Beijing urges US to scrap 'China Initiative'

Beijing strongly urges the United States to abandon its "China Initiative," aimed at finding Chinese spies in the US universities, the Asian country's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian (pictured) noted on Tuesday.

During a daily press conference, he accused the US of wanting to "suppress China," and encouraging "racial discrimination."

Earlier this week, a group of 177 Stanford faculty members made public a letter to the US Justice Department, in which the Stanford staffers asked the DoJ to scrap the initiative launched in 2018.
