China Critisized USA

Chinese officials accused the United States for criticising China's oil investments in Africa

Chinese officials accused the United States for criticising China's oil investments in Africa, and insisted the country had a positive role to play in the continent's development.

China's booming energy demand and Africa's bountiful oil resources are mutually beneficial, the officials said, ahead of a China-Africa forum to be held in Beijing next month.
