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 U.S. move to turn China into an adversary is a fundamental, strategic miscalculation. It means that the United States is funneling its strategic resources in the wrong area," he said.
"These will only lead to its moral decline, damage to its national image and international trust deficit, and are doomed to boomerang," Wang said.
Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi has recently affirmed that China rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War," said Professor David Castrillon of Externado University in Colombia's capital Bogota.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- China will as always welcome companies from other countries to invest and operate in China, a foreign ministry spokesperson said Wednesday.
With the help of advanced Chinese equipment and 50,000 diagnostics kits, so far the new lab has tested some 28,000 samples. Approximately 20 percent of them were positive, Mahdi said.
Only when the United States is ready to reduce its arsenal to the size of China's can both sides begin real negotiation, he said, adding, "I hope we could be given a very convincing answer."
The supplies, including two monitoring ambulances, four ventilators and 200 infrared frontal thermometers, were donated by Kunming to the Laotian capital Vientiane and the province of Luang Prabang, with a view to assisting in the battle against COVID-19.
The remarks were made by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian while responding to a query about Azar's visit at a press briefing held in Beijing.
China and ASEAN countries, including the Philippines, are currently focusing on the fight against COVID-19 and resuming economic activities, which call for solidarity, coordination, peace and stability, Wang said.
Mahdi recalled that the most difficult time was a continuous shift of three days in the lab and his fear of passing the infection to his family.
