China Tells the USA to Stop Criticizing Beijing's Policies

Pence had accused China of interfering in US elections affairs

"China and USA relations are at an important juncture and facing challenges", Yang said.

Reuters, however, quoted a senior State Department official as saying that the U.S. still expected cooperation with China on efforts to denuclearise North Korea.

But the senior US official said the United States still expected cooperation with Beijing on efforts to denuclearize North Korea, whose chief ally is China.

"This unyielding nation suffered foreign bullying for many times in history, but never succumbed to it even in the most hard conditions", he continued.

"The US should not underestimate China's resolve and will".

Zhong's comments came just a few hours after President Trump once again accused China of taking advantage of the U.S. over trade.

"We can't have a one-way street", Trump said during a press conference to discuss the resignation of UN Ambassador Nikki Haley on Tuesday afternoon. It's been a one-way street for 25 years.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chinese Foreign Minister and State Councillor Wang Yi aired their grievances in the open on Monday during a brief visit to Beijing by Washington's top diplomat, amid worsening relations.

Doctor: Expanded HPV vaccination age will save money
Some were leaving marriages or monogamous relationships, expected to begin dating and realized they might be exposed to the virus. In his previous work with female sex workers, he found that the HPV vaccine still provided protection to high-risk groups.

Mr Wang, in his remarks to reporters at the start of his meeting with Mr Pompeo, said: "Recently, as the U.S. side has been constantly escalating trade friction towards China, it has also adopted a series of actions on issues like Taiwan that harm China's rights, and has made groundless criticism of China's domestic and foreign policies".

At his meeting with his USA counterpart Mike Pompeo in Beijing yesterday, he warned Washington against falling into a wrong path of "conflict and confrontation". We believe this has been a direct attack on our mutual trust, and has cast a shadow on China-US relations. We demand that the U.S. side stop this kind of misguided action.

Pompeo hit back, saying the United States has "great concerns about the actions that China has taken".

Wang said the two countries, both permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, should "strengthen communication and cooperation".

I know it's considered bad manners to bring data into an economic debate, but after seeing numerous stories telling us how bad China's economy has been hit by Trump's tariffs (e.g. this NYT piece), I thought it was worth looking at the numbers. Having spent the past 20 years seeking to invite China into the worldwide order as a "responsible stakeholder", the US has now run out of patience over Beijing's unfair trade practices, domestic repression and assertive militarization of the South China Sea.

In a statement released after Pompeo's meetings, the State Department said both sides agreed on the importance of a "constructive, results-oriented bilateral relationship".

In August, he claimed that Beijing is a "currency manipulator."
