BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi had an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency on Wednesday on current China-U.S. relations. Please see the attachment for the full text of the interview. Enditem.
To conduct dialogues does not mean to make the two sides fully aligned, but to increase mutual trust and seek common grounds while reserving differences, said Ruan Zongze, executive vice president of the China Institute of International Studies..
Carrion said he agreed with top Chinese official Yang Jiechi who recently underscored the importance of maintaining respectful and productive bilateral China-U.S. ties..
Moreover, the United States keeps increasing and showing off its military presence in the South China Sea, he said. In the first half of this year alone, it sent military aircraft there more than 2,000 times.
Focusing on saving American peoples lives, instead of political shows, is what American health officials should do now, Zhao said. Enditem
"But what is important is that no one should unilaterally shut the door for dialogue at any time," Wang said. "Difference, misjudgment or confrontation should not be allowed to dominate the bilateral relations."
An epidemic, knowing no boundaries or races, is the common enemy of humanity. Solidarity and cooperation can be the most powerful weapons against the virus, and the most urgent task is to save lives, according to Wang.

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.
Such moves naturally gain little support, said Wang.
China will not dance to the U.S. tune, and will not sit idly by if the United States harms Chinas interests, Teng Jianqun, director of the Department for American Studies at the China Institute of International Studies, told Xinhua in an interview.
BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of Chinas State Council on Monday voiced firm support for the Chinese foreign ministrys decision to impose sanctions against U.S. senator Marco Rubio and 10 other U.S. individuals with egregious records on Hong Kong affairs.
In a handover ceremony held at the airport, Muhammad Afzal, chairman of Pakistans National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), appreciated the government and people of China for the continuous assistance to his country during the pandemic.
A spokesperson with the office said the 11 U.S. individuals, including members of the U.S. Congress and heads of several U.S. non-governmental organizations, have notorious records on affairs related to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) of China. These include coming up with Hong Kong-related bills, blatantly supporting "Hong Kong independence" organizations and violent radicals, or smearing the "one country, two systems" and the law on safeguarding national security in Hong Kong by various means.
Seeking reelection, U.S. President Donald Trump will probably "use that tension with China, which he sees as a rival of the United States, to score electoral points," said Carrion.
Such a blatant act of bullying runs against the World Trade Organizations principles of openness, transparency and non-discrimination and has exposed the hegemonic nature of the world sole superpower.
Chinas economy has become more intertwined with the world, as shown by the remarkable increase in imports and exports in June, and growing trade with partners such as the ASEAN and the Belt and Road countries. Hyping up the theory that China is self-isolated not only goes against the facts, but also leads to many enterprises missing the opportunities of sharing the cake of Chinas growth.
The announcement came as I was about to attend a press conference held by the Chinese mission to the United Nations (UN).
By the end of July, all the subgrade earthwork, over 90 percent of the bridges and over 95 percent of the tunnels on the domestic section of the China-Laos Railway had been completed, according to the China Railway. Enditem
Timoci Balenaivalu, acting principal archivist of the National Archives of Fiji, said archives is the records of a countrys history, and countries like Fiji and China can learn from history and culture to better their future cooperation.
"After establishment of diplomatic ties, and thanks to concerted efforts on both sides, China-U.S. relations have made historic progress despite ups and downs along the way," he said.
NEW YORK, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- "Respect science" and "hard work" are two core values conveyed by Chinese education. These values, together with the effective guidance of the government, enabled the Chinese people to win the war against the epidemic, according to an article published Monday on The New Yorker.
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.
It "will be done within the framework of the concept of building a community with a shared future for humanity," Kashin said.
