MADRID, 14 One. (EUROPEAN PRESS) –
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin on Friday condemned accusations made by Britain of possible interference and stated that “one has seen too many agent James Bond films.”
His words came after British military intelligence (known as MI5) accused the Asian giant of approaching British deputies to “disrupt” British policy.
“Some have seen many James Bond films and made unnecessary associations,” Wang said at a news conference, according to state newspaper ‘The Global Times’. As such, it has been clarified that China “does not need to interfere in political meddling activities.”
Wang also described such statements as “irresponsible” and “alarmist”. “China hopes that senior British officials will stop making these kinds of statements,” he said.
For its part, a spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in the UK has emphasized that “China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries. We do not need and do not seek to buy influence in foreign parliaments.”
