Washington, August 19 (Xinhua) Cui Tiankai, Chinese ambassador to the United States, said recently that all sectors of society in China and the United States should be highly vigilant against any sinister attempt to push Sino US relations into confrontation with conflicts, resolutely prevent the resurgence of “McCarthyism”, actively expand exchanges and cooperation, and promote Sino US relations to return to the right track as soon as possible. Cui Tiankai held a video exchange and delivered a keynote speech on Sino US relations at the Brookings Institution, a us think tank, on 13 March. He said that at present, Sino US relations are developing in the wrong direction, and some people describe it as “free fall”. There have always been problems and difficulties in the relations between the two countries. However, it is alarming that some people try to deny the achievements made by generations of the two countries through decades of hard work, and deliberately push the two sides to confrontation and conflict. Cui Tiankai said that some people in the United States are keen on big country competition and strategic confrontation. The world has changed. It is true that there will be differences and even competition between big powers, but this is not the reason for confrontation. Today, the power to promote cooperation among major powers is far greater than that to promote division. Stigmatization will not make anyone great. The ideological Crusade cannot solve any problems in the world today and is doomed to failure. Cui Tiankai pointed out that the fundamental problem in the current Sino US relations is: can the United States accommodate China and coexist peacefully with a country with different history, culture and system under the condition of deep integration of China and the existing international order? From the beginning of the normalization process of Sino US relations to the establishment of diplomatic relations, both sides have made a choice, that is, the two countries must coexist peacefully, evolve together, control differences, expand cooperation, and develop comprehensive, stable and constructive relations. It is hoped that no one will deny history, leading to the slide of bilateral relations along a dangerous road. Cui Tiankai also said that China has always been an active participant, supporter and contributor of the international system. At the same time, as a big country with ancient civilization, China’s integration into the international system will inevitably bring about some changes, and the international system should also be adjusted accordingly. It’s as natural and reasonable as a chemical reaction. However, China has no intention of “revolutionizing” the existing international system or creating a new system of its own, but hopes to actively promote the corresponding reform according to the changes of the situation while integrating and adapting. He said that the construction of a “post epidemic world” provides a rare opportunity for Sino US cooperation. In the face of important tasks and severe challenges, China and the United States should make the right choice. On the basis of mutual understanding and respect, China and the United States should not only play a positive role in building a new global governance system and international order in a “post epidemic world”, but also develop more stable, forward-looking and stronger Sino US relations. Cui Tiankai stressed that China did not wait for the results of the U.S. general election in November, let alone waste time in the process. It is far from China’s ability to predict or influence the internal affairs of the United States. China has neither the desire nor the interest to get involved. Today, we are still ready to work with the current U.S. government to find solutions to the problem. We also hope that some people in the United States can get rid of fear and paranoia as soon as possible, because this is making them lose their common sense, even to an alarming degree. Cui Tiankai said that China, as always, is committed to working with the United States to overcome difficulties, face the future, and build Sino US relations with the keynote of coordination, cooperation and stability. Recently, China has sent a series of clear signals on this issue, and we look forward to a positive response from the United States.
