China Slams Hillary Clinton Over Africa Comments


BEIJING — Chinese state media are taking a swipe at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, saying she is either ignorant of the facts in Africa or ignoring them.

Clinton is on trip to Africa seen as boosting U.S. relations there and questioning China’s motives for its investments on the continent.

The acerbic commentary Friday from Xinhua News Agency went on to say that Clinton’s “implication that China has been extracting Africa’s wealth for itself is utterly wide of the truth.”

China has poured billions into Africa in recent years, emerging as the continent’s main trading partner and a major source of investment for infrastructure. But its presence has also sparked concerns about labor abuses and corruption.
