China's People's Daily defends right not to carry US envoy's op-ed

BEIJING (Reuters) - The People’s Daily has the right to decide what is published in it and to make necessary revisions, the official newspaper of China’s ruling Communist Party said on Thursday, after it refused to carry an op-ed by the U.S. ambassador.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s criticism about the matter were a “malicious attack on Chinese media”, the paper said in a statement.
