China’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday it firmly rejects Japan and Australia’s attempt to exaggerate the “Chinese threat” and maliciously smear China, in response to a statement issued by the two countries.

Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference that Beijing calls on all parties to stop interfering in its internal affairs and to stop sabotaging regional peace and stability.

In a joint statement earlier today, Japan and Australia expressed “grave concern” about reported human rights violations in China’s Xinjiang region, and about recent moves that they said “undermine Hong Kong’s democratic institutions.”
