China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Beijing had no interest in meddling in the upcoming US presidential election. Geng Shuang was speaking at a news conference in Beijing on Thursday.
“The US presidential election is an internal affair. We have no interest in interfering in it. Meanwhile, we hope the US [internal] politics does not involve China,” he said.
Geng also urged Washington to... Еще end its campaign blaming China for the coronavirus pandemic.
«There is no precedent in the international community. I don't think we punish anyone for large global diseases like H1N1, Ebola etc. I think we should increase mutual trust and strengthen unity to fight against the virus,» said the spokesperson.
The statement came after US President Donald Trump accused China of trying to prevent him from being re-elected as he stepped up criticism of Beijing's handling of the pandemic.
