But its efforts to sow discord are likely to fail, noted Maggiorelli, because "the United States no longer has as much power as before, and European, Asian, African and Latin American countries want to cooperate with both countries and maintain peaceful relations."
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The United States should stop making groundless allegations against Chinese companies including TikTok and give them a level playing field, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
Zhao said China has a huge market of 1.4 billion people and a complete industrial support system, and many authoritative international organizations believe that China injects confidence and momentum into the world economic recovery.
The spokesperson reiterated that the Taiwan question is the most important and sensitive issue in China-U.S. relations, and the one-China principle is the political foundation of the bilateral relationship. "The U.S. move is a serious breach of its commitments pledged on the Taiwan question," said Zhao.
The rise in cases has been blamed on the easing of lockdown regulations by authorities and non-compliance of prevention measures. The epidemic has flared up in some communities.
Forty years on, while China and the United States are quite different in social system and many other aspects, such differences have not affected the peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation between the two countries, and they should not affect their bilateral ties in the future, he said.
"Foreign companies, including European ones, were part of the story of China's development, and we believe they will continue to be part of the successful story of China's development and win-win cooperation," he added.
To that end, diplomacy can also rely on international law and organizations such as the United Nations and the World Trade Organization (WTO) to resolve multilateral disputes, he said.
In trade, for example, China has moved to address Washington's concerns, said Castrillon.
"Of course, greater clarity and greater rapprochement on the part of both countries are needed. Therefore, the role of diplomats from both parties will be essential to negotiate solutions to the problems, without ever needing the use of force," said Maggiorelli.
Strengthening the supervision of listed companies' information disclosure and improving auditors' professional ethics and their practices are important means to protect the legitimate rights and interests of investors, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said on its website.
