China considers unjustified demands of the United States to its diplomats

Beijing: China rejected today and described as unjustified the new requirements that the United States (USA) imposed on its diplomatic mission, which adds tension to the bilateral ties just when they are going through the most challenging stage since their establishment, Prensa Latina publishes.

In an official statement, the Asian nation warned that the White House violates the Vienna conventions on diplomatic and consular relations with the announcement of restrictions and obstacles to the work of the Beijing representation on North American soil.

According to the complaint, the measures even go against the values of openness and freedom proclaimed by the US government.

“We urge the US to correct its error, revoke this decision and provide support and facilities to Chinese diplomatic and consular personnel to carry out their functions”, the note released through its embassy in Washington, added.

The day before, the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, announced the requirement of authorization for Chinese officials if they wish to visit university campuses and meet with local leaders.

Also from now on they must seek the approval of the White House before holding cultural events with more than 50 people in places outside their headquarters and identify all accounts on social networks as belonging to the Government of the Asian giant.

According to Pompeo, these measures were taken under the argument of reciprocity in bilateral relations.
However, it is chained to a saga of hostilities that push both powers into such dangerous terrain that it gives rise to assertions about the arrival of another Cold War.

The counterpoint in recent months covers sensitive issues such as the situation in Xinjiang, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet and the South Sea, restrictions on the Chinese press, more obstacles to the Huawei company, the closure of consulates and the forced sale of the Tik Tok application.

As analysts from around the world predicted, the Washington-Beijing frictions heightened as the November elections in the United States approach, as President Donald Trump made the issue of China the main point of the campaign for his re-election.
