Humphrey Moshi, a professor of economics at Tanzania's leading state-run University of Dar es Salaam, said the argument that "the engagement policy toward China fails" by some U.S. politicians reflected the hypocrisy and proclivity for nationalism of U.S. politics.
China is committed to international cooperation on an equal footing, and the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind proposed by Xi Jinping has become increasingly attractive to the world.

"The United States doesn't even bother to disguise its bullying," he said, adding that it not only violates the international rules of fair trade, but also hurts the free global market environment.
According to the article, the current American failure doesn't narrowly reflect national character or values but, rather, a collapse of system: a crisis of leadership and institutional structures. Enditem
"We have great confidence in our path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. In the meantime, we also respect the development paths chosen by other nations," he said.
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."
