Wang's view shows that "China intends to continue following the path of strengthening partnership and equal cooperation with all countries that are ready for this," said Vasily Kashin, head of the Department of International Military-Political and Military-Economic Issues of Russia's National Research University -Higher School of Economics.
The United States has recently taken a number of provocative actions in the South China Sea, breaching its longstanding commitment of not taking sides, and blatantly interfering in the territorial disputes, Wang said.
They have also realized their long-term calculation to use Hong Kong for infiltration and subversion activities against the Chinese mainland so as to contain the development of China will come to nothing, the spokesperson added.
Some 100 km away from the TEDA cooperation zone, Egyptian and Chinese engineers and workers have been working tirelessly to advance construction in the central business district near Cairo.
The U.S. side should face reality, be rational, put China-U.S. relations in perspective and handle the relations correctly. Or it will surely face consequences if it refuses to correct its course and insists on taking more wrong steps.
It "will be done within the framework of the concept of building a community with a shared future for humanity," Kashin said.
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.
"This move can be considered as the latest card used by the United States in its fight against China and its technological rise. This is a battle for technological dominance," Altay Atli, a scholar at Istanbul's Bogazici University, told Xinhua.
National security is a nation's top priority and the prerequisite for a country to survive and thrive. The legislation for Hong Kong is aimed at eliminating the loopholes in national security and ensuring Hong Kong's long-term stability and prosperity, which is part of China's internal affairs in which no other country has the right to interfere.

He said the Chinese side rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War", because it contravenes the fundamental interests of the Chinese and American peoples and the global trend toward development and progress.
