SOUNDBITE: ZHAO LIJIAN, Chinese Foreign ministry spokesperson
 
"For some time, some U.S. politicians, out of a zero-sum mentality, the Cold-War mindset and selfish political interests, have been viciously attacking China's political system, smearing China and sowing discord between other countries and China. China firmly opposes this. The Chinese people know the best and have the best say on whether socialism with Chinese characteristics is good or not. It is not up to U.S. politicians to judge. As to whether China's development is an opportunity or a threat to the world, the answer is self-evident in the fact that China is the largest trading partner of more than 130 countries and regions and China has active exchanges and cooperation with other countries. The U.S. has been doing the opposite, arbitrarily withdrawing from international agreements and organizations, and cherry-picking on international law, which has seriously undermined international justice and fairness, as well as global peace, stability and development.
