiwan again.
Dogu Perincek, chairman of the Patriotic Party of Turkey, said some countries are trying to hold China down economically, militarily and politically, which his party firmly opposes. The CPC is not only a miracle maker who lifts the Chinese people from poverty and realizes Chinas fast development, but also a guardian of world peace and future hope, he said.
In international relations today, dialogue is the right way for settling issues and building trust, Wang said, adding that favoring dialogue over confrontation is not only Chinas position but also the consensus of the overwhelming majority of countries.
