BEIJING, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian on Wednesday said China firmly opposed any official interactions between the United States and Taiwan under any pretext.
China is committed to developing a China-U.S. relationship featuring non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, Yang said. "Dialogue and cooperation between China and the United States does not just benefit one side, nor is it a favor granted by one side to the other. It features equality and mutual benefit." Enditem
Third, reject decoupling and uphold cooperation. The interests of the two countries are deeply entwined. Forced decoupling will inflict a lasting impact on bilateral relations, and endanger the security of international industrial chains and interests of all countries, Wang said.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The United States is not qualified to build a coalition of "clean countries" because the country itself is dirty all over, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday.
However, he acknowledged that the current political climate in the United States might make that difficult as the November presidential elections draw near.
Zhao said the comments came as no surprise, "because we know certain individuals in the United States have their own 'definition' of truth: as long as a lie serves to attack and smear China, it is a fact."
"When we say mutual respect, this includes the respect of our culture and history. As developing countries, both China and Fiji share a lot in terms of long history, very old culture and seeking common development. We can learn from each other and we can help each other including cooperation in the field of archives," he said.
-- China is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side.
China firmly opposes the blatant act of bullying and will continue to facilitate greater opening-up. With its predicable and coherent policies, China will provide more opportunities through high-quality development for businesses seeking an open, fair, just and non-discriminatory environment.

Practice is the sole criterion of truth, Wang said. "Does China's system work for the country? The Chinese people know better than anyone else."
Amid the impact of COVID-19, trade between China and some Arab countries still registered growth.
