ShareSeptember 25, 2019China does not intend to play 'Game of Thrones' on the global stage, but warns the United States that it will not admit interference on sovereignty issues, including that concerning Hong Kong, where anti-government protests have been underway for more than three months . Beijing Foreign Minister Wang Yi said this during a dinner organized by the US China Business Council, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, a few hours after the intervention of US President Donald Trump , which issued harsh warnings in Beijing both about the ongoing tariff dispute and the Hong Kong issue.
"The search for hegemony has never been in China's DNA and China has no intention of playing Game of Thrones on the international stage," said Wang. "For now and in the immediate future, the United States is the strongest country in the world". Considering that China could undermine the US from its global role is "a strategic miscalculation" on the part of Washington, and "reflects a lack of self-confidence," the head of Chinese diplomacy continued. Wang then called for respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China, hoping that the US would respect sovereignty and "the efforts of the Hong Kong government to stop violence and restore order".
