US criticism of China is ‘lies’ – international minister

MUNICH – China’s State Councillor and International Minister Wang Yi dismissed US criticism of his nation as “lies” on Saturday, shortly after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized its international coverage and need for “empire.””All these accusations towards China are lies, not based mostly on details,” Wang informed the Munich Safety Convention. “But when we change the topic of the lie from China to America, perhaps these lies develop into details.”US Secretary of Protection Mark Esper, talking on the convention instantly after Pompeo and earlier than Wang, accused Beijing of a “nefarious technique” by means of telecommunications agency Huawei.
