China accused Australia of typical anti-China hysteria and paranoia on Wednesday over fake news reports about so-called Chinese influence and infiltration in Australia.

“Some Australian media have repeatedly fabricated news stories about the so-called Chinese influence and infiltration in Australia,” the Chinese Embassy in Australia said in an English-language statement on its website.

“Those reports, which were made up out of thin air and filled with cold war mentality and ideological bias, reflected a typical anti-China hysteria and paranoid (sic).”

The statement said that the reports made unjustifiable accusations against the Chinese government, and vilified Chinese students and the Chinese community in Australia, tarnishing Australia’s reputation as a multicultural society.

It also said that political mutual trust between the two countries was harmed by the irresponsible remarks of some Australian politicians and officials.

The statement highlighted China’s commitment to developing friendly relations with other countries on the basis of mutual respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity, and non-interference in each other’s internal affairs.

“China has no intention to interfere in Australia’s internal affairs or exert influence on its political process through political donations,” the statement said. “We urge the Australian side to look at China and China-Australia relations in an objective, fair and rational manner.”
