"I fully agree and support Wang's opposition to (U.S. Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo's assertion that the policy of engagement with China pursued by successive U.S. administrations has failed, and his call for advancing the relationship through cooperation," Sylwester Szafarz, former consul general of Poland in the Chinese city of Shanghai, told Xinhua.
China has a huge presence in the U.S. market as well as investment, as does the United States in China, which proves there are "very deep trade ties" between the two, he noted.
In order to navigate the China-U.S. relationship through such uncharted and turbulent waters, it is important for the two sides to set straight misinterpretations from Washington's China hawks about the history of the exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.
Therefore, the Chinese side has decided to suspend the HKSAR's SFO agreement with Germany and shelve the one with France, Zhao said. Enditem
"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.

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 pursuing the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, Yang said China has made tremendous achievements, and contributed significantly to safeguarding world peace and stability and promoting common development of all countries.
Over the past few months, a handful of hardliners in Washington have launched a China-smearing campaign over the coronavirus pandemic and human rights in Xinjiang, meddled in China's internal affairs concerning Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China Sea, cracked down on Chinese tech firms, and deliberately stirred up an ideological confrontation with Beijing. Most recently, Washington abruptly ordered the closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, an unjustified and reckless political provocation.
BRUSSELS, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Mission to the European Union (EU) said Monday that China is firmly opposed to the EU's interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs and practising double standards on the law-based exercise of duties by Hong Kong police.
"We hope that the United States will give up its obsession with its narrow self-interest, and return to the right track of openness and cooperation," Wang said. Enditem
After the national security legislation for Hong Kong was introduced this year, some U.S. politicians became more aggressive, passing the so-called "Hong Kong Autonomy Act" to malign the law, flagrantly interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's domestic affairs, and severely damaging the trust between the two countries.
