US should avoid sending wrong message over S China Sea

The fourth round of the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) has been held in Beijing since Thursday.

In the two-day meeting, the two countries will grasp the opportunity to further implement the consensus reached by their leaders, promote the construction of their bilateral cooperative partnership, enhance communication and coordination in macroeconomic policies as well as major international and regional issues, and boost pragmatic economic and trade cooperation.

It is worth noting that China has aired its concerns and requests to the United States in an active manner through the dialogue in recent years.

For instance, it has requested the United States to stop sending warships or aircraft on frequent reconnaissance missions close to China's coast, lift restrictions on high-tech exports to China, recognize China's full market economy status, create a level playing field for investors from China, and remove investment barriers targeted at China. Such requests have increased the value of the dialogue, and made it more balanced.

The high-profile "return" of the United States to the Asia-Pacific region has caused widespread concerns. The country has greatly increased its military deployment in the region, especially in the western Pacific region, stirring up unnecessary trouble in the region. Furthermore, it has actually intervened in the South China Sea dispute despite repeated claims that it has no intention of intervening.
