BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- China is ready to make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
Cao said in as early as January, the cooperation zone started to take precautionary measures against COVID-19, and a headquarters was established to make anti-coronavirus plans.
"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.
There is not such neighborhood committee structure in the United States, and public health services might have served this purpose if the American system had been properly funded, according to the article.
"The root cause is that some American politicians who are biased against and hostile to China are using their power to smear China with fabrications and impede normal ties with China under various pretexts," said Wang, pointing out that such American politicians ultimately want to drag China and the United States into renewed conflict and confrontation and plunge the world into chaos and division again.
Collin Yabaki, director of Fiji's Heritage and Arts Department, told Xinhua on the sideline of the visit to the National Archives of Fiji by Chinese Ambassador Qian Bo that cultural exchange is a bridge and one of the best ways to help the two countries and peoples deepen their mutual understanding and enhance the friendly cooperative ties.
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.
The cooperation between the two countries has never been a case of one party giving favor to the other, or one party taking advantage of the other, said Wang.

Pompeo's groundless claims about China have aroused strong condemnation from the Chinese Embassy in the Czech Republic.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The United States should better understand the realities in Asia and refrain from taking advantage of any disputes in the region or even escalating the situation, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
