"If China were to mimic Trump's gambit -- alleging, without providing evidence, that some U.S. multinationals are potential national-security threats -- it could force them to sell their operations to 'very Chinese' buyers.

Forty years on, while China and the United States are quite different in social system and many other aspects, such differences have not affected the peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation between the two countries, and they should not affect their bilateral ties in the future, he said.
