FM: Responsible U.S. politicians should preserve and promote Sino-U.S. ties

BEIJING, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Responsible U.S. politicians should be willing and able to preserve and promote the development of Sino-U.S. relations, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Weimin said Wednesday.

Liu made the comments at a regular press conference, refuting accusations that China has stolen jobs from the United States and that the country has shown "disrespect for human rights."

China opposes the groundless criticisms voiced by some candidates running in the U.S. Republican Party Primary Election, Liu said.

He added that responsible U.S. politicians should realize that close cooperation between China and the U.S. accords with the interests of the United States.

"Accusing China will be of no use in dealing with domestic problems in the U.S.," Liu said, adding that it also won't help a Republican candidate win the election.

China is politically savvy enough to understand that as far as American domestic politics are concerned, this is the open season where any American politician contending for the highest office will take potshots at China. This ranges from attacking China"s so-called lack of human rights, the so-called "stealing" of American jobs, and the so-called dangers posed by China"s legitimate defence buildup. Such is the vile nature of American politics. While the American media often regales the rest of the world about the supposed "superiority" of the American system, it often ignores the fact that this same system more often than not panders to the lowest possible common denominator - the fears and prejudices of the untutored and simpletons who find it easy to blame China for the current malaise that their successsive generations of leaders have brought upon them. America needs leaders who can pull the country out of its addiction to war and debt, and regain the manufacturing prowess that it once had. The country does not need demogogues who, in addition to blaming others, make all kinds of wild promises and quick-fixes that pull the country down in its own quagmire.
