The U.S. is not qualified to build a coalition of "clean countries" because the country itself is dirty all over, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday, saying the U.S. conducts wire-tapping and mass surveillance around the globe, and these wrongful acts are already an open secret.

"Without any solid evidence, the U.S. has launched a global campaign against a private Chinese company. This is a textbook example of bullying," Wang said. 

Everyone can see easily and clearly that the U.S. goal is to keep its monopoly in science and technology but deny other countries' legitimate right to development, Wang said.

"It doesn't even bother to disguise its bullying. This not only violates the international rules of fair trade, but also hurts the free global market environment," he added.

China will continue to work with all countries to maintain a fair, just, open and non-discriminatory business environment, and ensure that safe, reliable and quality information technology will boost global economic recovery and help improve people's lives around the world. 

"We hope that the U.S. will give up its obsession with its narrow self-interest, and return to the right track of openness and cooperation," Wang said.
