Re Some say that China-US relations will not be able to return to its past. But that should not mean ignoring the history altogether and starting all over again, let alone impractical decoupling. It should mean building on past achievements and keeping pace with the times.
Re In the past 40 years and more since the establishment of diplomatic relations, the interests of China and the US have become highly integrated. China and the US have jointly accomplished many great things to the benefit of not only the two countries but also the world.
China and the US were allies who fought side by side during WWII. In the 1970s, the two sides reopened the door toward establishing diplomatic ties on the basis of respecting the different systems of each other.
Re China has every right to uphold its sovereignty, security and development interests, safeguard the achievements that the Chinese people have made through hard work, and reject any bullying and injustice imposed on it.
Re While the US unscrupulously encircles and smears China around the world, and meddles in China’s domestic affairs, it should not demand unrealistically that China show understanding and support to the US in bilateral and global affairs.
Re China has maintained a highly stable and consistent policy toward the US. China and the US must work in the same direction, respect international law and international rules, and engage in equal dialogue and consultation.
China never intends to challenge or replace the US, or have full confrontation with the US. What we care most about is to improve the livelihood of our people. And what we hope for most is to maintain peace and stability of the world.
Re China and the US, despite their different social systems, have much to offer each other and could well co-exist peacefully.
Re China has learned a lot of useful experience from developed countries. Likewise, some of China’s successful experiences have also been quite relevant for some countries in tackling their current challenges.
Re The American people have long pursued equality, inclusiveness and diversity. The world should not be viewed in binary thinking, and differences in systems should not lead to a zero-sum game. China will not, and cannot, be another US.
Re China does not replicate any model of other countries, nor does it export its own to others.
One particular view has been floating around in recent years, alleging that the success of China’s path will be a blow and threat to the Western system and path. This claim is inconsistent with facts, and we do not agree with it.
Re After all, it should be the people of the country concerned to adjudicate whether their country’s choice of system and path is right or not.
Every country takes its development path on the basis of its cultural and historic traditions. China’s path has been the way out of poverty and backwardness for the 1.4 billion Chinese people. No one has the right to rebuff.
The world No.1 hacking state spares no efforts in accusing China of cyber theft, even saying that fun social-networking apps popular with youngsters have been weaponized. How come the only superpower in the world is so emotionally fragile and lacks self-confidence?
Re China and Russia will continue to firmly support each other and deepen strategic communication and coordination to maintain global strategic stability and security.
Re Russia firmly supports China’s efforts to safeguard national security in #HKSAR and believes that China is fully capable of maintaining long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong.
President Xi Jinping spoke with President Vladimir Putin over the phone today. We congratulate Russia on the approval of constitutional amendments with an overwhelming majority in a smooth nationwide vote.
