"Maintaining and developing a healthy and stable China-U.S. relationship is in the interests of both the two countries and peoples and the international community," it said.
Wang said both countries have benefited much from the cooperation, and no one is being taken advantage of or being ripped off, as the mutually beneficial cooperation over the years has turned China and the United States into a community with shared interests.
PNG recorded its highest daily increase of COVID-19 infections on Wednesday with 55 new cases, taking the country's official total to 269, with 191 currently active.
President Xi Jinping had called for building a community with a shared future for mankind. Wang said the aim of this major initiative is to rise above differences in system, abandon the zero-sum mentality, and find a common goal for all countries, nationalities and civilizations.

Figures from the World Bank's Doing Business 2020 report show that China has made greater progress in the 2005-2020 period than any other large economy in terms of facilitating the ease of doing business. Moreover, China's Ministry of Commerce is amending a regulation on foreign strategic investments in Chinese listed firms to ease thresholds and restrictions on foreigners buying equity stakes.
All the excuses for closure claimed by the U.S. side are nothing but fabrications designed to slander China, and none of the excuses is backed by any evidence or can stand up to scrutiny, Wang said.
Whenever it seeks to contain China's increasing tech influence or defend the U.S. industry from competition, the present U.S. administration has cited national security concerns without concrete evidence, unscrupulously putting any competitor or challenger into the crosshairs for punishment like a fine, ban or sanction.
