Recent accusations by the United States against China represent an attack on developing countries and constitute an attempt to deprive emerging economies of their right to pursue development, said State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Wang made the comment in his phone conversations with Bangladeshi Foreign Minister A. K. Abdul Momen and Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita on Thursday.

In talks with the Bangladeshi diplomat, Wang said Washington's groundless accusations against China are typical unilateral bullying behavior, according to a release by the Chinese Foreign Ministry early on Friday.

All developing countries should join hands to safeguard their legitimate rights and interests and champion international fairness and justice, he added.

When speaking to the Moroccan minister, Wang also responded to some US political figures' recent attempts to smear and stigmatize China as well as Washington's coercing of other countries to take sides.

Wang said such moves are among the most shameful actions in contemporary international politics and have fully displayed the US character of preferring unilateral bullying and selfishness.

The US fails to undertake its due international obligations while attempting to deprive developing countries of their legitimate right to seek advances, Wang said.

In this sense, supporting China means supporting multilateralism, the basic norms of international relations, the common interests of emerging market economies as well as international fairness and justice, he added.

Wang Wen, executive dean of the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies of Renmin University of China, said some political figures in the US frequently try to promote the concept of waging a new cold war against China.

"It is not only China, but also many countries that believe such a new cold war will not serve the interests of the world and will hamper China's development," he said.

Washington aims to shift blame over thorny domestic issues, bolstering unity within its borders and securing its hegemony on the global stage, the academic added.

Xu Yicong, a researcher at the China Foundation for International Studies and a former ambassador to Cuba, said US politicians' recent aggressive and coercive words and actions have given rise to unilateralism, uncertainty and instability, thus posing "a dire threat to global peace and development".

It is clear that many people bear great resentment against such policy patterns by Washington, Xu said.
