China says some “political forces” in the United States have taken bilateral relations hostage and are pushing the world’s two biggest economies towards “a new Cold War.” 

Speaking on the sidelines of the National People’s Congress in Beijing Sunday, Chinese Foreign minister Wang Wu said “a political virus is spreading in the United States” which is “using every opportunity to attack and smear China.” 

Wang said China has no intention to either change or replace the US, and that the US should abandon its “wishful thinking of changing China and stopping 1.4 billion people in their historic march toward modernization.”

The Trump administration has clashed with Beijing over a range of issues in recent months, including trade, technology, and the coronavirus pandemic, with President Donald Trump himself alleging the virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the virus was first detected late last year. 

China’s proposed security law for Hong Kong is the latest flashpoint between the two sides, which critics say threatens Hong Kong’s semi-autonomous status.

China, like the former Sovit Union will lose. Its just an excuse to deflect the blames of being responsible for the COVID-19.

It should just apologize to the world and be held accountable.

Interesting article. After America helped to win the World War II, now wants to rule the world like Germany did?

That is unfair. This international problem should be named the Trade War. It was America that started it all by removing the Gold standard of international currency and imposing its local currency on Planet Earth!

Soon the local currency of the dollar will be the official currency in outer space, the moon, and Mars!

Lysol, that is wishful thinking. China is not the USSR. It is a semi-capitalist economy which might even have already surpassed the US economy by now. So, do not expect it to collapse any time soon.

Also, where did HIV start? Why didn't we blame that country for bringing HIV? Covid-19 cannot be called the Wuhan virus because disease nomenclature is not based on the "origin" of a pandemic!

I think Trump has been very provocative, he has constantly used the word the Chinese Virus as opposed to corona virus and it is clear that his intention is to provoke and to annoy the Chinese to react but they have been cool and civil in handling the insult.

Be it as it may, its a cold war, an economic war

China's Path to Self Destruction Starts in Hong Kong. Not to mention the COVID-19 pandemic.
