Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks about British Official’s Allegation of China’s “Political Interference Activities” in the UK Parliament
2022-01-14 23:00

Question: MI5, the British intelligence agency, has accused the British lawyer Christine Lee of being involved in political interference in the UK. Can I ask for your response to the security alert that has been issued about her? And is she working on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party?

Spokesperson:China is committed to the principle of non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs. We never engage in “interference activities”, which we see no need for. Perhaps, some people, after seeing too many James Bond movies, are imagining links where there is none. It is deeply irresponsible to make unfounded sensational remarks based on subjective conjecture. We hope relevant UK officials will refrain from making groundless comments or even pursuing sinister political agenda by hyping up the “China threat theory”.
