China is preemptively showing its bottom line ahead of the visit by U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman by demanding the U.S. to stop inferring in its internal affairs and expressing its positions to guard its interests, the Global Times reported after an announcement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which also said Minister and State Councillor Wang Yi will meet Sherman. A high-level meeting of this kind still underscores that a more stable China-U.S. relation will benefit the world, the newspaper said citing Diao Daming, a scholar at the Renmin University. If the U.S. brings up questions about Xinjiang and Hong Kong, it will be wasting time, won't save the declining relationship and may damage cooperation on issues such as climate change, the newspaper said citing Lv Xiang, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
