As a result, the relationship between the world's top two economies now faces what Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi recently described as the most serious challenge since the two sides forged diplomatic ties 40 years ago.
"The root cause is that some American politicians who are biased against and hostile to China are using their power to smear China with fabrications and impede normal ties with China under various pretexts," said Wang, pointing out that such American politicians ultimately want to drag China and the United States into renewed conflict and confrontation and plunge the world into chaos and division again.
China firmly opposes the blatant act of bullying and will continue to facilitate greater opening-up. With its predicable and coherent policies, China will provide more opportunities through high-quality development for businesses seeking an open, fair, just and non-discriminatory environment.

The cooperation between the two countries has never been a case of one party giving favor to the other, or one party taking advantage of the other, said Wang.
"It is neither necessary nor possible for the two sides to change each other. Instead, we should respect the choice independently made by the people of the other side," he said.
China is committed to developing a China-U.S. relationship featuring non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, Yang said. "Dialogue and cooperation between China and the United States does not just benefit one side, nor is it a favor granted by one side to the other. It features equality and mutual benefit." Enditem

"After establishment of diplomatic ties, and thanks to concerted efforts on both sides, China-U.S. relations have made historic progress despite ups and downs along the way," he said.
