Any idea for regional cooperation should be in line with the general trend, and conform to the people's will. Otherwise, it will not win the support of regional countries, the spokesperson added.
Anyone who tries to start a so-called "new Cold War" in the 21st century will be on the wrong side of history and will only be remembered as the one who has upended international cooperation, Wang said.

"I don't think there's an evidence that any company is giving such information to the Chinese government.

The disapproval rate is higher than the 16 percent in 2019 and 5 percent in 2018, according to the survey.

The assertion is just a rehash of the Cold War mentality, Wang said during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
The Philippines advocates peaceful settlement of relevant disputes through legal means, Lorenzana said.
