BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Instigation for confrontation and division was not rare in history, but was all rebuked by the people, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on Wednesday.
HONG KONG, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Strained China-U.S. relations were dealt another blow as the U.S. Treasury Department announced the so-called sanctions against heads of Chinese government agencies responsible for Hong Kong affairs and officials of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
The port has set up an exclusive window for the freight train services, which increased the efficiency of customs clearance by more than 60 percent.
While the two countries are quite different in social system and many other aspects, such differences have not affected bilateral peaceful coexistence and cooperation, said Wang.
During an exclusive interview with Xinhua, Wang said the United States has launched a global campaign against a private Chinese company without any solid evidence, calling the move a textbook example of bullying.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The differences between the United States and China "should be seen as opportunities, possibilities for mutual learning, for cooperation," Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.

"With all due respect, I very often hear people in this country say this is something universal. But when they say universal, it's mainly the United States and a couple of European countries," said the ambassador, responding to another question about "an almost universally held criticism of China (on Xinjiang)."
The U.S. practice has no factual basis at all and is sheer malicious slander and political manipulation in an attempt to maintain its high-tech monopoly, he said. "This is a typical hegemonic behavior that runs against market principles and international trade rules and severely threatens the security of global industrial and supply chains."
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
National security legislation is also a common legal practice globally. Western countries including the United States and Britain have passed numerous laws in the field and have a large number of cases derived from judicial practices.
