At today’s (9th) regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a reporter asked that U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo said in an interview that the sanctions imposed by the United States against China are irrevocable and based on the consensus of both parties. What are the spokesman’s comments?
In response, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Li insisted that China and the United States have different historical culture, social systems and development paths, but the two sides have broad common interests and broad space for cooperation.
The fundamental reason why Sino-US relations have shown the most severe situation since the establishment of diplomatic relations is that some people in the United States adhere to the old Cold War thinking and ideological prejudices, and view China and Sino-US relations from the perspective of zero-sum games.
Maintaining the healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations is a matter of the fate and well-being of the people of the two countries and the world.
Zhao Lijian said that the future of Sino-US relations depends on the United States’ correct choice and depends on the joint efforts of both sides. It is imperative that the two sides should work together to eliminate all kinds of interference and resistance to achieve a smooth transition of Sino-US relations.
At the same time, in the direction of meeting the common interests of the two countries and peoples, they should strive to restart dialogue, get back on track and rebuild mutual trust in the next stage of Sino-US relations.
