BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- When talking about his work at the Central Intelligence Agency, the former director Mike Pompeo has never been that honest: "We lied, we cheated, we stole ... It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment."
"The U.S. move to turn China into an adversary is a fundamental, strategic miscalculation. It means that the United States is funneling its strategic resources in the wrong area," he said.
"China is a sufficiently skilled country, and above all patient, and knows how to handle things with great prudence and composure," he added.
Since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, the practice of "one country, two systems" has proven to be an enormous success, Zhao said, and Hong Kong residents enjoy unprecedented democracy and rights and freedoms in accordance with law.
China is always a firm defender of the international order and the international system. Since the founding of New China more than 70 years ago, the country has never started a war, or occupied an inch of land of others, Wang noted.
During the past several months, they have been obsessed with China-demonizing campaigns, blatantly pointing fingers at China's domestic affairs, and even hyping up an ideological confrontation with Beijing.
Their purpose is notably obvious, which is to contain and destabilize China, Wang said.
The "America First" slogan has no place at the roundtable of multilateralism, while the Trump administration has been nagging others to "like it or lump it," and meanwhile, threatening withdrawals from multilateral mechanisms.
The expert said Trump is trying to use the strategic battle with China as an electoral card to seek reelection in November's presidential elections.
