WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- China-U.S. relations are at "a very critical moment" and the two countries have to "make the right choices" for the long-term interests of the two peoples and of the world, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
Maggiorelli, a professor of political science at Bogota's Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, said that China's prudence was evident in recent statements by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who rejected any attempt to start a "new Cold War" that would destabilize both nations and risk global progress.
Asked about Washington's criticism of the World Health Organization (WHO) and decision to withdraw from the organization amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Maggiorelli said the U.S. decision to withdraw from the organization is "undoubtedly due to political reasons and not health concerns," Maggiorelli said.
China's major achievements in the past decades show that the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics fits China and has also benefited the world, Wang said.
This is a political virus which is understandably questioned and rebuked by people in the United States and the international community, he said.
The airport has received flight resumption plans from both Chinese and ROK airlines.
The supplies are due to arrive in Laos by the end of August.
In particular, Li said, the Chinese and Sri Lankan governments and people have been looking out for each other and sharing weal and woe in the joint combat against the COVID-19 pandemic, which has consolidated and elevated their friendship.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks at a press briefing when asked to comment on a survey released by the U.S.-China Business Council (USCBC).
