China attacks US demands on education programmesChina on Friday accused the United States of trying to “demonize and stigmatize” relations between the two countries, following the Trump administration’s designation of Chinese-funded language and culture programs to the United States as foreign missions of the Chinese Communist Party.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said branches of the Confucius Institute operating in American schools and colleges are “a bridge and a link to help people around the world learn Chinese, understand China and strengthen educational and cultural exchanges and cooperation between China and other countries. . ”

Mr. Zhao said the charges against the educational institutes were baseless and were motivated by “ideological prejudices and personal interests.”

The designation requires the Washington-based Confucius Institute US Center to submit reports to the US government on its funding, staff, program, and other activities in the United States.

It is the latest in a string of Trump administration rulings against China as tensions between the two countries rise over trade, technology, human rights and the coronavirus, which was first reported in Wuhan, China.
