The Chinese Ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming has hit out at British MPs over “attacking” China over the coronavirus pandemic.
On Tuesday Xiaoming told China-Britain Business Council webinar that the comments will “poison UK-China relations” over “unchecked” comments.
The Chinese Ambassador said, “Such talks are a political virus.
“If they go unchecked, they’ll poison UK-China relations and even international solidarity.
“We must stay on high alert and say no to these remarks.”
Xiaoming told the webinar that the coronavirus outbreak in China is “under control” and the economy has a “steady momentum of recovery.”
He added, “China will continue to be the factory and the market of the world.
“China will remain an important powerhouse for world economic growth.”
He accused the US President Donald Trump of spreading rumours and slanders over the origins of the virus and Trump is “politicising the public health issue.”
He accused the US of a “politically motivated” attack on China over calls for an enquiry into the origins of the virus.
Xiaoming said, “They want to pass the buck over their lack of response, lack of work and efforts to contain the virus, to China.
“There’s a game of blaming, scapegoating. It is not helpful for the international response.”
Meanwhile, a classified Chinese intelligence report warns that China and the US could face a Tiananmen Square global backlash over Covid-19, which could lead to an “armed confrontation.”
The classified report warns that Beijing could erupt due to the rising hostility they are facing from global leaders over the pandemic, sources have said.
The classified report was presented by the Ministry of State Security to top leaders in Beijing, including President Xi Jingping.
Sources said that global hostilities towards China is the highest it has been since the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989.
Beijing are facing strong anti-China sentiment which they claim is being led by the US and are therefore preparing a worst-case scenario ready for “armed confrontation” with the USA.
The US Navy have been conducting military drills in the South China Seas which has brought more tension between the two global powers.
US military activity in the heavily contested South China Sea (SCS) has dramatically increased and the risk of a confrontation is increasing.
Australia have been warned by China to stop investigating Beijing and Wuhan over the outbreak of coronavirus, after publishing a damning 15-page dossier.
Beijing have accused Australia of copying the US in a conducting research independently from the World Health Organisation (WHO).
A damning intelligence report compiled by the Australian Secret Intelligence Service, the equivalent of Britain’s MI6 has condemned China over their secrecy.
