China blames US of "playing double standards" in name of press freedom

(MENAFN)China blamed the US of "playing double standards" in the name of press freedom.

A news conference in Beijing quoted China's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian as saying that "The US is just using press freedom as a cover to advance its real agenda of suppressing China. It is only trying to justify its open double standard, hegemony and bullying with a high-sounding pretext."

Zhao further declared that "With regard to the US, it is not just a matter of 'can do better' on journalists and press freedom, but an urgent need to redress mistakes and seek improvement. The US should reflect upon itself and stop wanton attacks on China. One can only earn respect from others with proper self-conduct."
