US wrong for treating China as opponent - FM

The United States made "a strategic misjudgment" by treating China as an opponent, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian (pictured) noted on Wednesday, adding that Beijing has no intention of "replacing or provoking" any country.

Delivering remarks at a press briefing in Beijing, Zhao urged US officials to drop "Cold War and zero-sum mentality," responding to US Defense Secretary Mark Esper's call for stronger alliances between like-minded democracies to counter China and Russia.

Washinton's approach in relations with Beijing and Moscow should be more rational, Zhao added.
