'Prejudice, Arrogance': Beijing Slams Pompeo's Comments on Tiananmen Anniversary

The Chinese embassy in the United States has expressed "strong dissatisfaction" with remarks from the US Department of State on the 30th anniversary of student-led protests in Tiananmen Square, Reuters reported.

The Chinese embassy has said in a statement, cited by Reuters, that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's comments on the anniversary were made "out of prejudice and arrogance" and interfered with China's internal affairs.

On 4 June 1989, a student-led protest being held in Beijing's Tiananmen Square was dispersed by the army, leaving over 200 dead and 7,000 injured, according to official estimates. Human rights activists have claimed the death toll is in the thousands.
