It needs to be stressed again that the Chinese government is determined to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, implement the "one country, two systems" principle, and oppose external interference in Hong Kong affairs.
"China stands ready to continuously work with other countries to safeguard a fair, just, open and non-discriminatory business environment, promote international science and technology exchange and cooperation, and ensure that safe, reliable and high-quality information technology will serve as an emerging driving force for global economic recovery and better life for people around the globe," Wang added.

The Chinese side has proposed that the two countries draw up three lists respectively on cooperation, dialogue and issues that need proper management, and draw up a road-map for future interactions, he added.
BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Minister of National Defense Wei Fenghe on Thursday took a phone call from U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper upon invitation.
"China will not allow these people to get their way," said Wang.
Cooperation is vital for all countries to deal with their common crises, the expert said, emphasizing they should join hands in various fields such as vaccine development and finding solutions to restart the economy.
"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.
"Nonetheless, for some time, some politicians in the United States have kept making false statements and groundless remarks against China. They have viciously attacked the CPC and China's political system. They have deliberately distorted and even attempted to write off the history of China-U.S. relations for the past nearly 50 years," Yang noted.
"The problem is the intensifying U.S. military activities in the region. The U.S. is sending more and more warships, military airplanes more frequently to the region. This is really raising the risks of any conflicts or confrontation," he said. Enditem
As a permanent member of the Security Council, the United States, however, defying mainstream values, has clashed with many nations on issues such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, climate change, and the Iran nuclear deal, among others.
"A new Cold War between the United States and China would be something else entirely. It is difficult to see how it could be fought effectively, not to mention successfully," Coats said.
