With sympathy and empathy, China has offered substantial assistance to the epidemic-stricken United States in terms of anti-virus supplies, and has supported and facilitated U.S. procurement of medical supplies in China, Wang said at a press briefing in response to comments made by U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Branstad on Thursday.
The two countries are unlikely to have greater confrontation since "for purely economic reasons, it is not convenient for them to enter into a dangerous escalation," said Carrion.
"To safeguard and stabilize China-U.S. relations is the call of the people and the trend of the times," Yang said. "We urges U.S. decision-makers to respect facts of history, recognize the trend of the times, heed the visionary calls in the United States, and listen to the voice of the international community."
Noting that China achieved freedom from imperialism and colonialism, Wang said freedom, democracy and rule of law are codified in Chinas Constitution and form a key part of core socialist values.
China, he added, stands ready to continue to promote cooperation in vaccine research and development, use and production with Malaysia, and to strengthen anti-pandemic cooperation in such multilateral arenas as East Asia cooperation, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the World Health Organization to push for the building of a community of health for all.

"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.
Wang made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on China-U.S. ties.
A French colleague, also a UN news reporter, came to our office just to voice her support when she heard of the order targeting Chinese journalists.
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."
