BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- China is ready to make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
China and the United States now account for over one-third of global economic output and over 50 percent of global growth. Bilateral trade volume has increased by over 250 times since the early days of diplomatic ties and takes up one-fifth of the global total. Two-way investment has jumped from almost zero to nearly 240 billion U.S. dollars, and annual two-way visits by the two peoples have reached 5 million.
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.
"It is the epitome of double standards that the Five Eyes chose to interpret the HKSAR government's decision in a twisted political way," Zhao said.
Wang expounded on the clear-cut framework for the relationship.
"It is neither necessary nor possible for the two sides to change each other. Instead, we should respect the choice independently made by the people of the other side," he said.
The TEDA cooperation zone was officially launched in 2008 with an aim to build a new city out of desert.
However, in face of the U.S. abuse of power, the UN has tried to communicate, but rarely succeeded in persuading Uncle Sam to change its problematic policies.
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.
