China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson said that the tenure of outgoing US Secretary of State has brought “a lot of fun,” but made a dent in America’s prestige and credibility on the world stage.

Iran press/ Asia: China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying was asked at a daily press briefing on Wednesday whether Mike Pompeo will be missed in China.

“Of course,” Hua said in English. She then switched back to Mandarin: “He brought us a lot of fun. We were watching a big show every day.”

"But I think he has caused damage to himself, his country’s image, and the credibility of the United States. It will be hard to repair. I think it is very sad for the American people," she added.

Hua accused Pompeo of spreading “lies” during his time in office, saying that “history will give him a fair trial.”

Chinese diplomats often sparred with Pompeo and were scathing in their criticism, calling him “Mr. Liar,” among other things.
