BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- The relationship between China and the United States has arrived at a highly critical juncture after over four decades of generally stable development.
"Our message is quite clear: We urge the United States to stop acting with arrogance and prejudice, but enter into constructive dialogue with us on an equal footing. We hope that it will work with us to ease current tensions and put the relations back onto the right track of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation," he said.
"China's door to dialogue remains open. We are willing, in the spirit of equality and open-mindedness, to talk and interact with the United States, and resume dialogue mechanisms at all levels and in all fields," said Wang.
Pompeo's groundless claims about China have aroused strong condemnation from the Chinese Embassy in the Czech Republic.

He made the remarks after visiting U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed at a joint press briefing here that the United States, a country with a poor track record of respecting other nations' sovereignty, stood "prepared to support" the Czech people if the latter were bullied by others.
In response to some U.S. politicians' irresponsible remarks on this issue, Wang said the United States is not qualified to make accusations against other countries' maritime affairs as it has not yet ratified the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. "We urge the U.S. side, instead of trying desperately to stir up trouble for other countries, to focus more on its own affairs." Enditem
LONDON, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- The extent to which the U.S. tech sector has become dependent on China is "under-appreciated", said an opinion article recently published by the London-based Financial Times newspaper.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said on Friday that what has happened shows that no obstacle is insurmountable for China and the United States, and the key lies in a true commitment to mutual respect, equality and seeking common ground while shelving differences.
He said the Chinese side is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side and make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side.
"If you talk about anything universal, you have to consider China itself has 20 percent of the global population. If you count in countries like India, African and Latin American countries, the majority of the global population is very often not included in the so-called universality (that is often referred to in this country)," he said.
