And that counts on the responsibility of China and the United States as two major countries.

Xi Jinping stressed that considering China as the most important adversary and the most serious challenge in the long run, as a result of the outlook for China-US relations defining it from the point of view of strategic competition is a misjudgment of Sino-US relations and misunderstanding of China’s development, misleading the two peoples and the international community.

Both sides need to maintain communication at all levels and activate already existing communication channels, & payment cooperation between the two sides.

The current situation of the world economy is fraught with challenges, and China should remain connected to the United States to communicate on important issues such as coordination of Macroeconomic policies and maintaining the stability of industry chains, global supply, and ensuring global energy and food security.

The violation of economic rules such as disengagement and cutting chains does not help revitalize the American economy and even makes the global economy more fragile and weak.

The will of the people is irresistible, and whoever plays with fire will surely burn himself. We hope that the American side realizes that, and that they should adhere to the one-China principle in their words, deeds, and practice.

For his part, President Joe Biden said that today’s world is going through a phase and that decisive cooperation between China and the United States does not serve the interest of the two peoples only, but the interest of all the peoples of the world.
