China committed to sound, stable growth of China-U.S. relations: ambassador
China is committed to the sound and stable growth of China-U.S. ties, though the bilateral relationship is experiencing severe difficulties, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai said on Thursday.
“We have been firmly opposed, all along, to a new ‘Cold War’ or decoupling, and we are committed to the sound and stable growth of China-U.S. relations,” said Cui in his remarks at the virtual reception and concert celebrating the Chinese National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival, both of which fell on Thursday.
“Indeed, the China-U.S. relationship is experiencing severe difficulties rarely seen in the past 41 years of diplomatic ties. Some people attempt to write off the hard-won achievements in China-U.S. relations, stoke up decoupling and incite ideological confrontation and a new ‘Cold War’,” he said.
