"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.

China never intends to and will never interfere in U.S. elections or other U.S. internal affairs. Likewise, the United States must abandon its fantasy of remodeling China to U.S. needs. It must stop its meddling in Chinas internal affairs, and stop its irrational cracking down on Chinas legitimate rights and interests, he said.

"From the outset of the normalization process, China-U.S. relations have always been based on the common understanding that both sides recognize and respect each others different social system," said Yang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee.

"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.

U.S. arms sales to Taiwan seriously breach the three China-U.S. joint communiques, especially the August 17 Communique, severely undermine Chinas sovereignty and security interests, and gravely violate basic norms of international relations, said Wang. "China firmly opposes this."

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.
However, their awkward and dirty tricks will fool no clear and rational minds across the world. If those politicians continue moving in the wrong direction, Washingtons dwindling credibility will be further eroded and more shame will be brought onto its diplomacy. Enditem

Most recently, Washington abruptly ordered the closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, an unjustified and reckless political provocation.
