China FM: US Troublemaker of World     12/13 06:31

   BEIJING (AP) -- China's foreign minister on Friday labeled the United States 
the "troublemaker of the world," citing the Trump administration's withdrawal 
from a number of international treaties. 

   Wang Yi said the U.S. had conceded its right to international leadership and 
had "seriously damaged the foundation of the hard-won mutual trust between 
China and the U.S."

   "We are willing to resolve the contradictions and differences with the U.S. 
through dialogues and discussions based on equality and mutual respect, but we 
will never accept any unilateral sanction or bullying," he said.

   Washington's departure from international agreements had "brought many 
problems and troubles to the international community, and has made the US the 
troublemaker of the world today," Wang said. 

    Wang's remarks come amid heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing 
over trade, politics and allegations of the theft of intellectual property by 

   Addressing a conference on Chinese foreign policy, Wang said that the U.S. 
had "launched deliberate attacks and defamation" against China over issues 
concerning China's "territorial sovereignty, national dignity and core 
interests." They include human rights and the northwestern region of Xinjiang, 
where authorities have detained more than 1 million minority Muslims in 
political reeducation camps.
