China says what US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claims about its role in the Arctic rests on “ulterior motives” that lead Washington to contradict the facts. Speaking on the eve of a meeting of the eight members of the Arctic Council, Pompeo said in northern Finland on Monday that the US plans to beef up its Arctic presence to keep Russia’s and China’s “aggressive behavior” in check in the region. On Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular press briefing in Beijing that the remarks were “a misrepresentation of the facts that has ulterior motives.” China will “not intervene” in matters between Arctic countries, but it will also “not be absent” from global issues on the Arctic, he added.
