The U.S. administration and some U.S. politicians acted out in such an anxious and reckless manner over Hong Kong-related issues to cover up their own botched response to COVID-19, economy and other domestic problems, the spokesperson noted.
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.
"The Chinese people are also very much shocked. They feel very disappointed about what is happening in this country towards China," said Cui. "There's a rising anger among the Chinese public."
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.
China never intends to and will never interfere in U.S. elections or other U.S. internal affairs. Likewise, the United States must abandon its fantasy of remodeling China to U.S. needs. It must stop its meddling in China's internal affairs, and stop its irrational cracking down on China's legitimate rights and interests, he said.
At a time when the future of the world is at stake, China will continue to champion and pursue multilateralism, safeguard the UN-centered international system, and promote multipolarity and greater democracy in international relations, Wang added. Enditem
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.
This is a necessary move opposing the U.S. anti-China forces' flagrant interference in China's internal affairs over a long period of time. It is also a solemn move to safeguard China's national sovereignty, security and development interests.
"We urge the United States to stop acting with arrogance and prejudice, but enter into constructive dialogue with us on an equal footing," Wang said.
Firstly, it should respect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity and stop interfering in China's domestic affairs, just as China respects those of the United States.
The United States should also work with China and the rest of the international community to step up international cooperation, particularly in the ongoing fight against the pandemic, and to support the multilateral system with the United Nations at the center and make it better and more effective, instead of turning against it.
