BEIJING, Sep 16, 2020, Reuters. China will not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

Australia formally named China in a court document lodged in early September as the foreign state under investigation by police in the nation’s first foreign interference investigation.

Wang told a news briefing on Wednesday that some in Australia are spreading rumours about China, and that this does not help with the development of bilateral relations.
