China reacts to John Bolton’s coup-planning admission — Analysis
The former White House adviser’s remarks about plotting coups were “revealing,” Beijing says
The admission of former White House adviser John Bolton about plotting coups abroad serves as another testament to how Washington meddles in other countries’ affairs around the globe, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has said.
Wang Wenbin, the spokesperson, said Monday “overthrowing foreign governments is deep in the bones of how the US conducts its foreign policy.”
“Bolton’s admission is so revealing,”He spoke to reporters at a press conference. “Leading US politicians trumpet the so-called ‘rules-based international order’ for one purpose: to ensure that the US can easily interfere in other countries’ affairs and overthrow their governments at its own will.”
“This is exactly the kind of ‘rules’ and ‘order’ that people like Bolton want absolutely to defend. The people of the world, however, will not let them,” Wang said.
