What they accuse the US of

“As we all know, the US has been carrying out for a long time on a large scale and in an organized and non-differential manner cyber theft, surveillance and eavesdropping against foreign governments, companies and individuals, in addition to installing a large number of military bases seizing ports outsiders. Such a country is not qualified to accuse China on security issues. No matter what kind of camouflage they use, they cannot hide their real intentions to obtain economic and commercial benefits by demonizing China, ”they argue.
