China hits back at European Union’s claim it has 250 spies working in Brussels

China has dismissed as “groundless” claims made by the European Union that it has hundreds of spies working in Brussels, the bloc’s de facto capital. The Chinese mission to the EU issued a statement on Sunday in response to a report published a day earlier on the website of German television company Welt that said EU diplomats and military officials had been warned of “about 250 Chinese and 200 Russian spies” operating in the Belgian city. The report cited information from the European External Action Service (EEAS), the EU’s diplomatic arm.
