China FM: Kishida 'blatantly' ignores facts

Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida (pictured center) "blatantly" ignored the facts in an attempt to "smear" China, Beijing's Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin claimed on Thursday.

During a daily press conference, Wang blasted remarks on China which Kishida made during the 16th East Asia Summit, adding that Beijing has "lodged solemn representations."

The prime minister's comments on the issues of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Xinjiang are "not constructive to" the ties between Tokyo and Beijing, and could hinder "regional peace and stability," Wang underlined.
