“China-US relations have come to a new crossroads, and a new window of hope is opening,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in an interview with state-owned broadcaster CGTN.

“We hope that the next US administration will return to a sensible approach, resume dialogue with China, restore normalcy to the bilateral relations, and restart cooperation,” he went on…

Yi said China-US relations had run into “unprecedented difficulties” in recent years and accused US policymakers of holding a “serious misconception” about China.

“Some see China as the so-called biggest threat and their China policy based on this misperception is simply wrong,” he said, accusing the Trump administration of trying to “suppress China and start a new Cold War.”
