BEIJING: China on Wednesday urged the United States to correct its wrong opinions about China in its 2009 National Intelligence Strategy (NIS) report issued Tuesday.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu commented when answering a question about China's reaction to the report which listed China, Russia, Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) as the four major countries challenging the US interests.
Jiang said China has always been a strong force in safeguarding and promoting world peace and stability, and China's development does not pose a threat to any other countries.
"We urge the United States to discard its Cold War mindset and prejudice, correct the mistakes in the NIS report and stop publishing wrong opinions about China which may mislead the American people and undermine the mutual trust between China and the United States," she said.
The NIS, produced by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, is also a four-year blueprint for all 16 US intelligence agencies.
