Central News Agency, Taiwan’s official news agency, reported that, according to Welt am Sonntag, a German newspaper, recently, as a result of an effort in a diplomatic campaign, Chinese diplomats asked German officials to praise the actions that China took to contain the coronavirus epidemic.
The German Foreign Ministry had already informed the government agencies last month not to respond to Beijing’s request.
