The Great Wall of China is among the best-known landmarks in China and a top tourist attraction. Yet it has been mentioned lately by both Foreign Minister Wang Yi and US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for two very different reasons.
When Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited Washington last week, US news media were reporting on Chinese military facilities spotted in some islands and reefs in the South China Sea. The news was leaked by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
It's rare for mainstream US news media to question their own government over accusations regarding China. So rare, that when it happens, it becomes news.
