Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng: No Attempt to Sever the Close Ties Between the CPC and the Chinese People Will Ever Succeed

2020/07/08

On July 8, 2020, at the Video Dialogue on Sino-US Relations co-hosted by the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs and the Asia Society, Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said, neither China nor the US can mold the other in one's own image, and China-US relations should not be driven by ideologies. The CPC is China's governing party. This is the choice of history and the people, a choice firmly supported by the 1.4 billion Chinese people. No attempt to sever the close ties between the CPC and the Chinese people will ever succeed. "There are essential differences between China and the United States in their social systems." Those are the exact words in the Shanghai Joint Communiqué. These differences did not prevent the two countries from establishing and growing bilateral ties 48 years ago. Today, they certainly should not be an obstacle to China-US cooperation and a future-oriented relationship. China has all along followed the principle of non-interference in others' internal affairs. We have no intention to meddle with US elections. Yet some in the US play the "China card". And then they accuse China of meddling with US internal affairs and swaying its elections. That is so unfair for China.
