Beijing calls to stop demonizing China
Beijing urged the United States on Monday to stop “demonizing” China. This request was made public by the Chinese government after a working visit by US Secretary of State Wendy Sherman to the Chinese city of Tianjin.
”We urge the United States to change their extremely misguided and dangerous policies, ” China said in a statement. According to the statement, the US sees China as an “imaginary enemy”.
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that there is no movement in the relationship between the two countries and that the relationship is facing major problems. Just last week, China was accused by the US, among others, of being responsible for a large number of cyber attacks, after thousands of government agencies and companies were hacked through a leak in Microsoft’s email software. China denied the attacks and stated that the US is the “largest source of cyberattacks in the world”.
Sherman arrived in Tianjin on Sunday. Later this week she will also have a meeting with Chinese Foreign minister Wang Yi. After Climate Representative John Kerry, Sherman is the second top official in the Cabinet of US President Joe Biden to visit China.
