QUITO, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- China's willingness to keep the door open to dialogue with the United States to address differences and mitigate tensions between the two powers should be lauded, Ecuador's former Foreign Minister Francisco Carrion has said.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said Friday that China and the United States must never allow a handful of self-serving U.S. politicians to push the bilateral relationship into serious jeopardy.
"Our message is quite clear: We urge the United States to stop acting with arrogance and prejudice, but enter into constructive dialogue with us on an equal footing. We hope that it will work with us to ease current tensions and put the relations back onto the right track of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation," he said.
The move is nothing but a hysterical outburst of hegemonism after these U.S. politicians failed in their attempts to manipulate Hong Kong affairs, the spokesperson said on Sunday.
Responding to the U.S. impulse and anxiety with calm and reason shows China's sense of responsibility, said Eduardo Regalado, a researcher at Cuba's Center for International Policy.
Carrion said he agreed with top Chinese official Yang Jiechi who recently underscored the importance of maintaining respectful and productive bilateral China-U.S. ties.
In the interview, Wang refuted a series of recent U.S. moves hurting bilateral ties, including U.S. closing the Chinese Consulate-General in Houston, launching global campaign against Chinese companies, making fierce attacks on the Communist Party of China and interfering into China's internal affairs.
Carrion said the U.S. inteference would be "in the end unnecessary and useless because the situation in Hong Kong is up to China to resolve, not the United States."
"The signing of a political declaration on 5G security between Slovenian Foreign Minister Logar and U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo does not follow Slovenia's interests. There is even a possibility that signing of this political statement would become legally binding for Slovenia, as a unilateral legal transaction," Brglez said.
Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, was quoted as saying that "three out of four people in the country buying Mac computers were doing so for the first time; two out of three iPad buyers are new to the product."
"Both Fiji and China have rich and diversified cultures. We should and we do respect each other's culture and learn from each other," he said.
