Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng: In Handling Its Relations with the International Community, the US Does Not Allow Anyone to Be Better or More Competitive Than Itself

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, in rhetoric, the US is talking about market spirit and fair competition. In action, it just moves in the opposite direction -- it does not allow anyone to be better or more competitive than itself. With its rapid development, China has offered so much to the world: contributing to over 30% of global economic growth for years in running, and over 70% to global poverty reduction. For such a country that has done nothing but good deeds, the US has chosen to turn a blind eye and go after it by all means. Even in such areas as people-to-people and cultural exchanges, the US is getting more and more hysteric. It has chosen to put scholars under surveillance, expel journalists, arrest students, and shut down Confucius Institutes. All this makes people wonder: is McCarthyism back in the US?! The China-US relationship is so vital for the future of China, the United States, and the world. It must not be hijacked by extremists, or be dragged into a cul-de-sac.
