Mahdi said the lab has facilitated the Iraqi campaign to fight against COVID-19, especially in the first few weeks of the viral outbreak in Iraq.
At the same time, China continued to actively promote foreign economic and trade cooperation, which effectively boosted the total world demand and promoted the development of international trade, Zhao said, adding that foreign-funded projects with an investment of more than 100 million U.S. dollars increased to 320 in the first half of the year.
"The U.S. has frequently abused state power to wantonly suppress non-American firms under the pretext of national security. This is blatant bullying behavior, which China firmly opposes," the spokesperson said, noting relevant U.S. moves have drawn criticism and doubts from many people within the United States and the international community.
BEIJING, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's top securities regulator said Saturday that resolving issues of common concern through dialogue is the only way to achieve win-win results, when responding to a recent U.S. report released by the President's Working Group on Financial Markets.
"China has shown its interest in cooperating with other countries in the development of a vaccine against the new coronavirus, even announcing that it will make its vaccines a public good with universal access," he said.
"I decided to return to my work three days after my father's death," she said. "I want to work diligently and help others, so they will not experience a tragedy like mine." She burst into tears.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, over 12,719 tonnes of supplies have been shipped from Xi'an via the train service, thus bolstering international cooperation on epidemic prevention.
Unfortunately, seven members of the lab staff have been infected by COVID-19, Mahdi said, "but fortunately they all returned to work after recovery."
Second, keep the channels open for candid dialogue. Dialogue is the prerequisite for addressing problems, and without dialogue, problems will only pile up and even get out of control, he said.
But its efforts to sow discord are likely to fail, noted Maggiorelli, because "the United States no longer has as much power as before, and European, Asian, African and Latin American countries want to cooperate with both countries and maintain peaceful relations."
