China's ambassador to Ukraine Du Wei said that US National Security Adviser John Bolton's statement about China having stolen US military technology was slanderous, ONA reports citing Sputnik.
Bolton said earlier that the US is worried about losing military technology to China. According to him, fifth-generation Chinese fighters look a lot like the F-35, because "they basically stole it".
Earlier this month, Bolton claimed that Russia had "stolen" US technology related to the development of hypersonic weapons. The Russian Foreign Ministry slammed his remarks and suggested that Washington had copied countless technologies from different countries around the world.
