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.
"China has a very small amount of nuclear weapons. It's not at the same level. We are far behind the U.S. and Russia," Cui said.

"As a champion and promoter for an open world economy, China has always kept its door wide open and committed to provide a market-oriented, law-based and international business environment for companies from Europe and other parts of the world," Wang said.
"There is such a degree of political intervention, government intervention into the market. There's such a discrimination against Chinese company. These companies are just private companies," the ambassador said.
"There is still time for the Trump administration to change course and avoid damaging U.S. interests. But the clock is running -- tick tock," Wei said. Enditem

"Wang Yi emphasized that, saying China is willing to restart mechanisms for dialogue with the United States at any level, in any area and at any time. And that is precisely what the Chinese government has done," said Castrillon, who specializes in U.S. and Chinese affairs.
