-- China is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side.
Zhao said China had been containing the COVID-19 epidemic in an open, transparent and responsible manner, earnestly implementing its duties and obligations under the International Health Regulations, and actively carrying out international prevention and control cooperation.
In sharp contrast to the United States' approach, more than 70 countries expressed their support for the legislation at a meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council, representing the shared voice of the international community.
It once again proves that some politicians in the United States would resort to all means in their fanatical effort to attack China.
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.
"I don't know why people like the term 'Cold War' so much. The correct lesson we should learn from past history is that such a cold war serves nobody's real interest," said Cui in an online interview with Nicholas Burns, executive director of the Aspen Strategy Group, and Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent of NBC News, while attending the 2020 Aspen Security Forum on Aug. 4.
The director stressed the importance of respecting different cultures of different countries.
Some countries stick to the Cold-War mentality and attempt to readopt the containment policy, noted Compaore, calling on the world to abandon the Cold-War mentality and ideological prejudice, jointly deal with issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, and safeguard world peace and promote human progress together.

Zhao added that with the assistance and authorization of the central government, the HKSAR has actively rendered assistance to Germany in accordance with the Basic Law and within the framework of the extradition agreement, and has also ratified a similar agreement with France.
As a major and responsible country, China is open and above board, and is ready to enter into candid, effective consultation with the U.S. side and make cool-headed and sensible response to the impulsive moves and anxiety of the U.S. side, he noted.
