WASHINGTON, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Embassy in the United States on Friday expressed condolences on the passing of Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft, a two-time U.S. national security advisor and important contributor to China-U.S. relations.
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.
The two sides, he said, should explore ways to resume exchanges at all levels in an orderly manner, establish bilateral and regional "fast lanes" and bolster cooperation in "green lanes," so as to help the two countries resume work and production and ensure the stable operation of industrial and supply chains.

It must be pointed out that U.S. accusations against the national security law for Hong Kong go against facts, and have legal and logical fallacies.
The two countries are unlikely to have greater confrontation since "for purely economic reasons, it is not convenient for them to enter into a dangerous escalation," said Carrion.
"General Scowcroft was an accomplished statesman and diplomat and an old friend of the Chinese people. He made important contributions to the China-U.S. relationship, and supported and promoted its growth throughout his career," said the embassy in a statement.
