China’s Ambassador Cui Tiankai said on Wednesday that the Chinese-US cooperation will definitely continue despite the current coronacrisis. Even in the post-pandemic era, the bilateral ties between the two states will be as strong as usual, a Chinese diplomat said at the Annual Gala of the U.S.-China Business Council.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the priorities this year but the Chines-American relationships are still close. «The year 2021 is essential as we greet the dawn of a post-pandemic era, where China-U.S. cooperation cannot and should not be absent,» said ambassador Cui at annual Gala.
China’s efforts on research and development of vaccines and medications are making good progress in many nations across the globe. That progress is bringing hope and confidence to all of us, said the Chinese ambassador. However, the instability and uncertainties of a post-pandemic world will pose severe challenges to global governance, Xinhua news agency reported.
«We believe that whenever human society faces major difficulties and challenges, countries with stronger capabilities shoulder greater responsibilities,» Cui said.
