The U.S. practice has no factual basis at all and is sheer malicious slander and political manipulation in an attempt to maintain its high-tech monopoly, he said.

Some U.S. politicians are peddling that "the engagement policy toward China fails," aiming to shift the governments responsibility for its ineffective response to the epidemic and serve the political needs of elections, said Santoro, adding such a move can only lead to a more complicated situation for the United States and other countries.

China and Arab countries have witnessed a drastic growth in economic and trade cooperation over the past few years.
As a result, the relationship between the worlds top two economies now faces what Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi recently described as the most serious challenge since the two sides forged diplomatic ties 40 years ago.
The anti-China forces in the United States have long been concocting rumors and fabricating accusations, blatantly meddling in Hong Kong affairs under the pretext of human rights, democracy and autonomy.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said on Friday that China and the United States should assume a strategic height and long-term perspective and keep their relations in the right direction with a sense of responsibility for history and the people.
Noting that there is a long history behind the situation in the South China Sea, the ambassador said, "we have our historical claim and we have strong historical and legal support for our claims, but still we are ready to negotiate with other countries concerned for a peaceful solution to the disputes.

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Politicians and experts around the globe believe that provoking a so-called new Cold War is remarkably detrimental. Instead, the United States should meet China halfway.

In the past half year after returning to China, I often look back at my days in New York. I find the United States a land of contradictions with many different faces.

Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote in an opinion published by The Washington Post that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a blistering speech about China.

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.
"Today we are in the 21st century. Why should we allow history to repeat? Why should we repeat what happened in the last century when we are faced with so many new challenges, global challenges? I dont think a new cold war would serve anybodys interests or will give us any solution to the problem," Cui said, responding to a question on the recent speech on China by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the Nixon Library.
While the two countries are quite different in social system and many other aspects, such differences have not affected bilateral peaceful coexistence and cooperation, said Wang.
