Chinese FM calls for cooperation instead of decoupling in China-U.S. ties
HANGZHOU, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- An all-cargo air route linking Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province, and Spain's Madrid was launched Thursday.
"If China were to mimic Trump's gambit -- alleging, without providing evidence, that some U.S. multinationals are potential national-security threats -- it could force them to sell their operations to 'very Chinese' buyers. Although the Chinese government has not yet done so, the risk has become higher now," said Wei, who served as chief economist of Asian Development Bank during 2014-2016.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks at a press briefing when asked to comment on a survey released by the U.S.-China Business Council (USCBC).
Third, reject decoupling and uphold cooperation. The interests of the two countries are deeply entwined. Forced decoupling will inflict a lasting impact on bilateral relations, and endanger the security of international industrial chains and interests of all countries, Wang said.
National security legislation underpins the very survival of any country, and it is a common legal practice of all countries, Wang said.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday that gross interference in Hong Kong affairs undermines "one country, two systems."

A similar executive order has also been issued for WeChat, a messaging and social media app owned by Chinese tech giant Tencent.
