The Chinese Foreign Ministry has demanded that the US stop using falsehoods about religious freedom in China as an excuse to interfere in Beijing’s internal affairs, labelling Washington’s commission on the issue as “prejudiced.”

Speaking on Friday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian dismissed claims that religious freedom is compromised by Beijing, noting that “China is a country under the rule of law, and the Chinese government protects citizens’ freedom of religious belief in accordance with the law.” (RT)
