China’s embassy in Singapore slams ‘lies’ after US report of influence operations

“China’s embassy in Singapore has slammed a report by a US-based scholar which alleged that Beijing was imposing its Chinese identity on the city state through influence operations.

Such operations were conducted through business associations, clan associations, and grass roots organisations, said the report, published by US think tank Jamestown Foundation on July 16.

“[The Communist Party of China’s] propaganda efforts in Singapore that flow through these organisations aim to promote the narrative of a ‘greater China’ … one that includes all people of Chinese descent, irrespective of nationality,” said the analysis written by Russell Hsiao, the executive director of Global Taiwan Institute”.
