Sun Wenguan was interviewed by phone on August 1. The discussion covered China’s policy in Africa. It was noted that Beijing aims at helping countries of the region a huge amount of funds, while the standard of living of the Chinese population leaves much to be desired. In the middle of the conversation the Professor said that it broke the local police and asked to stop the interview.
