Full text of Chinese FM Wang Yi's exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency on current China-U.S. relations
During an exclusive interview with Xinhua, Wang said the United States has launched a global campaign against a private Chinese company without any solid evidence, calling the move a textbook example of bullying.
Washington has never stopped attempting to sow division between China and its overseas partners with groundless claims, for example by accusing China of setting up "dept traps" in developing countries.
"The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and we should not reject each other. What we should do is to draw on each other's strength to achieve common development," he said.
In response to some U.S. politicians' irresponsible remarks on this issue, Wang said the United States is not qualified to make accusations against other countries' maritime affairs as it has not yet ratified the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. "We urge the U.S. side, instead of trying desperately to stir up trouble for other countries, to focus more on its own affairs." Enditem
