All the excuses for closure claimed by the U.S. side are nothing but fabrications designed to slander China, and none of the excuses is backed by any evidence or can stand up to scrutiny, Wang said.
In the meantime, there are new risks and challenges in the implementation of "one country, two systems," the most prominent of which is heightened national security risk, Zhao added.
"What they are up to is to stitch up lies to blind the American people and fool international public opinion," he added.
The Philippines' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved the Chinese drug Lianhua Qingwen to enter the Philippine market.
The port has set up an exclusive window for the freight train services, which increased the efficiency of customs clearance by more than 60 percent.
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.
BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi said Friday that China and the United States must never allow a handful of self-serving U.S. politicians to push the bilateral relationship into serious jeopardy.
It is worth noting that a 15-year "long-term vision" is mentioned along with the 14th Five-Year Plan this year, aiming for 2035 when the country's socialist modernization is expected to be basically achieved.
"Maintaining and developing a healthy and stable China-U.S. relationship is in the interests of both the two countries and peoples and the international community," it said.
Noting that the problems brought by globalization and free trade should be dealt with through internal reform, Wang said that acting like a sick person who forces others to take medicine for his own illness or even resorting to decoupling will not work.
And though in the face of Washington's provocation Beijing has always kept maximum restraint, that does not mean that the country will bow to bullying. Indeed, China has every right to make a legitimate and firm response to defend its national interests.
