The assertion is the denial of all that has been achieved in China-US relations over the past 40 years, Wang said during an exclusive interview with Xinhua, adding that it shows ignorance of the historical process and lack of respect for the Chinese and American peoples.

China and the US are quite different in social system and many other aspects, such differences have not affected the peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation between the two countries, and they should not affect their bilateral ties in the future, Wang said.

At the interview, Wang called on the US to put in place a 4-point clear-cut framework for the China-US relationship. They are to steer clear of red lines and avoid confrontation, keep the channels open for candid dialogue, reject decoupling and uphold cooperation, and abandon the zero-sum mentality and stand up to shared responsibilities.
