Confrontation leads to a lose-lose situation: Chinese embassy in Washington

(People's Daily)    10:44, December 20, 2017

The Chinese embassy spokesperson said Monday that for China and the United States, cooperation leads to win-win outcomes, while confrontation can only lead to a lose-lose situation.

The remarks came after US President Trump released his new national security strategy, which puts "America First" while labels China and Russia as Washington's "competitors" and "rival powers".

The Chinese spokesperson said preaching rivalry and confrontation goes against the global trend, and will lead to failure.

It is completely selfish for a country to claim that its own interests are superior to the interests of other countries and to the shared interests of the international community. This mentality will only lead to isolation, the spokesperson noted.

China has always been constructive in the pursuit of world peace, global development, and the maintenance of the international order.

How China and the United States view each other, and define the relationship between them, not only affects the interests of both peoples, but also the interests of the international community.

The US' rhetoric also runs counters to China's efforts to cooperate with the US on bilateral and global issues, the spokesperson added.

The Chinese official suggested the United States to abandon its outdated zero-sum thinking, and work together with China to seek common ground and engage in win-win cooperation.
