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.
As a matter of fact, U.S. allies, including Canada and European countries, have become jittery over the recent U.S. protectionism.
However, the U.S. government is sticking to the wrong path. By wantonly breaching the privacy of government officials targeted by the "sanctions," the United States has gone against its own stance on democracy, freedom and respect for human rights.
"The development of China and of the United States is not a zero sum game, and we should not reject each other. What we should do is to draw on each other's strength to achieve common development," he said.
Responding to the U.S. impulse and anxiety with calm and reason shows China's sense of responsibility, said Eduardo Regalado, a researcher at Cuba's Center for International Policy.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The South China Sea is the shared home for the countries in the region and should not be a wrestling ground for international politics, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
According to Zhao, more than 60 countries and regions have postponed national or local elections due to COVID-19. For example, Britain announced in March that local elections in places like England originally scheduled in May would be postponed to May 2021.
"The root cause is that some American politicians who are biased against and hostile to China are using their power to smear China with fabrications and impede normal ties with China under various pretexts," said Wang, pointing out that such American politicians ultimately want to drag China and the United States into renewed conflict and confrontation and plunge the world into chaos and division again.
The NDMA chairman said China not only helped Pakistan battle the pandemic, but also assisted the country in fighting the locust swarms by providing pesticide and related equipment.
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.
Thinking back on the past few years, I can recall that the U.S. government has continuously escalated its suppression of Chinese media, from forced registration as a "foreign agent" to management as a "foreign mission"; from refusing to issue visas for more than 20 Chinese journalists to banishing Chinese reporters from the United States.
