SYDNEY, Dec. 6 (People’s Daily Online)--On Dec. 6, the spokesperson of the Chinese embassy in Australia said Australian media reports about the so-called Chinese influence and infiltration in Australia “reflected a typical anti-China hysteria and paranoid” and the Australian side needed to take a more “objective” view of the two countries’ relationship.

The spokesperson said some Australian media had repeatedly fabricated news stories, which were made up out of thin air and filled with cold war mentality and ideological bias. The relevant reports not only made unjustifiable accusations against the Chinese government, but also unscrupulously vilified the Chinese students as well as the Chinese community in Australia with racial prejudice, which in turn has tarnished Australia's reputation as a multicultural society.

“Some Australian politicians and government officials also made irresponsible remarks to the detriment of political mutual trust between China and Australia. We categorically reject these allegations,” the spokesperson said.

“China has been committed 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, which is one of the main principles of Chinese foreign policy.”

“China has no intention to interfere in Australia's internal affairs or exert influence on its political process through political donations. The Australian side is urged to look at China and China-Australia relations in an objective, fair and rational manner,” the spokesperson added.
