WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The differences between the United States and China "should be seen as opportunities, possibilities for mutual learning, for cooperation," Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
As COVID-19 takes its toll on the global economy, China and the United States should stop attempts at decoupling and advance the relationship through cooperation, and live up to their responsibility for the world, said Wang.
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.
However, he acknowledged that the current political climate in the United States might make that difficult as the November presidential elections draw near.
The United States should genuinely eliminate the prejudice and hatred some of its political forces harbor, abandon the Cold War mentality and zero-sum game mindset, respect Hong Kong affairs as China's internal affairs, and stop using HKSAR as a ground for secession, subversion, infiltration and sabotage against China.
