China has slammed as “very ridiculous” US Vice-President Mike Pence’s “unwarranted accusations” that it is meddling in the United States’ internal affairs and elections.
Associate Professor Li Mingjiang of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore said what the Chinese were accused of doing – trying to influence upcoming US midterm elections – was something countries like Israel and other American allies have been doing to influence political outcomes in the US to support their national interests. He said China is unlikely to stop such activities or those that help shape the American public’s views of China.
