By Fox News. China believes President-elect Joe Biden represents a “new window of hope” for the country’s relationship with the United States, according to state media.
Biden’s critics have expressed concern that he will take a friendlier stance toward China than President Trump as tensions between the two rivals have risen after a trade battle and the spread of COVID-19.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told state media outlet CGTN last week that “a new window of hope is opening” with the incoming administration.
The Biden administration will “return to a sensible approach, resume dialogue with China, restore normalcy to the bilateral relations and restart cooperation,” Wang said.
MFA spokesperson: As two major countries, China and the US share extensive common interests in upholding world peace and stability and promoting global development and prosperity. Cooperation between the two sides can make good things happen for both countries and beyond.

Report: Mystery Chinese Company Suggested Charity Donation To Hunter Biden
By Daily Caller. In October 2015, a consultant working on behalf of the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC made an intriguing pitch to Hunter Biden, the son of the then-vice president.
The consultant said that CEFC, one of China’s largest private energy firms, wanted to make a contribution to a nonprofit organization that Biden chaired, according to emails obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. What’s more, CEFC also wanted to explore investing up to $100 million with an asset management firm with links to Biden.
While Biden’s relationship with CEFC has been widely explored in the media amid revelations that he is the target of a federal investigation, little is known about how the son of the future president first started his partnership with the company. . .
Senate investigators have said that Biden’s work with CEFC raises potential “counterintelligence” and “criminal financial” concerns, in part because of CEFC’s alleged links to Chinese military intelligence. A report from Senate Republicans also said that U.S. banking regulators flagged millions of dollars in wire payments from CEFC to Biden in 2017 as suspicious.
Emails from Biden’s laptop obtained by the DCNF help fill in some of the gaps of the origins of the CEFC partnership, as does an interview with the consultant who pitched Biden in October 2015. (Read more from “Report: Mystery Chinese Company Suggested Charity Donation To Hunter Biden” HERE)
