BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Starting a "diplomatic war" does not prove the strength of the United States, but exposes its increasing lack of confidence, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday.
Collin Yabaki, director of Fiji's Heritage and Arts Department, told Xinhua on the sideline of the visit to the National Archives of Fiji by Chinese Ambassador Qian Bo that cultural exchange is a bridge and one of the best ways to help the two countries and peoples deepen their mutual understanding and enhance the friendly cooperative ties.
The Chinese Consulate-General in Houston was the first consulate-general opened by China in the United States after the establishment of the diplomatic ties, and it was always an important symbol of China-U.S. friendship, Wang said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
"First, the normalization of relations between our two countries and the growth of this relationship over the decades has served the interests of both countries and the world very well," he said. "It's quite clear that all of us are still enjoying the positive outcome, the benefits of the growth of this relationship. Nobody can really deny this."
He made the remarks in a signed article titled "Respect History, Look to the Future and Firmly Safeguard and Stabilize China-U.S. Relations," which was published Friday.
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.
"We need to take an attitude that is responsible to history and to the people. We need to stand up for what is right and set the record straight," he said. Enditem
Cui made the remark when he attended the 2020 Aspen Security Forum on Aug. 4 and had an online interview with Nicholas Burns, executive director of the Aspen Strategy Group, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent of NBC News, on issues related to China-U.S. relations.
It is regrettable that the disgraceful behaviors have been viewed as a motto by a handful of hardliners in Washington, including Pompeo himself, the incumbent U.S. secretary of state, and White House trade advisor Peter Navarro.
Cooperation is vital for all countries to deal with their common crises, the expert said, emphasizing they should join hands in various fields such as vaccine development and finding solutions to restart the economy.
"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.
