China is always a firm defender of the international order and the international system. Since the founding of New China more than 70 years ago, the country has never started a war, or occupied an inch of land of others, Wang noted.
He made the remarks in a signed article titled "Respect History, Look to the Future and Firmly Safeguard and Stabilize China-U.S. Relations," which was published Friday.

"We are two different countries, but we have to work together. We have to understand we are living in the same world. We are living in this small global village," Cui said.

On March 2, U.S. President Donald Trump's administration ordered four Chinese media outlets to downsize their staff working in the United States. Starting from March 13, the four outlets were allowed to employ a combined 100 Chinese nationals in the United States, down about 40 percent, meaning 60 or so Chinese journalists had to leave the country.
The current U.S. administration has always vaunted a so-called "America First" policy, claiming to "Make America Great Again." However, when the United States repeatedly abandons multilateralism, withdraws from international responsibilities and obligations, constantly engages in ideological confrontation, and repeatedly blame foreign factors for its domestic failures, the so-called "America First" would only face more opposition and its coveted "greatness" only diminish.

China and the United States are two major countries with different social systems, histories and cultures, and each has its own interests and concerns, which is natural, he noted.
Over the past few decades, he said, Sino-U.S. exchanges have promoted global peace and stability and economic and social development. The cooperation between the two countries at bilateral and multilateral levels has helped solve many global problems. A "new cold war" is not a solution to differences and contradictions. Dialogue is the effective way to solve problems. Enditem
