China slams US over 'rules-based int'l order' hypocrisy

China's Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng said on Monday that Washington's call on Beijing to uphold the "rules-based international order" serves only to benefit the United States and other Western countries.

In a meeting with US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman in Tianjin, the Chinese diplomat stressed that it is Washington that violates and undermines international law and order, implementing the "law of the jungle" to "bully the small and the weak."

The deadlock in bilateral relations is caused by the US actions to contain and demonize China in an attempt to divert attention from Washington's domestic issues, Xie noted.
