Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's nonsensical remarks and improper moves have signaled his evil intentions to use the anti-China campaign to gain personal political capital, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a press conference on Friday.
Pompeo on Thursday blackened China's political system in Germany, his first leg of a five-day European tour, claiming the so-called “China-threat” would complicate the country's telecoms infrastructure.
China strongly opposes Pompeo's ideological prejudice, Cold-War mentality and zero-sum game mindset, Geng said.
Geng said Pompeo’s attempt to drive a wedge between the Chinese people and the Communist Party of China (CPC) are doomed to fail. "I can clearly tell him that the CPC has always represented and firmly safeguarded the interests of the Chinese people, and has enjoyed the profound trust and heartfelt support of the Chinese people. Words and deeds that attempt to separate the Chinese people from the CPC are a provocation against the entire Chinese people", Geng said.
"We advise Pompeo to stop making groundless accusations against China so as not to shoot himself in the foot", Geng added.
