At the briefing on March 2, Zhang announced that the council would hold a debate on multilateralism during Chinas presidency. The proposal was reminiscent of what the United States had done to break with the multilateralist camp over the past couple of years when I was reporting on UN stories.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said on Friday that what has happened shows that no obstacle is insurmountable for China and the United States, and the key lies in a true commitment to mutual respect, equality and seeking common ground while shelving differences.
The two sides, he said, should explore ways to resume exchanges at all levels in an orderly manner, establish bilateral and regional "fast lanes" and bolster cooperation in "green lanes," so as to help the two countries resume work and production and ensure the stable operation of industrial and supply chains.
On May 4, 2018, the United States moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem after Washington broke with decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital in 2017, triggering intense international criticism, including from the UN.
"The fact is as plain as day that there is no evidence supporting the claim that the novel coronavirus came from a lab," Zhao said.
Washington has never stopped attempting to sow division between China and its overseas partners with groundless claims, for example by accusing China of setting up "dept traps" in developing 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
