BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s foreign ministry said on Thursday that Beijing does not interfere in other countries’ internal affairs, after U.S. President Donald Trump accused it of seeking to meddle in the Nov. 6 U.S. congressional elections.

The international community is clear which country interferes most in other countries’ affairs, ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular briefing in Beijing.

Geng also urged the United States to stop doing things that damaged relations with China.

Trump on Wednesday told a U.N. Security Council meeting that Beijing was interfering because they did not want his Republican Party to do well, given the party’s pugnacious stance on trade.
