    A Chinese troll army flooded the internet with a torrent of vile claims that the Queen had died on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Thousands of posts from Chinese bot accounts responded to the British embassy in Beijing with messages saying ‘R.I.P the Queen’ to distract from commemorations of those killed during the protests 32 years ago.

    During a Monday appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) described President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan as having “more red flags than the Chinese embassy.” With Biden set to meet with a group of lawmakers over the package that only a small portion goes toward infrastructure, Kennedy said he hopes the Biden administration is more open and truthful about their proposal. He urged his colleagues to press Biden about the plan. Partial transcript as follows: KENNEDY: Look, President Biden has invited some of my colleagues today to visit the White House to talk about it, and I think that’s a great thing. And here’s what I hope my colleagues tell President Biden: I hope they say, “Look, Mr. President, we appreciate the invitation to come over. The White House cookies are great. We’ve got some questions though, because this thing you’ve proposed has more red flags than the Chinese embassy.” Number one: “Show us a list of the projects. We can keep debating what kind of bill this is, but show us a list of...
    The Chinese Embassy in Ireland sent out a bizarre tweet Wednesday proclaiming “China is not a lamb” in an apparent reference to an Aesop fable. “Who is the wolf? Some people accused China for [sic] so-called ‘wolf warrior diplomacy,'” the tweet said. The term”Wolf warrior diplomacy” refers to a recent trend among Chinese diplomats to take to social media to aggressively refute any criticism of China or the Chinese Communist Party, according to CNN. (RELATED: REPORT: Twitter Locks China’s US Embassy Out Of Twitter After Post Touting Birth Rate Decline Among Uighurs) “In his well-known fable, Aesop described how the Wolf accused the Lamb of committing offences.” the tweet continued. “The wolf is the wolf, not the lamb.

    The Chinese embassy in Tokyo is also sending tweets in harsh words as the Chinese government uses Twitter to create a diplomatic war. This is a reaction to the problem of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, which the Chinese side is particularly nervous about. The embassy introduces account writing, which only posts tweets in line with the Chinese claim, and with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in mind, “Some politicians in the United States have a habit of somehow ignoring science. There it is.” Chinese Embassy in Tokyo tweets seem to bear in mind former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo The director of the magazine, Mr. Pompeo said, “There are countless lies.” Pompeo was convicted in January 2021 of genocide and crimes against humanity by the Chinese government on charges of persecuting ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Chinese Foreign Ministry Director Hua Suning told a news conference “There are countless lies that Pompeo has accumulated over the last few years. This case is one of...
    Twitter closed the account of the Chinese embassy in Washington due to a tweet according to which Uighur women in Xinjiang province are emancipated and are no longer “baby-making machines.” The government of Donald Trump, shortly before the end of his term, declared that Chinese policies towards minorities such as the Uyghurs in Xinjiang constitute “crimes against humanity” and “genocide.” One of the reasons for that decision was the forced birth control policies imposed by the Chinese authorities on Uyghurs, a matter that The Associated Press detailed in a lengthy report last year. Another reason – the forced labor to which Uighurs are subjected – was also the subject of a report by The Associated Press on how this policy results in the export of various products to the United States such as computers and cameras. Twitter stated that the January 7 tweet violated its ban on messages dehumanizing groups of people. The social network prohibits “any message that dehumanizes a group of people based on their religion, caste, age, disability, illness, national origin, race or ethnicity.”...
    The Chinese embassy in Washington has claimed its Twitter account was hacked after it appeared to retweet Donald Trump's unfounded claims of election fraud.  Eagle-eyed Twitter users noticed on Wednesday that the official Chinese account had shared the tweet, in which Trump claimed that Democrats 'cheated' in the election - weeks after Beijing officially acknowledged Joe Biden's victory.   But the embassy denied involvement late last night, saying that 'the Chinese embassy Twitter account was hacked this afternoon and we condemn such an act'.  'For clarification, the embassy didn't do any retweeting on December 9', Beijing's diplomatic mission said.   President Trump repeated his unfounded claims of election fraud on Wednesday Twitter users were surprised when the Chinese embassy appeared to retweet Trump's claims  But China insisted late last night that it had been hacked and had not retweeted anything  Like many of Trump's post-election ramblings, Trump's original tweet was marked with a warning that 'this claim about election fraud is disputed'.   China was conspicuously cautious in acknowledging Trump's election defeat even after Joe Biden was widely declared as...
    There are many hardships facing Indian soldiers posted to the icy Himalayan hilltops along the disputed border with China. But no one expected this.  One moment, they felt healthy and alert, eyes peeled for signs of their aggressive neighbour’s troops. Then, within less than a minute, they began to vomit almost simultaneously, as if struck down by a violent stomach bug. The soldiers’ bodies grew weak, with some barely able to stand, and they fled, leaving the hilltops open for units of Chinese soldiers to move in and occupy. Not a shot had been fired. This mysterious encounter in August had remained almost completely unknown until last week when – in a lecture to students at Renmin University in Beijing – Chinese professor Jin Canrong disclosed not only the event itself, but the secret weapon responsible. Conflict zone: Indian troops being searched by Chinese soldiers at the border in the Himalayan hilltops. The fighting led to fears of increased tensions between the two countries According to Prof Jin, the Chinese had used a microwave weapon against the Indians. It...

    CHENGDU, China – In the more than 40 years since China and the United States established formal diplomatic relations, accusations have been crossed, tensions have arisen and remitted, and the two sides have been dangerously close to direct confrontation. However, the forced closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston and the Chinese retaliation for ordering the closure of the Chengdu US consulate mark a new low in relations between the world’s two largest economies, which is not easy to resolve. The mistrust and rancor surrounding disputes over alleged theft of technology, national security, human rights, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China Sea are now the main drivers of a relationship that for years isolated these issues to prevent hamper trade ties and cooperation on issues like North Korea’s nuclear program and conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. Looking ahead, prospects for reconciliation seem slim even if the United States elects another government in November. Chinese authorities seized control of the former U.S. consulate in the southwestern city of Chengdu on Monday after ordering its closure in retaliation...

    BEIJING (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — After an overnight fire, the United States government has ordered China to close its consulate in Houston “to protect American intellectual property and American’s private information.” China strongly condemned the move, the latest in a series of steps by the Trump administration as it ratchets up pressure on the world’s second-largest economy over trade, technology, human rights and security. Firefighters responded to reports of a fire and papers being burned in the courtyard of the Consulate General of China, along Montrose Boulevard, in Houston’s Midtown area. The Houston Chronicle is reporting that police were told occupants at the embassy had been given until 4 p.m. Friday to leave the property. Houston police said in a tweet that officers responded to “a meet the firefighter” call at the Consulate building and that smoke was observed in an outdoor area, but that officers were not allowed to enter the building. The U.S., in a brief statement, did not provide any details on why the consulate in Texas was targeted. “The United States will not tolerate (China’s) violations of our...

"Weibo received an application from the Indian embassy in China, which said: '(I) hope to have the official Weibo account of Prime Minister Narendra Modi removed from the platform,'" it said.
