Over the past few decades, he said, Sino-U.S. exchanges have promoted global peace and stability and economic and social development.

"We are not interested in rivalry of systems, or ideological confrontation with any country," Wang added. "Likewise, we hope that the United States will respect China's social system and the Chinese people's choice, and give up its failed interventionism." Enditem

When responding to a query about whether the moves are countermeasures against earlier announcements by the two countries to suspend relevant extradition agreements with Hong Kong, Zhao said Germany's unilateral announcement of suspending the agreement and France's halt of the ratification of the agreement have politicized judicial cooperation with Hong Kong, interfered in China's internal affairs and violated international laws and basic norms governing international relations. "China is firmly opposed to such practices," said Zhao.
On the occasion, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing said the Chinese government attached great importance to the cooperation between China and Pakistan to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
