"We will continue to require enterprises engaged in deep-sea fishing to strictly abide by relevant laws and regulations," he added.
In the interview, Wang refuted a series of recent U.S. moves hurting bilateral ties, including U.S. closing the Chinese Consulate-General in Houston, launching global campaign against Chinese companies, making fierce attacks on the Communist Party of China and interfering into China's internal affairs.
Yang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee, said that China's rapid development over the decades, which benefited from interactions and cooperation with countries around the world, has in turn provided the United States and other countries with sustained growth impetus and important opportunities.
"This move can be considered as the latest card used by the United States in its fight against China and its technological rise. This is a battle for technological dominance," Altay Atli, a scholar at Istanbul's Bogazici University, told Xinhua.
BEIJING, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Bilateral cooperation is the only right choice for the United States and China, experts from various countries have said.
Aleksandar Paunov, first secretary of the Central Committee of Communist Party of Bulgaria, said the recent positions and statements issued by some U.S. politicians are outright provocations which must be strongly condemned.
A group of Washington politicians have time and again proved that the spirit of free enterprise and fair competition they claim to espouse is no more than a lie.
China has a huge presence in the U.S. market as well as investment, as does the United States in China, which proves there are "very deep trade ties" between the two, he noted.
The EU side should respect facts and reject double standards, it added. Enditem
