In a bold attack on the US, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying, attacked Washington for being obsessed with the Chinese Communist Party. Speaking on Friday, she refuted US Attorney General, William Barr’s claims that China poses a greater threat than Iran and Russia in the upcoming US election. This week, Mr Barr claimed the latest intelligence showed China had now become more of a threat to the US election than Russia.
In response, Hua said: “This is another proof of the US ‘diplomacy of lies’.
“We hope the US will stop measuring others by their own yardsticks.
“Unlike the US, China doesn’t have the meme of interfering in others’ domestic affairs, nor is it interested or willing to do so.
“Certain politicians seem so obsessed with making an issue out of China.
“They’ve churned out various lies but they’re probably still busy seeking and fabricating evidence.
“The dazzling dramas around the US presidential election have been going on for quite some time.
“They can by all means save this game for themselves.
“We don’t ever want to be part of it.”
