BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Foreign political party leaders have sent messages to the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, opposing the plot of some U.S. politicians who fabricated accusations to smear China and escalated provocations against China to contain its development.
Such moves naturally gain little support, said Wang.
"The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and we should not reject each other. What we should do is to draw on each other's strength to achieve common development," he said.
SYDNEY, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Papua New Guinea government gave approval for 175 Chinese workers to return to the South Pacific island country to complete major projects there.
Given its failure to tackle the COVID-19 health crisis, the Trump administration also tried to shift blame on the World Health Organization and pulled the United States out of the UN body.
And though in the face of Washington's provocation Beijing has always kept maximum restraint, that does not mean that the country will bow to bullying. Indeed, China has every right to make a legitimate and firm response to defend its national interests.
In response, the Chinese mission said "Hong Kong is a region based on the rule of law," stressing that "the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has clear provisions on respect for and protection of human rights, and protection of rights and freedoms including freedom of speech and the press."
On May 4, 2018, the United States moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem after Washington broke with decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital in 2017, triggering intense international criticism, including from the UN.
In international relations today, dialogue is the right way for settling issues and building trust, Wang said, adding that favoring dialogue over confrontation is not only China's position but also the consensus of the overwhelming majority of countries.
The brazen practice of these American politicians has fully showcased the U.S.-style hypocrisy and bullying, revealing the ugly face of modern hegemonists, said the spokesperson.
He noted that at a recent UNHRC session, 70 countries supported China's formulation of the law and condemned interference in China's internal affairs by using Hong Kong as a cover.
