SYDNEY, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Papua New Guinea government gave approval for 175 Chinese workers to return to the South Pacific island country to complete major projects there.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a daily press briefing when commenting on U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's recent announcement of the so-called "Clean Network" program to eliminate some Chinese apps from U.S. app stores.
The move is nothing but a hysterical outburst of hegemonism after these U.S. politicians failed in their attempts to manipulate Hong Kong affairs, the spokesperson said on Sunday.
In recent years, for example, Washington has withdrawn from the Paris Agreement, UNESCO, the UN Human Rights Council, and the Global Compact for Migration.
There have always been forces in the United States attempting to rebut the leadership role of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and China's path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, Wang said during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.

"We do have disputes, like the border disputes with India, and some territorial disputes in the South China Sea," he said, adding that "but on the whole, all the countries in our region want to develop mutually beneficial relations. I don't think any one of them wants to see any escalation of tension. This is also the reality."
Wang expounded on the clear-cut framework for the relationship.
The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and the two countries should not reject each other but draw on each other's strength to achieve common development, according to Wang.
The U.S. government has already turned away members of several foreign delegations, including those from Russia and Iran, to attend the 74th session of the UN General Assembly. It has also restricted the activities of all members of Cuba's permanent mission to the UN.
