BEIJING, July 20 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday urged the U.S. Republican Party to stop groundless accusations against China and interference in China's domestic affairs.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang made the remarks when asked to comment on the 2016 platform adopted at the Republican National Convention on Monday, which contains accusations about China on issues related to Taiwan, Tibet, trade and the South China Sea.
"All political parties in the United States should view China's development in an objective and rational manner and correctly understand the issues that emerge in bilateral ties," Lu said.
"We hope relevant parties stop their groundless accusations against China and interference in China's domestic affairs and contribute more to bilateral trust and cooperation," Lu said.
Promoting stable growth of China-U.S. relations serves the interests of the two countries and the peace and development of the Asia-Pacific region and the world, the spokesperson said, adding that "both sides should adhere to this right direction."
