Maggiorelli, a professor of political science at Bogota's Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, said that China's prudence was evident in recent statements by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who rejected any attempt to start a "new Cold War" that would destabilize both nations and risk global progress.
China has never prohibited or prevented relevant accounting firms from offering audit work papers to overseas regulators, the CSRC said.
Maggiorelli said he agreed with the Chinese foreign minister that it was futile for the United States to try and interfere in China's internal affairs, saying it underestimated the strong bond between the Chinese people and the ruling Communist Party of China.
At the same time, China continued to actively promote foreign economic and trade cooperation, which effectively boosted the total world demand and promoted the development of international trade, Zhao said, adding that foreign-funded projects with an investment of more than 100 million U.S. dollars increased to 320 in the first half of the year.
The supplies are due to arrive in Laos by the end of August.
Looking to the future, Maggiorelli highlighted the relevance of Chinese President Xi Jinping's vision of building a community with a shared future for mankind.
Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi has recently affirmed that China rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War," said Professor David Castrillon of Externado University in Colombia's capital Bogota.
