A senior official from China's Ministry of Railways (MOR) on Monday dismissed an allegation by a former MOR official that the MOR had exaggerated how fast the country's high-speed trains could run.

"The claims of the former MOR official are groundless," said the MOR's chief engineer He Huawu, adding that China's high-speed trains are "fast, comfortable and safe."

He made the comment in reply to a claim made by former MOR deputy chief engineer Zhou Yimin, who said in an article published by financial magazine Caijing last week that the MOR's claims that its high-speed trains could run at 350 km per hour were "fraudulent."
