China’s Deputy Foreign Minister Le Yucheng identified the United States with a “pretending to be asleep” people.
As Le Yucheng said to RIA Novosti, Washington still does not believe Beijing’s official statements about the situation in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Despite the official information, American politicians “prefer to believe the stories composed by radical elements in the region”, as well as fake news in the Western media.
“It is impossible to wake up a person who pretends to be asleep,” said the Chinese diplomat.
Le Yucheng accused Washington of acting on the principle of the presumption of guilt. He noted that China invited representatives of several Western embassies to visit the region, but no one responded.
