Speaking
on the sidelines of the National People’s Congress in Beijing Sunday,
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Wu said “a political virus is spreading in
the United States” which is “using every opportunity to attack and
smear China.” 

Wang
said China has no intention to either change or replace the U.S.,
and that the U.S. should abandon its “wishful thinking of changing
China and stopping 1.4 billion people in their historic march toward
modernization.”

The
Trump administration has clashed with Beijing over a range of issues in
recent months, including trade, technology, and the coronavirus
pandemic, with President Donald Trump himself alleging the virus escaped
from a lab in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the virus was first
detected late last year. 



China’s
proposed security law for Hong Kong is the latest flashpoint between
the two sides, which critics say threatens Hong Kong’s semi-autonomous
status.
