In China, contacts are aimed at future employees of the presidential administration of Joe Biden.
It is noted that U.S. counterintelligence officers are working with them to raise awareness. This is reported by Reuters.
According to the director of the U.S. National Center for Counterintelligence and Security William Evanina, Beijing is looking for opportunities to influence the future presidential administration of the United States.
“We are very interested in the new administration to understand what influence is, what it looks like, what it tastes like, what it feels like,” Evanina said.
In this regard, the director emphasized the importance of Biden’s open access to daily secret intelligence that comes into the White House.
