China rejects US’s perception of so-called ‘China threat’

BEIJING, December 21 (INP): A spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Wang Wenbin once again rejected the US’s perception of so-called ‘China threat’.

There are some facts needed to know about the so-called “China threat” alleged by Mr. Pompeo, US Secretary of State.

First, in the 240-plus years since the founding of the United States, only 16 years have passed without a war.
By contrast, China has not waged a single war since the founding of the new China. Second, the United States has been wantonly bullying other countries and willfully interfering in their internal affairs.

China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs and opposed unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction.

Third, the United States is engaged in massive surveillance such as PRISM, while China has never had such record.

Fourth, the United States has yet to unconditionally commit itself not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear-weapon states or nuclear-weapon-free zones, while China is the only nuclear-weapon state that has made such a commitment.

” It was noticed that a recent poll in the United States shows that the majority of the American people support China-U.S. cooperation rather than confrontation.

Once again, we urge relevant people on the U.S. side to get rid of the illusion of the so-called “China threat theory”, listen to the rational voice of the American people, recognize the trend of the times, and do more practical things that are beneficial to China, the United States and the world” he added.

At the outside, Wang Wenbin said, Pompeo’s remarks have no factual basis and are fraught with arrogance and prejudice.

Happiness is achieved through hard work, this is a simple truth to every Chinese. China has grown from a poor country to the world’s second-largest economy, as a result of the hard work of all Chinese people.

We are committed to conducting friendly cooperation with other countries on the basis of equality and mutual benefit, but never count on others’ alms-giving or charity to prosper, still less take pride in lying, cheating and stealing as someone does.

The world is diverse, where democracy and the rule of law should be upheld. Exchanges between countries shall abide by the UN Charter and other basic norms of international relations, rather than follow the standards of a certain country.

The relevant person on the U.S. side asked other countries to act in the way as it demanded. Such practice of dictating to other countries in a bossy manner stands in sharp contrast to the so-called democracy and freedom as often professed by him.
