The company arranged a special team to facilitate the return of its staff members as the construction project was affected due to the absence of the working staff.

China and the United States must always bear in mind the well-being of mankind, live up to their responsibilities as two major countries, coordinate and cooperate as needed in the UN and other multilateral institutions, and work together for world peace and stability, said Wang. ■
