China denies meddling in US mid-term elections

BEIJING, Sept 19, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – China on Wednesday denied US President
Donald Trump’s claims that it was meddling in the US mid-term elections by
taking aim at his political base in their escalating trade war.

“Anyone who has some knowledge of China’s diplomacy will know that we will
not interfere in other countries’ domestic affairs,” foreign ministry
spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular press briefing.

“We don’t want others to interfere in our domestic politics, and we will
not interfere in the domestic politics of others.”
