China says “unaware” of tennis player Peng Shuai’s problem


BEIJING (AP) – China’s Foreign Ministry said it was unaware of the controversy surrounding tennis professional Peng Shuai, who disappeared after accusing a former senior official of sexually assaulting her.

Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Friday that the matter was “not a diplomatic matter and I am not aware of the situation.”

Peng, 35, is a former top women’s doubles player who won titles at Wimbledon in 2013 and Roland Garros in 2014. She has also appeared in three Olympics, making her demise all the more significant with Beijing, which will host the Winter Games from February 4.

In a post deleted from social media, Peng accused former Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli of assaulting her at her home three years ago.
