China hopes U.S. can overcome COVID-19 at early date: spokesperson
Such disciplined and comprehensive approach stems from a system of governance designed to serve the long-term and fundamental interests of the people, rather than one that is exploited by a few politicians in some western countries for shortsighted goals and their own interests..
China was the first to put its signature on the UN Charter. China has joined almost all international treaties and agreements, and has been faithfully fulfilling its due international responsibilities and obligations..
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 move is nothing but a hysterical outburst of hegemonism after these U.S. politicians failed in their attempts to manipulate Hong Kong affairs, the spokesperson said on Sunday.
Created every five years since 1953, the Five-Year Plan is a major feature of Chinas governance system, setting growth targets and defining development policies. It allows the authorities to map out strategies for overall economic and social development and to advance with the times.
They have also realized their long-term calculation to use Hong Kong for infiltration and subversion activities against the Chinese mainland so as to contain the development of China will come to nothing, the spokesperson added.
He said the Chinese side is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side and make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side.
The past 41 years has not all been smooth sailing for China-U.S. relations, Yang said, noting there have been ups and downs and even major setbacks on the way. "However, the two countries have always approached their relationship from a historical perspective and with the bigger picture in mind."
Decision-makers in Washington must realize that indulging in pirate-like bullyism will only distance the country from international norms and partners, deteriorate its business environment and keep away foreign investment. At long last, these trust-breaking actions are doomed to boomerang. Enditem
BEIJING, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- A spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of Chinas State Council said some U.S. politicians have fully exposed their hegemonic traits over the so-called sanctions against heads of Chinese central government agencies responsible for Hong Kong affairs and officials of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government.
From China and Japan in Asia, Germany in Europe, to Brazil and Argentina in Latin America, a bunch of U.S. trade partners have suffered from tariff sanctions or unfair agreements skewed towards some short-term American interests.
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.
Zhang said that India unilaterally changed the status quo of Kashmir through constitutional amendments in August 2019, stoking tensions in the region. A year later, there is no fundamental improvement but a risk of further escalation in the situation of Kashmir, according to the spokesperson.
As a major and responsible country, China is open and above board, and is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side and make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side, he noted.
"The U.S. move to turn China into an adversary is a fundamental, strategic miscalculation. It means that the United States is funneling its strategic resources in the wrong area," he said.
"China-U.S. cooperation has never been a case of one party giving favor to the other, or one party taking advantage of the other. Both countries have benefited much from this cooperation," he stressed.
PNG recorded its highest daily increase of COVID-19 infections on Wednesday with 55 new cases, taking the countrys official total to 269, with 191 currently active.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- When talking about his work at the Central Intelligence Agency, the former director Mike Pompeo has never been that honest: "We lied, we cheated, we stole ... It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment."
The EEAS said in the statement the arrests "further stoke fears that the National Security Law (for Hong Kong) is being used to stifle freedom of expression and of the media in Hong Kong."
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, said that the United States should work with China to develop a bilateral relationship based on coordination, cooperation and stability, so as to bring China-U.S. relations back to the right track.
It has become increasingly clear that each time Washington abused the national security pretext to attack foreign industries or companies, it actually reveals the governments indulgence in protectionism, hegemonism and bullyism, which is akin to "modern piracy," as a German official has said.
In the meantime, China is prepared to strengthen maritime cooperation with other littoral countries, deepen mutual security confidence, and advance joint development, so as to make the South China Sea a sea of peace, friendship and cooperation, he added. Enditem
In response, the Chinese mission said "Hong Kong is a region based on the rule of law," stressing that "the Law of the Peoples Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has clear provisions on respect for and protection of human rights, and protection of rights and freedoms including freedom of speech and the press."
