Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Wang Wenbin said in a press conference that was posted to the China Daily YouTube channel on June 21, 2022 that the Five Eyes Alliance countries have a history of instigating color revolutions throughout the world to advance their goals. He also said that these countries are currently supporting anti-Chinese elements, working to "infiltrate" the Chinese mainland, and spreading false information about China.
Wang Wenbin: "We have noted relevant reports and the countries concerned must give explanations. When it comes to political infiltration, countries such as the U.S. and the U.K have always done well. In the name of freedom and democracy, the U.S. has instigated 'color revolutions' in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, Latin American and other places to create regional turmoil, in order to achieve its own geopolitical goals. The American writer Willian Blum pointed out in his book America's Deadliest Export: Democracy that since the end of World War II, the U.S. has tried to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments and grossly interfered in the elections of at least 30 countries. Politicians in the U.S., the U.K, and other countries have frequently colluded with [elements] that oppose China, as well as disorderly elements in Hong Kong.
"The U.S. has assembled the 'Five Eyes Alliance' countries to make irresponsible remarks on Hong Kong affairs through joint statements and other means. The National Endowment for Democracy has acted as a 'pawn' or 'white gloves' for the U.S. government, repeatedly interfering in the Hong Kong's political agenda in an attempt to turn Hong Kong into a bridgehead for subversive infiltration of the Chinese mainland. These facts are well known to the world. The U.S. and the U.K have exposed their deep-rooted Cold War mentality and ideological bias by infiltrating and interfering in China and at the same time attacking China.
"In the name of preventing infiltration, the countries concerned have carried out political persecution of people who have been conducting normal exchanges and cooperation with China, creating a chilling effect to revive McCarthyism, which not only seriously damages the bilateral relations between these countries and China, but also promotes racial discrimination and hatred in their own countries.
"The so-called 'China Action Plan' initiated by the U.S. and the so-called 'Chinese Research Group' set up by some anti-China parliamentarians in the U.K. are typical examples of this regard. What I would also like to ask is that the media recently exposed that Taiwan's Tsai Ing-Wen authorities have spent lots of money to buy opportunities to speak with the U.S. leaders and interact with high-level U.S. officials. I wonder what these actions are in the eyes of the Five Eyes Alliance. We urge relevant countries to stop political infiltration, stop spreading false information about China, and stop using all means to contain and suppress China."
