China slams EU report on COVID-19 disinformation


08:32, April 29, 2021

The Chinese Mission to the European Union (EU) has slammed the European External Action Service (EEAS) for accusing China of disinformation regarding COVID-19. The mission said, "a disinformation report that has no factual basis is in itself an example of disinformation."

The remarks on Thursday came after the EEAS released an updated version of the "short assessment of narratives and disinformation around the COVID-19 pandemic." The report accused China and Russia of using state-controlled media to spread disinformation and claimed that "vaccine diplomacy" has replaced "mask diplomacy."
