China firmly opposes the US making China an imaginary enemy, urging the country to focus on enhancing its own competitiveness, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on Wednesday.
The US Senate Tuesday voted to pass the Innovation and Competition Act of 2021, declaring a unilateral competition to China over strategic, economic, diplomatic, technological and other means.
At Wednesday’s routine press briefing, Wang Wenbin pointed out the biggest threat to US' competitiveness is itself.
“It’s more important than anything else to run its own affairs” rather than taking China as a potential threat, Wang said.
The bill also distorted the facts with China-related content, drawing up the so-called “China threat theory” and interfering in China’s internal affairs, such as issues related to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Xinjiang, and Tibet.
“We hope that the US will correct its mindset, view China's development and China-US relations in a rational manner, stop advancing the relevant bill and interfering in China’s internal affairs, so as not to damage the relationship and cooperation between the two sides,” Wang stressed.
