Q: What is the difference between The U.S. government is not seeking the regime change. and The U.S. government is not seeking a regime change. ?
A: Without knowing the context that these sentences were spoken, all I can talk about is the general difference between "the" and "a."

The difference in "a" and "the" is in how we think of the noun. For example, we think of "a dog" differently than "the dog." So "a dog bit me" is different from "the dog bit me." They're both talking about one dog, but with "a dog" we think of the dog in a generic way. We don't think of it as an individual with it's own unique traits. It's just one member from the category dog. Well when we think of things like categories, we think of everything in that category like it's the same. So when we think of "a dog" we think of all dogs as being the same.

"The dog" is different. Now we're thinking about a specific dog with it's own unique traits. It's unique from all other dogs.

Well, in English, we have a tendency to use "a" when we introduce something and "the" when we talk about it after that. So I could tell you, "A dog bit me today. It was really scary and I cried because the dog was mean."

I used "a dog" to let you know of what category of noun I was going to be talking about (the category dog) and then once you were aware that I was talking about a dog, I used "the dog" because now you're aware which dog I'm talking about--I'm talking about the dog that bit me.

So when we use "a" we're just generically talking about a category and when we use "the" we're pointing to a specific thing in that category.

Therefore, "...seeking a regime change" is used when the speaker thinks you don't know which regime change they're talking about or they don't care about talking about any specific one. They just want to talk about all regime changes in general.

"...seeking the regime change" is used when the speaker is thinking of a specific regime change and they think you can determine from the context which one they're talking about.
Q: What is the difference between The government is doing its best to solve blah blah... and The government is doing their best to solve blah blah... ?
A: No necessarily, they both can be talking about the government. Its like saying the government as a whole (its best) or as a group of individuals (themselves).

Maybe you can just say, "share its economic success and culture with the rest of the world"? This might have a slightly different meaning though. But I do think it's a bit strange to describe one's country's culture as excellent or superior, so I separated it out.
