Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a telephone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that the US has already lost its reason, and morality, and trust, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“The US is shifting its responsibilities to others, using the pandemic to discredit other countries and pin the blame on others. They do not stop at anything; even create hot spots and confrontations in international relations. They have already lost reason, morality, and trust,” Wang Yi said.

He added that the United States is entirely undisguised in its policy of prioritizing its country and pushing selfishness, unilateral actions, and intimidation to the extreme.

“The US in its policy towards China is reviving the infamous “McCarthyism” and the long-outdated “cold war” mentality, deliberately provoking an ideological confrontation, violating international law and the basic norms of international relations. China will not follow the lead of the few anti-Chinese forces in the United States, but will firmly protect its legitimate interests and the country’s authority,” said Wang Yi.

The Chinese Foreign Minister added that ” China and Russia, as major responsible States, should continue to promote not only bilateral relations to a higher level, but also work together with countries that take an objective and fair position, resist any actions that violate the international order and run counter to the course of history, jointly maintain global peace and stability, protect international justice and impartiality, and support global progress and development.”
