Objectivity 4.3 | Credibility 4.0 | Relevance 4.5

On Thursday Wang Wenbin, a spokesman for China’s ministry of foreign affairs accused NATO of demanding other countries abide by basic norms while it has “wantonly waged wars and dropped bombs in sovereign states, killing and displacing innocent civilians.”  Wenbin continued and said, “NATO has messed up Europe. Is it now trying to mess up the Asia-Pacific and even the world?”  The remarks came after UK’s foreign secretary, Liz Truss told China it should play by the rules.
