China criticizes US commitment to distorting its political system
Beijing, May 22 (Prensa Latina) China criticized a new report issued by the United States that distorts its political system and strategic plans to use them as an excuse for increasing pressure, and warned Washington that no force will be able to prevent its growth.
Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said at a press conference that in recent years the White House has increased its Cold War practices for ideological reasons, but history and reality show that China is on the right track.
The spokesman said that cooperation and mutual respect and equitable treatment are the best option in the Beijing-Washington relations, while differences are resolved through dialogue.
However, he emphasized the permanent defense of the interests of development, security and national sovereignty, after exhorting the White House to act rationally, contribute to forging closer ties and stop meddling in China's internal affairs.
On the last point, Zhao rejected the threats of US President Donald Trump, following the presentation to the People's National Assembly of a document with proposals to strengthen national security in Hong Kong.
The Chinese spokesman said that no country will allow activities in its territory that lead to secessionism and threaten its security, and that the Chinese government is determined to protect its sovereignty, development interests and the implementation of the 'One country, two systems policy', defending the document and ratifying zero tolerance to external interference.
