Pompeo said in an interview with CNBC that, “We’ve been

working at the State Department to make sure that everyone understands the risks.”

“Recently, some US politicians have repeatedly made rumors about Huawei but canno

t provide any evidence that other countries have requested,” Lu told a daily news conference.

He noted that the US public is having more and more doubts over the market turbulen

ce and undermined industrial cooperation caused by the trade war and technology war initiated by the US.

“So some US politicians have continually created rumors, tr

ying to mislead the public and stir up ideological opposition, which is illogical,” Lu said.

Ideological differences do not necessarily impede tra

de, industrial and technological cooperation between countries, he said.

The resident of Chengdu, Sichuan province, is a popular vlogge

and his reviews of digital appliances have won him more than 124,000 fans on social media.

He had never eaten hotpot alone before. However, he happened to be in

Beijing on business and when he heard the restaurant offered stuffed toys as co

mpanions for solo diners he decided to visit and produce a vlog so his fans would know how it felt.

Knowing that a large number of unattached people often

spend festivals alone, Pu hoped his vlog would help them enjoy their solitude.

Even though he was the only solo diner in the restaurant, Pu said he didn’t feel at all awk

ward eating with a toy companion. The vlog showed him eating casually, occasionally scrolling through his phone, an

d having a video chat with his family. The restaurant was full of diners, but no one gave him a second glance.

“Overall, it was very enjoyable; the only thing was that I can’t eat too much so I only ordered a small amount of food,” he said.

Lu’s comment followed US Treasury Secretary Steven Mn

nuchin’s comments on Wednesday that he is hopeful that both countries can “go back to the table”.

Lu told a Foreign Ministry news briefing that China has reiterated that it

s door is always open, but negotiations must be meaningful and conducted with sincerity.

“A mutually beneficial deal must be based on mutual respect, equality and win-win outcomes,” he said.

The US, out of political purposes, has used its state power to groundlessly suppress Chinese te

ch firms, which has severely affected the global development and cooperation in science and technology, he said.

It has also damaged the interests of businesses of relevant countri

es and will not win the approval and support of the international society, he added.

“Apparently it will not help create a good atmosphere for the negotiations,” he said.

 decades has prompted a huge rise in urbanization, which has see

n large numbers of unattached young people from rural areas move to large cities in sea

rch of work. Their work-dominated lifestyles mean few have friends to share meals with.

To feed this massive market, catering companies have started providi

ng more options tailored to single customers. Meituan-Dianping, a popular food del

ivery company, told the Financial Times that 65 percent of its orders come from unmarried customers.

On food delivery platforms, many restaurants offer meal deals specifically for singletons. Pizza Hut provides 15-centimeter, o

ne-person bases, while stir-fry restaurants offer reduced portions or meal deals consisting of just one or two dishe

cted to bolster domestic demand, partially offsetting the adverse impact of trade tariffs on overall growth,” the report said.

aircraft and food industries. It is in addition to the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs that are already in place.

Amid unresolved trade disputes and higher tariffs, the projected growth of world tra
