The Asian nation condemned the U.S. policy towards President Nicolas Maduro's administration.
China Wednesday condemned the recent rifle attack at the Cuban embassy in the United States, a mercenary forces' invasion plan of Venezuela, and all the interventionist maneuvers against the sovereignty of any country.
China's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that her government firmly opposes any violent action perpetrated against official representations.
She urged Washington to take the necessary measures to protect the Cuban embassy from any damage, as provided for in the 1961 Vienna Convention.
In this way, China joined other nations in the world that repudiated the shooting launched last Thursday against the Cuban embassy in the U.S. capital. The Cuban mission officials suffered no damage, but there were material deteriorations in the building as a result of the attack.
La #CIA lo sabía, porqué no informó. Jack Murphy, un veterano de las fuerzas especiales de EEUU, afirma que la CIA intentó persuadir a los mercenarios estadounidenses Luke Denman y Aarón Barry para que no participarán en el complot para derrocar al gobierno de #Venezuela. pic.twitter.com/KIvq3JlloN
"If the CIA knew about it, why didn't it report? The U.S. special forces veteran Jack Murphy claims the CIA attempted to persuade U.S. mercenaries Luke Denman and Aaron Barry not to participate in the plot to overthrow the Venezuelan government."
Hua also deplored the attempted maritime invasion of Venezuela by mercenary forces seeking to carry out a coup against President Nicolas Maduro.
She stressed the Chinese government's rejection of the violation of the sovereignty of the South American country by any means or excuse.
The diplomat called for prioritizing the well-being of the Bolivarian people and promoting the peaceful resolution of the political impasse in Venezuela.
China has been in favor of respecting the United Nations Charter and the basic norms governing international relations in the face of the U.S. policy of hostility towards the Maduro administration.
The Asian nation recently criticized Washington for applying more extraterritorial sanctions to Venezuela, Cuba, and Iran to the detriment of the public health of the people just as the COVID-19 pandemic spreads.
