BRUSSELS, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Embassy in Belgium on Sunday dismissed recent local media report about alleged Chinese espionage in Brussels as an outright fabrication.
Responding to the news report by some local media alleging that "there are about 250 Chinese spies active in Brussels," a spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Belgium said the report "is an outright fabrication without any evidence."
"China and Belgium now enjoy a steadily growing relationship and fruitful cooperation across all fields. China is committed to developing sound relations and cooperation with Belgium and all other countries on the basis of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefits," the spokesperson said in a statement.
"Some specific irresponsible remarks aimed to maliciously discredit China, mislead and deceive the public, impair and disrupt China's relations with Belgium and Europe will never succeed," said the spokesperson.
