BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- UN Women, the United Nations' entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women, on Wednesday held a virtual ministerial roundtable meeting on ensuring progress toward gender equality amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Chinese women affairs official Huang Xiaowei delivered a keynote speech at the meeting.
Wang made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on China-U.S. ties.
"We call on the U.S. side to heed the rational voice from home and the international community, refrain from politicizing economic issues, provide an open, fair, just and non-discriminatory business environment for market players from other countries investing and operating in the United States, and do more that is conducive to global economic development," he said.

"The erroneous words and moves by the U.S. Administration constituted interference in China's internal affairs. They undermined China's interests and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations, putting the relationship in a most complex and grave situation since the establishment of diplomatic ties," said Yang.
For instance, the ambassador said, China has already solved the border issues and concluded treaties with 12 of the 14 countries with which it has land borders.
Wei stated China's principled position on questions including the South China Sea, Taiwan and the U.S. stigmatization of China, and urged the U.S. side to stop erroneous words and deeds, improve the management and control of maritime risks, avoid taking dangerous moves that may escalate the situation, and safeguard regional peace and stability.
Scowcroft, 95, who had served as U.S. national security adviser under former Presidents Gerald R. Ford and George Bush, died on Thursday of natural causes at his home in Falls Church, Virginia. Enditem
BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- China, as a responsible major fishing country, attaches great importance to the protection of the marine environment and resources and implements the strictest monitoring and control measures on overseas fishing vessels, a spokesperson said Thursday.
While the issues that generate tension between China and the United States are multiple and complex, the issues that unite them are weightier enough to save bilateral ties, he said.
