Beijing: Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai in America has said in an interview, ‘America has to be ready to live with countries with different political systems’. During the interview, Cui also discussed the Chinese-American relationship, Kovid 19, as well as the People’s Republic of China law for national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
He said, ‘We certainly have this legal right like all the countries of the world to make our country a modern, strong and prosperous country’.
Cui said, ‘I believe the basic questions are very simple for America. Is America ready or wants to live with another country with very different culture, very different political system and very different economic system? Is America willing to cooperate with peace on many and still growing global challenges? I think this is the real election. This is the basic election, which people will have to do.
When asked if China was maintaining transparency on Kovid 19, Cui replied that the virus is linked to a discovery process and learning, and that global cooperation is needed. He said that China first reported to the World Health Organization (WHO), which was given much earlier on January 3, and the Chinese CDC and the American CDC discussed the new virus on the next day i.e. January 4.
On the concerns related to the law for national security in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), Cui said, the law will protect the principle of ‘one country two system’ and help in the process of doing business in that area. Cui further explained that the goal of bringing the law was clear, those people who kept away from certain activities, there is no need to worry.
This statement has come when US President Donald Trump has recently emphasized again that the corona epidemic has spread around the world due to China.
Relations between the United States and China have declined in recent months and have reached the lowest rung in decades and there are many reasons for increased tensions, due to the global epidemic of corona virus and China’s huge trade surplus. Ranging from suppressing opposition by China supporters in Hong Kong, increasing military strength in the South China Ocean, and Chinese mistreatment of minority Muslims.
