China will not dance to the U.S. tune, and will not sit idly by if the United States harms China's interests, Teng Jianqun, director of the Department for American Studies at the China Institute of International Studies, told Xinhua in an interview.

BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of China's State Council on Monday voiced firm support for the Chinese foreign ministry's decision to impose sanctions against U.S. senator Marco Rubio and 10 other U.S. individuals with egregious records on Hong Kong affairs.
He made the remarks in a signed article titled "Respect History, Look to the Future and Firmly Safeguard and Stabilize China-U.S. Relations," which was published Friday.

However, he acknowledged that the current political climate in the United States might make that difficult as the November presidential elections draw near.
