Roundup: U.S. should meet China halfway instead of inciting new Cold War, say politicians, experts
They supported and used anti-China "pawns" like Jimmy Lai Chee-ying to incite violence, undermine the rule of law and social order in Hong Kong and sabotage the citys prosperity and stability..
Wang noted that next year will mark the 100th anniversary of the CPC, stressing that the great endeavor of the Chinese people under the CPC leadership has been recorded in the history of modernization as an outstanding, epoch-making chapter..
China has no intention to fight a "diplomatic war" with the U.S. side as it will only hurt the interests of the two peoples even more, Wang said..
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."
Secondly, "our two countries, of course, are very different in terms of historical heritage, culture, economic development, and political system, and so on and so forth. These differences will be there, maybe for quite a long time to come," he said.
"If we have a close look at the history of our relations since President (Richard) Nixons visit to China, or since Dr. (Henry) Kissinger visit to China, several things are quite clear," said the ambassador.
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.
Chinas commitment to deeper reform and wider opening-up gives confidence to the world to face up to the economic turbulence as some politicians in the United States abused their state power to bring down certain non-U.S. enterprises. The U.S. practice is nothing but political manipulation and makes things worse especially when many economies continue to flounder amid the pandemic.
The signing ceremony also unveiled 20 investment-promotion projects that are open to global investors, in areas such as new-energy vehicles, tourism, offshore trade and duty-free retail.
Simon Compaore, president of the Peoples 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.
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.
Esper said that amid tensions between the two countries, the two militaries should maintain dialogue and consultation to manage crises, avoid misjudgment and reduce risks. Enditem
Against the backdrop of globalization and the rampant COVID-19 pandemic, this is not the right style and approach to conduct international politics, said Paunov, noting that solidarity and cooperation are more powerful than fighting alone.
In the interview, Wang refuted a series of recent U.S. moves hurting bilateral ties, including U.S. closing the Chinese Consulate-General in Houston, launching global campaign against Chinese companies, making fierce attacks on the Communist Party of China and interfering into Chinas internal affairs.
"It is not just the depth of dependence, it is also the breadth. Pick through the latest earnings season and you come across countless examples of U.S. tech company executives highlighting their strength in China," it added.

Zhao added that with the assistance and authorization of the central government, the HKSAR has actively rendered assistance to Germany in accordance with the Basic Law and within the framework of the extradition agreement, and has also ratified a similar agreement with France.
It is regrettable that the disgraceful behaviors have been viewed as a motto by a handful of hardliners in Washington, including Pompeo himself, the incumbent U.S. secretary of state, and White House trade advisor Peter Navarro.
As a matter of fact, U.S. allies, including Canada and European countries, have become jittery over the recent U.S. protectionism.
"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.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said Friday that China and the United States must never allow a handful of self-serving U.S. politicians to push the bilateral relationship into serious jeopardy.
Noting that the world is a global village, Wang said that all parties should unite and cooperate to build a strong fortress to defend global public health and jointly oppose stigmatization of the virus and politicization of the pandemic.
Washington has never stopped launching disinformation and defamation campaigns against China. Certain political leaders in recent days spared no efforts to stigmatize China over the coronavirus, which has drawn strong worldwide condemnation. More ridiculously, the U.S. embassy and consulates in China last month retweeted an apparently photoshopped picture uploaded by the spokesperson of the State Department, trying to cook up a story about Chinas human rights violation in Xinjiang.
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.
