US-China Tensions Mount As China Closes US Consulate in Chengdu

The US-China relations are set to nosedive quickly again as the US consulate in Chengdu has been closed following the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston by the Trump Administration.

A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said US diplomats in China had already been notified on Friday morning of the decision by China where Beijing was revoked the license for the Chengdu consulate in China’s southwest.

The consulate has also been ordered to “stop all business and activities.”

The statement also added that the US had “unilaterally provoked the incident” by ordering the closure of the Houston office, an action China believes goes against international law and foreign relations

“The current situation between China and the United States is something China does not want to see, and the responsibility rests entirely with the United States,” the foreign ministry said. “We once again urge the US to immediately revoke the erroneous decision to create necessary conditions for the return of bilateral relations to normal.”

Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the foreign ministry, said the order was

“a legitimate and necessary response to the unilateral provocative move by the US to demand the closure of China’s Consulate General in Houston.”
