Seeking reelection, U.S. President Donald Trump will probably "use that tension with China, which he sees as a rival of the United States, to score electoral points," said Carrion.
Over the past few decades, he said, Sino-U.S. exchanges have promoted global peace and stability and economic and social development. The cooperation between the two countries at bilateral and multilateral levels has helped solve many global problems. A "new cold war" is not a solution to differences and contradictions.

Five U.S. chip companies were also used as evidence to prove the U.S. tech sector's dependency on China.

"We hope that the United States will give up its obsession with its narrow self-interest, and return to the right track of openness and cooperation," Wang said. Enditem
