U.S. orders China to shut Houston consulate!
China has been told by America to “cease all operations and events” at the Chinese consulate, in Houston, Texas.
The shutdown of the Chinese consulate in Houston, was ordered by America:
“to protect American intellectual property and Americans’ private information”
“If China opts for a tit-for-tat consulate closure it has the following options: Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenyang and Wuhan. (The U.S. Embassy is in Beijing.)”
In response to this, the Chinese Foreign Ministry stated on its official social media, that the order by America was a:
“political provocation unilaterally launched by the US side, which seriously violates international law, basic norms governing international relations and the bilateral consular agreement between China and the US.”
Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State said:
“The United States will not tolerate the PRC’s (People Republic of China) violations of our sovereignty and intimidation of our people, just as we have not tolerated the PRC’s unfair trade practices, theft of American jobs, and other egregious behavior. President Trump insists on fairness and reciprocity in US-China relations.”
“China has never been a friend of US. It’s time to end our diplomatic relationship w them. They’ve done grave harm economically, politically and in cyber security to us and the rest of the world.”
After the action taken by America, China has vowed to strike back.
Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, Wang Wenbin, warned that America needed to immediately reverse its decision:
“Otherwise China will certainly make legitimate and necessary reactions.”
spread the word Tweets:
“I lived in Shenzhen for 6 years and closing Guangzhou would be a huge problem for so many USA citizens since the south of China has the largest American population”
