According to a press release on the government website on Friday, controller of the National Pandemic Response David Manning said these people are important construction managers and workers of Chinese entrepreneurs engaged in major infrastructures in PNG, including a hydro power station, major provincial airport redevelopments, major highways constructions as well as the construction of the new National and Supreme Court building.
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 a sound and stable China-U.S. relationship affects the well-being of China, the United States and the world at large.
"The United States doesn't even bother to disguise its bullying," he said, adding that it not only violates the international rules of fair trade, but also hurts the free global market environment.
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.
China is ready to make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side, said Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi in a recent interview with Xinhua.
The future of what many consider the world's most important bilateral relationship now hinges upon whether Washington has the much needed rationality and vision to make the right choice.
China has no intention to fight a "diplomatic war" with the United States as it will only hurt the interests of the two peoples even more, Wang said.
Against the backdrop of globalization and the rampant COVID-19 pandemic, this is not the right style and approach to conduct international politics, said Paunov, noting that solidarity and cooperation are more powerful than fighting alone.
As COVID-19 takes its toll on the global economy, China and the United States should stop attempts at decoupling and advance the relationship through cooperation, and live up to their responsibility for the world, said Wang.
"Today we are in the 21st century. Why should we allow history to repeat? Why should we repeat what happened in the last century when we are faced with so many new challenges, global challenges? I don't think a new cold war would serve anybody's interests or will give us any solution to the problem," Cui said, responding to a question on the recent speech on China by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the Nixon Library.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The United States should better understand the realities in Asia and refrain from taking advantage of any disputes in the region or even escalating the situation, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
