The U.S.' Secretary of State Antony Blinken's accusing China of spreading false information is in itself false information, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lin Jian on Wednesday. China has made solemn representations over Blinken's remarks, he said.

During Wednesday's routine press conference, when asked to comment on Blinken's remarks during the Summit for Democracy on Monday accusing China of spreading false information, Lin said that China strongly opposes and is firmly against the remarks, and has made solemn representations to the U.S. side.

"Democracy versus authoritarianism" hyped up at the so-called "summit for democracy" is a false narrative, while accusing China is spreading disinformation itself is disinformation, Lin noted.

He said that the U.S. is the world's biggest source and spreader of disinformation, and the world sees this clearly.

China's economy maintains a good momentum toward stable growth, but the U.S. keeps hyping up "China collapse" and "peak China". The Belt and Road Initiative brings benefits to people of many countries, but the U.S. keeps hyping up the so-called "debt trap." The true stories on China told by foreigners were described by the U.S. as "China manipulation of public opinion." Policy steps to promote stability and development in Xinjiang were labeled by the U.S. as "forced labor" and "genocide," Lin noted.

"U.S. politicians, including the CIA director, on multiple occasions revealed their covert tactics of spreading remarks to smear China, such as bribing the media," Lin said. "All these show that the U.S. has spread China-related disinformation in an organized and well-planned way for a long time and it's America's important approach to wage a battle of perception against China."

Lies and conspiracies will eventually backfire, the spokesperson warned. "The harder the U.S. tries to fabricate rumors and mislead the world, the more obvious its credibility deficit is to the world, and the more notorious its name will be," he said.
