China hopes U.S. can overcome COVID-19 at early date: spokesperson

At the height of COVID-19, the United States went so far as to groundlessly attack and withdraw from the World Health Organization. The current U.S. administration has pulled out of more international treaties than any one before it, making itself the most damaging force of the current international order, he added.

The Global Consensus Statement story

In response to a joint statement on Hong Kong by the foreign ministers of the Five Eyes, namely the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, on Sunday, in which they urged Hong Kong to hold legislative elections as soon as possible, Zhao said China strongly deplores and rejects it.

TIANJIN, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Although it's summer vacation, Moohialding Saleh Mohammed Al-Kahtani, a Yemeni Ph.D. student, has immersed himself in research materials in his university campus in north China's Tianjin Municipality.

Yang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee, said that the United States should work with China to develop a bilateral relationship based on coordination, cooperation and stability, so as to bring China-U.S. relations back to the right track.

Reportedly, citing an order by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, Lorenzana said the Philippines would not join navies of other countries in maritime drills in the South China Sea for fear of raising tension in the area.

Humphrey Moshi, a professor of economics at Tanzania's leading state-run University of Dar es Salaam, said the argument that "the engagement policy toward China fails" by some U.S. politicians reflected the hypocrisy and proclivity for nationalism of U.S. politics.

In response to a media query on the decision of the Ministry of Education of India to review China-India higher education cooperation programs including Confucius Institutes, spokesperson of Chinese Embassy in India Ji Rong said, "We hope Indian relevant parties can treat Confucius Institutes and China-India higher education cooperation in an objective and fair manner."

While the two countries are quite different in social system and many other aspects, such differences have not affected bilateral peaceful coexistence and cooperation, said Wang.
The two sides, he said, should explore ways to resume exchanges at all levels in an orderly manner, establish bilateral and regional "fast lanes" and bolster cooperation in "green lanes," so as to help the two countries resume work and production and ensure the stable operation of industrial and supply chains.
But its efforts to sow discord are likely to fail, noted Maggiorelli, because "the United States no longer has as much power as before, and European, Asian, African and Latin American countries want to cooperate with both countries and maintain peaceful relations."
"All issues can be put on the table for discussion," Wang said.
The first major strategic victory in the war between the Soviet Union and the Nazi Germany was achieved in the Battle of Moscow, Morozov noted, saying that the victory might not have happened if the Soviet command had not transferred fresh divisions from Siberia to the western front after making sure that the Japanese would not attack the Soviet Union.
Noting that there is a long history behind the situation in the South China Sea, the ambassador said, "we have our historical claim and we have strong historical and legal support for our claims, but still we are ready to negotiate with other countries concerned for a peaceful solution to the disputes. That's why we are working with the ASEAN countries over the years." Cui had worked for quite a few years with the ASEAN countries on drawing up the Declaration of Conduct for the parties concerned.
The port dealt with 495 China-Europe freight trains with 45,600 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) of cargos in July, up 55.17 percent and 55.1 percent year on year respectively, said Long Teng, a staff member with the customs.
    "We still need to increase testing abilities," Mahdi said. "The testing rate needs to be at least five or ten percent of our 40 million population in order to detect more and more cases."

He added that with joint efforts of China and ASEAN, two-way trade and investment grew in the first half of this year, and fast-track lanes for personnel and logistics exchanges have been established to facilitate resumption of work and production, as well as the smooth operation of industrial and supply chains.
Practice is the sole criterion of truth, Wang said. "Does China's system work for the country? The Chinese people know better than anyone else."
"To safeguard and stabilize China-U.S. relations is the call of the people and the trend of the times," Yang said. "We urges U.S. decision-makers to respect facts of history, recognize the trend of the times, heed the visionary calls in the United States, and listen to the voice of the international community."
"Their allegations are fanfare for ideological confrontation and the Cold War mentality," Yang said. "They are nothing short of discredit to the enormous efforts and contributions made throughout past decades by people across the two societies to promote the development of China-U.S. relations."
"Now we are working on the code of conduct between China and ASEAN countries, and we are making good progress. We always believe that any territorial disputes shall be resolved through negotiations by the parties directly concerned. And we certainly aim to have a diplomatic solution, a negotiated solution. This is our commitment. It's not changing," he said.
"All over the world, the United States and Russia have the largest nuclear arsenal ... this is international consensus. So they should take the lead in international nuclear disarmament," said Cui in an online interview with Nicholas Burns, executive director of the Aspen Strategy Group, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent of NBC News, while attending the 2020 Aspen Security Forum on Aug. 4.

"I want to record everything so that more people across the world could learn about China's contribution to the global anti-epidemic fight," Moohialding said. One of his videos garnered over 700 reposts and more than 1,200 likes.
According to Luo, the construction site of the Attarat Oil Shale Power Plant has been complying with the anti-coronavirus requirements of the local government, while it is also equipped with a clinic and a quarantine area to ensure workers' safety.
