Zhao said China has a huge market of 1.4 billion people and a complete industrial support system, and many authoritative international organizations believe that China injects confidence and momentum into the world economic recovery.
BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese spokesperson on Monday reiterated that China has no interest and has never interfered in U.S. presidential elections, in response to a top U.S. intelligence official's statement saying China is stepping up efforts to influence the election.
To that end, diplomacy can also rely on international law and organizations such as the United Nations and the World Trade Organization (WTO) to resolve multilateral disputes, he said.
"People cannot assume other people are doing all these things just because they are exactly doing the same thing in other countries. This is the problem. Some people are doing all these things in other countries. But now they are blaming other countries doing such things. We never do these," he said.
"It's so bad for the U.S. side to decide to close our consulate in Houston. Based on the principle of reciprocity in diplomacy, we have to respond. But we certainly don't want to have all this from the very beginning. We certainly don't want to see any escalation," the Chinese ambassador said. Enditem
Noting China will not allow these people to get their way, Wang stressed that China rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War", because it contravenes the fundamental interests of the Chinese and American peoples and the global trend toward development and progress.
This is a political virus which is understandably questioned and rebuked by people in the United States and the international community, he said.
Maggiorelli said he agreed with the Chinese foreign minister that it was futile for the United States to try and interfere in China's internal affairs, saying it underestimated the strong bond between the Chinese people and the ruling Communist Party of China.
Only when the United States is ready to reduce its arsenal to the size of China's can both sides begin real negotiation, he said, adding, "I hope we could be given a very convincing answer."
Li pointed out that Prime Minister Rajapaksa has been long committed to promoting the friendship between the two countries.
Looking to the future, Maggiorelli highlighted the relevance of Chinese President Xi Jinping's vision of building a community with a shared future for mankind.
