Closing such a consulate-general that bears both historical and current significance is closing a window for exchange and mutual understanding between the Chinese and Americans, Wang said.
Wang said that China-U.S. relations are facing the gravest challenge since the establishment of diplomatic ties, and their exchanges and cooperation in many areas are being seriously disrupted.
"We do have disputes, like the border disputes with India, and some territorial disputes in the South China Sea," he said, adding that "but on the whole, all the countries in our region want to develop mutually beneficial relations. I don't think any one of them wants to see any escalation of tension. This is also the reality."
He said the Chinese side rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War", because it contravenes the fundamental interests of the Chinese and American peoples and the global trend toward development and progress.
In pursuing the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, Yang said China has made tremendous achievements, and contributed significantly to safeguarding world peace and stability and promoting common development of all countries.
Of the two generators under construction, one will be delivered by the end of this year, and the other next year, Luo said.
Given its failure to tackle the COVID-19 health crisis, the Trump administration also tried to shift blame on the World Health Organization and pulled the United States out of the UN body.
Behind these vicious lies and cheats are Pompeos and Navarros' selfish political calculations that motivate them to cover up their incompetent and chaotic response to the raging pandemic and shift public opinion for the coming elections. And most importantly, it is the scheme of China hawks to contain China's development and maintain Washington's hegemony.
It is worth noting that a 15-year "long-term vision" is mentioned along with the 14th Five-Year Plan this year, aiming for 2035 when the country's socialist modernization is expected to be basically achieved.
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 United States should honor the principle of sovereign equality enshrined in the UN Charter, learn how to get along with different systems and civilizations and adapt itself to peaceful coexistence, and accept the reality that the world is moving toward multipolarity, said Wang.
