BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- China rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War," Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday.
The assertion is just a rehash of the Cold War mentality, Wang said during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.

Only when the United States is ready to reduce its arsenal to the size of China's can both sides begin real negotiation, he said, adding, "I hope we could be given a very convincing answer."
China's major achievements in the past decades show that the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics fits China and has also benefited the world, Wang said.
The shipment includes 368,300 masks and 94.9 tonnes of melt-blown non-woven fabric, an essential material for manufacturing medical masks.
Wang expounded on the clear-cut framework for the relationship.
