Chinese Foreign Minister demands that the US stop hindering bilateral ties

china-eeuu-e1667219763583China today demanded that the United States stop the harassment and not raise more barriers to bilateral ties, after stressing that their stable development benefits the common interests and those of the international community.

According to an official statement, Foreign Minister Wang Yi made these remarks during a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

The foreign minister criticized Washington for clinging to ideological prejudices and trying to curb Chinese investment with its new controls on the export and trade of machinery and semiconductors for supercomputers and artificial intelligence from the Asian country.

He denounced that these are violations of free trade norms and urged to correct them because they harm both the interests and the legitimate rights of Beijing.

Wang also called on the White House to pay attention to the report of the recent Congress of the Communist Party (CPC) of China, as it contains the future aspirations of the country in multiple aspects and defines the path to follow to achieve them.

“If the United States really wants to understand China, please study the CCP’s 20th Congress report carefully. China’s domestic and foreign policies are open and transparent, its strategies are transparent,” he noted.

Blinken, for his part, indicated that the world expects more cooperation between the world’s two main powers and expressed Washington’s willingness to maintain communication on the future of relations, the official note said.

The sides also discussed the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and Wang called for calm, more diplomatic efforts and peaceful negotiations.

Wang Yi stressed that all parties to the conflict “must exercise restraint, make a calm decision and intensify diplomatic efforts to prevent the situation from further escalating or even getting out of control.”

The Chinese foreign secretary also pointed out that “putting Sino-US relations back on the path of stable development” is in the interests of both countries and the international community.

Last July, the two heads of diplomacy spoke in the context of the G20 Summit held in Bali, Indonesia, and thus gave continuity to other high-level contacts held by representatives of both countries.

During that meeting, they agreed to promote intergovernmental consultations and also collaborate in areas such as public health and confronting climate change.

But the exchanges are not prospering amid renewed friction over issues such as visits by US politicians to Taiwan, economic-commercial restrictions and charges against Chinese citizens accused of harassing compatriots on US soil.
