“The admission simply shows that interfering in other countries’ internal affairs and overthrowing their governments have become the standard practice of the US government”


Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on revelations that emerged from a CNN interview that former National Security Advisor John Bolton was involved in the planning of foreign coups d’etat. Bolton made the admission in trying to put the January 6 attack on Congress in context. Wang described the news as “no surprise – this is very much part of the US rule book”.
