"We have to keep national security concerns in perspective. Not everything is a national security emergency," said Craig Allen, president of the U.S.-China Business Council in a panel discussion on the occasion of releasing the survey report.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks at a press briefing when asked to comment on a survey released by the U.S.-China Business Council (USCBC).
Today's China is not the former Soviet Union and China has no intention of becoming another United States, noted Wang.
China never intends to and will never interfere in U.S. elections or other U.S. internal affairs. Likewise, the United States must abandon its fantasy of remodeling China to U.S. needs. It must stop its meddling in China's internal affairs, and stop its irrational cracking down on China's legitimate rights and interests, he said.
"China has shown its interest in cooperating with other countries in the development of a vaccine against the new coronavirus, even announcing that it will make its vaccines a public good with universal access," he said.

Still, it will be necessary to establish a clear framework for relations between China and the United States, given the current complex situation of ties, he said.
