Pompeo branded ‘lunatic’ after Tiananmen remarks

China has branded Mike Pompeo’s statement about the brutal suppression of pro-democracy protests in 1989 as “lunatic ravings and babbling nonsense.”

The United States Secretary of State came in for a withering attack on Tuesday after he called on Beijing to release prisoners fighting for human rights on the 30th anniversary of the bloody Tiananmen Square crackdown.

“[His remarks are] malicious attacks [on] China’s political system, denigrates the state of China’s human rights and religious affairs, wantonly criticizes China’s Xinjiang policy and severely interferes in China’s domestic affairs,” Geng Shuang, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said in a regular media briefing.

“These lunatic ravings and babbling nonsense will only end up in the trash can of history,” Geng added.
