394076 14.05.2009 Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu dismissed the US espionage allegations as ungrounded, saying Thursday in Beijing that they undermine relations of trust between the two countries. Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel James Wilbur Fonden was charged last Wednesday by the US Department of Justice with conspiring to provide classified information to an agent connected with the Chinese People's Republic. "It is not for the first time that we hear accusations of spying...they are fabricated," the spokesman said at a regular briefing when commenting on reports about the former US Air Force official having been indicted on espionage in favor of China. "We are calling upon the United States to stop unfounded allegations against China and try to promote friendship and trust between our nations."
