Chinese foreign ministry’s representative Lu Kang commented on the statement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo regarding the policy of Russia and China on Latin America, Tass reported.
Lu Kang described the comments as “lies” and “slander”. He added that for many years the United States regarded Latin America to be its backyard and was engaged in toppling regimes in this region. He said they are confident that people can differ lie from truth, and true friends from fake ones.
Earlier Pompeo said that the calls of Moscow and Beijing are hypocritical in calling not to interfere into Latin America’s affairs.
