UK intelligence institutions are leading a campaign – to warn British universities of foreign spy activity. In particular, they warn that Chinese students could be undercover agents.
A UK government spokesperson confirmed to RT that security agencies are indeed working with universities to protect them from spying. Although without specifying China as a particular threat.
Political scientist Joseph Cheng fears the campaign could make it harder for genuine Chinese academics to carry out their research abroad.
