"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.
Practice is the sole criterion of truth, Wang said. "Does China's system work for the country? The Chinese people know better than anyone else."
Noting the current pandemic situation in the Philippines, the Chinese Embassy has been donating cash and medical supplies to Philippine medical institutions to help healthcare workers and frontliners fight the pandemic.
It "will be done within the framework of the concept of building a community with a shared future for humanity," Kashin said.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Embassy in the United States on Friday expressed condolences on the passing of Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft, a two-time U.S. national security advisor and important contributor to China-U.S. relations.
"(China will) stand together with the Philippine government and people to jointly tackle the challenge of the pandemic," the embassy added.
Wei stated China's principled position on questions including the South China Sea, Taiwan and the U.S. stigmatization of China, and urged the U.S. side to stop erroneous words and deeds, improve the management and control of maritime risks, avoid taking dangerous moves that may escalate the situation, and safeguard regional peace and stability.
Moreover, the United States keeps increasing and showing off its military presence in the South China Sea, he said. In the first half of this year alone, it sent military aircraft there more than 2,000 times.
China and the United States must always bear in mind the well-being of mankind, live up to their responsibilities as two major countries, coordinate and cooperate as needed in the UN and other multilateral institutions, and work together for world peace and stability, said Wang. ■
Given its failure to tackle the COVID-19 health crisis, the Trump administration also tried to shift blame on the World Health Organization and pulled the United States out of the UN body.
Their purpose is notably obvious, which is to contain and destabilize China, Wang said.
