Chinese Foreign Minister, in a public phone call with his Russian counterpart, said that the US has lost its mind.

Iran Press/Asia: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi derided President Trump’s administration in an unusually public phone call with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, intensifying a trend of acrimonious exchanges between Washington and Beijing.

“The U.S. ... has lost its mind, morals, and credibility,” the Chinese envoy said, according to a transcript of the call released by the Foreign Ministry as reported by the South China Morning Post.

China published the barbs just days after the foreign minister called for a dialogue between US and Chinese diplomats. 

The transcript shows Wang arguing that the US-China competition is a sign of Trump’s hostility to international institutions (a common refrain for Beijing, which seeks to exploit disagreements between the United States and other Western allies), but it also calls attention to the Sino-Russia coordination that might trouble Western European nations.

“China will never let a small group of anti-China forces take the lead but will firmly defend its reasonable interests and dignity,” he told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
