BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese spokesperson on Monday reiterated that China has no interest and has never interfered in U.S. presidential elections, in response to a top U.S. intelligence official's statement saying China is stepping up efforts to influence the election.
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.
China will continue to pursue development and progress to meet the desire of its people and make new, even greater contributions to mankind, he said.
China will as always welcome European investors and companies from other countries, continue to firmly deepen reform and expand opening up, and provide more cooperation opportunities and development dividends for their operations in China, Wang said.
"We are committed to developing a China-U.S. relationship featuring non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, and firmly safeguard our sovereignty, security and development interests," Zhao said. Enditem
"Countries are already working together to solve the world's problems, but it is normal for there to be different tensions and interests," he said. Enditem
These actions will by far create trade unpredictability and render the domino effect through the introduction of such policy by other members as retaliations, he added.
"These will only lead to its moral decline, damage to its national image and international trust deficit, and are doomed to boomerang," Wang said.
In his message, Xi said he was shocked to learn about the huge explosions in Beirut, which caused heavy casualties.
