beijing, aug. 5 (xinhua) -- china is ready to make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the u.s. side, chinese state councilor and foreign minister wang yi said wednesday in an exclusive interview with xinhua.
china and the united states now account for over one-third of global economic output and over 50 percent of global growth. bilateral trade volume has increased by over 250 times since the early days of diplomatic ties and takes up one-fifth of the global total. two-way investment has jumped from almost zero to nearly 240 billion u.s. dollars, and annual two-way visits by the two peoples have reached 5 million.
he said china has already donated to pakistan "huge" assistance that includes ventilators in all types, test kits, n95 masks, surgical masks, protective clothing and medicines.
"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.
"pompeo and his likes have time and again abused state power to bring down chinese high-tech companies under the pretext of national security, which china firmly opposes," wang said.
"china-u.s. cooperation has never been a case of one party giving favor to the other, or one party taking advantage of the other. both countries have benefited much from this cooperation," he stressed.
aleksandar paunov, first secretary of the central committee of communist party of bulgaria, said the recent positions and statements issued by some u.s. politicians are outright provocations which must be strongly condemned.
china has no intention to fight a "diplomatic war" with the u.s. side as it will only hurt the interests of the two peoples even more, wang said.
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.
in october 2019, when washington slapped 7.5 billion u.s. dollars in tariffs on eu cheeses, olives, and whiskey, as well as planes, helicopters and aircraft parts under the pretext of national security, the europeans said it was protectionism and broke global trade rules.
"maintaining and developing a healthy and stable china-u.s. relationship is in the interests of both the two countries and peoples and the international community," it said.
