BEIJING, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Bilateral cooperation is the only right choice for the United States and China, experts from various countries have said.
China and the United States are two major countries with different social systems, histories and cultures, and each has its own interests and concerns, which is natural, he noted.
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.
"Nonetheless, for some time, some politicians in the United States have kept making false statements and groundless remarks against China. They have viciously attacked the CPC and China's political system. They have deliberately distorted and even attempted to write off the history of China-U.S. relations for the past nearly 50 years," Yang noted.
"I believe there are sectors in the United States that are very concerned about China's growth and competitiveness in various fields," said the diplomat.
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, in a signed article published on Aug. 7 called on both sides to develop a bilateral relationship based on coordination, cooperation and stability, so as to bring China-U.S. relations back onto the right track.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- China has provided the United States with over 26.5 billion face masks and other medical supplies, and hopes that the United States can overcome the COVID-19 epidemic at an early date, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Friday.
"I have been to China three times. China has a rich history and culture just as what Fiji does. Cultural exchange like today's visit will help us know better each other. Needless to say, we need to respect each other's history and culture and this will help us enjoy good relationship and cooperation," he said.
In sharp contrast to the United States' approach, more than 70 countries expressed their support for the legislation at a meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council, representing the shared voice of the international community.
