China welcomes all foreign businesses: spokesperson
ByteDance, TikToks parent company, said Friday in a statement that Washingtons ban on the popular app has started a dangerous precedent violating the freedom of expression and the open-market principle, and it will "pursue all remedies available ... if not by the Administration, then by the U.S. courts."
"The Chinese people are also very much shocked. They feel very disappointed about what is happening in this country towards China," said Cui. "Theres a rising anger among the Chinese public."
The Global Consensus Statement story
To turn the current dangerous tide in the bilateral relationship around and put it back on the right track, the United States needs to immediately stop pushing in the wrong direction and start taking de-escalatory and remedial actions.
China has no intention to fight a "diplomatic war" with the United States as it will only hurt the interests of the two peoples even more, Wang said.
After I returned to China, the United States continued to tighten its grip. In May, the United States announced that it would shorten the period of stay for the work visas of all Chinese journalists in the United States to 90 days, causing great uncertainty among them.
Meanwhile, to contribute to the protection of fishery resources in the region, Chinas 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.
Zhao said China had been containing the COVID-19 epidemic in an open, transparent and responsible manner, earnestly implementing its duties and obligations under the International Health Regulations, and actively carrying out international prevention and control cooperation.
The anti-China forces in the United States have groundlessly smeared the national security legislation for Hong Kong and introduced the so-called U.S. sanctions targeting officials of the central government agencies responsible for Hong Kong affairs and the HKSAR government. It exposed the hegemonic nature of these anti-China forces in the United States.
In a recent interview with Xinhua, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China and the United States, the worlds two largest economies, should work for mutual benefit on an equal footing, stop attempts at decoupling and advance the relationship through cooperation, and live up to their responsibility for the world.
It needs to be stressed again that the Chinese government is determined to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, implement the "one country, two systems" principle, and oppose external interference in Hong Kong affairs.
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 peoples lives around the world, he said.
"In the name of so-called democracy and freedom, Pompeo is attacking China without any substantiation, tarnishing China, trying to make China scapegoat for all existing problems and deliberately fomenting discord between other countries and China," the embassy said.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Instigation for confrontation and division was not rare in history, but was all rebuked by the people, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on Wednesday.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday issued an executive order banning any U.S. transactions with the Chinese tech firm ByteDance, owner of TikTok, starting in 45 days.
In the past half year after returning to China, I often look back at my days in New York. I find the United States a land of contradictions with many different faces. In New York, I saw a diverse and inclusive American society; in the UN, I saw a headstrong nation defying multilateralism, and always throwing sanctions on whoever it sees disagreeable.
"I want to be very honest and frank with all of you, the real question for America is: Is the United States ready to live with another country with a different history, different culture, different system, but with no intention to compete for global dominance with the United States?" Cui asked. "Are you ready to live with us in peace? This is the fundamental question. Hopefully, politicians, diplomats, journalists, scholars here could think about this really seriously."
HAIKOU, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- A total of 12 overseas enterprises, including tourism giant TUI Group from Germany, signed cooperation agreements on major projects within the free trade port in south Chinas Hainan Province on Thursday.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday that the growth in both Chinas investment in Malaysia and Malaysias exports to China in the first half of this year despite the impact of COVID-19 has demonstrated the strong complementarity and vitality of the bilateral cooperation.
In pursuing the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, Yang said China has made tremendous achievements, and contributed significantly to safeguarding world peace and stability and promoting common development of all countries.
Over the past few decades, he said, Sino-U.S. exchanges have promoted global peace and stability and economic and social development. The cooperation between the two countries at bilateral and multilateral levels has helped solve many global problems. A "new cold war" is not a solution to differences and contradictions. Dialogue is the effective way to solve problems. Enditem
In their messages, foreign political party leaders said they think the CPC is the guarantee for Chinas development and revitalization as well as the guarantee for the worlds peace and development.
Given its failure to tackle the COVID-19 health crisis, the Trump administration also tried to shift blame on the World Health Organization and pulled the United States out of the UN body.
In the meantime, there are new risks and challenges in the implementation of "one country, two systems," the most prominent of which is heightened national security risk, Zhao added.
China would not swallow the arbitrary and unscrupulous move, and Chinas countermeasure is legitimate, justified and lawful, which also fully conforms to diplomatic norms, Wang underscored.
Such moves naturally gain little support, said Wang.
"It is preposterous for the dirty-handed United States to preach a clean network," Wang said.
The EEAS said in the statement the arrests "further stoke fears that the National Security Law (for Hong Kong) is being used to stifle freedom of expression and of the media in Hong Kong."
In fact, the law has enjoyed immense popularity in Hong Kong, as millions of residents have signed in support. Social order has obviously improved and life has returned to peace and tranquility. Human rights and freedoms in Hong Kong also remain well protected.
