Ofcom waged a political crackdown on CGTN's broadcasting in the UK based on ideological bias and politicized technical issues, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Thursday.

CGTN is an international professional media organization, Hua said, adding that CGTN has been strictly abiding by UK laws and regulations and carrying out news reporting under the principle of objectivity, fairness, truthfulness and accuracy.

China urges Britain to correct mistakes and immediately stop political manipulation, and China reserves the right to take necessary countermeasures, Hua added.
