Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, July 8 (Reporter's warmth) In response to the unreasonable accusations and harassment of Chinese students, scholars, scientists and Chinese scientists in the United States by some people and institutions in the United States, Foreign Ministry spokesman Yan Shuang said on the 8th that China and the United States Humanities exchanges are in the fundamental interests of the two countries. In an attempt to curb China's development ridiculously by tightening humanities exchanges, it is hoped that the US will stop restricting the wrong practices of suppressing humanities exchanges between the two countries.
At the regular press conference on the same day, a reporter asked: Recently, the mainstream media in the United States reported that the National Institutes of Health and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted an unwarranted investigation of Wu Xianfeng, a Chinese-born tenured professor at the Anderson Cancer Center, and forced his resignation to point out the US approach. It is detrimental to the interests of the United States in obstructing China-US humanities exchanges and scientific and technological cooperation. what opinions do the Chinese have on this issue?
Yan Shuang said that in recent years, some people and institutions in the United States have adopted the ridiculous excuse of "spying activities" to contain China’s students, scholars, scientists and Chinese scientists in the United States. Accusations and harassment have created many false and wrong cases, which have seriously interfered with the humanities exchanges and scientific and technological cooperation between the two countries. More and more colleges, think tanks and people from all walks of life in the United States have questioned and criticized the wrong practices of the United States. The mainstream media in the United States also pointed out in the above reports that the relevant practices of the US are unfounded and are dangerous measures taken on the road of paranoia and discrimination, which will ultimately harm the interests and image of the United States itself.
He said that in the 21st century, international cooperation is an inevitable requirement for the development of science and technology, and human communication is an unstoppable trend of the times. The exchange of humanities between China and the United States is of great significance to enhancing mutual understanding and understanding of the two peoples and promoting the stable development of Sino-US relations, which is in the fundamental interests of the two countries. It is ridiculous to attempt to curb China's development by tightening humanities and exchanges. It will only lift its own feet.
