USA blasts China's demands to airlines

USA blasts China's demands to airlines”

The White House released a blistering statement attacking China's government for a recent demand that US and other airlines change the way they refer to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau in promotional materials.

The White House has labelled China's efforts to force foreign airlines to change how they refer to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau as "Orwellian nonsense".

Meanwhile, Hong Kong, a British colony until 1997, and Macau, a Portuguese colony until 1999, are now "special administrative regions" of China.

"The United States strongly objects to China's attempts to compel private firms to use specific language of a political nature in their publicly available content", she said.

Amid a growing fight over US-China trade, the White House said in a statement on Saturday that the Chinese Civil Aviation Administration sent a letter to 36 foreign air carriers, including a number of US carriers, demanding changes.

The harshly worded statement comes as a high-level trade delegation led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin returned from negotiations in China.

A spokesman for Airlines for America, a trade group representing United Airlines, American Airlines and other major carriers, said the group was "continuing to work with U.S. government officials as we determine next steps".

As of now, Tibet is gone from Delta's list of "Country/Region" on the website, but Taiwan remains as a separate category from China.

Sanders said President Donald Trump was against political correctness in the us, and that the president would thus "stand up for Americans resisting efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to impose Chinese political correctness on American companies and citizens".

Also on Saturday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with a member of the Communist Party leadership.

China and the United States should "properly settle disputes and sensitive issues", keep up communication and coordination on major worldwide and regional issues and "push bilateral relations forward along the right track", Yang said.

The spat comes in the wake of a separate row that saw the United States heavily criticising China over accusations they blasted American pilots with lasers in a sinister campaign of harassment.

Trump said Friday on Twitter that he'd be receiving a briefing on Saturday about the visit. "We're going to have to rework China because that's been a one-way street for decades", Trump said at an event in Cleveland on Saturday.

The demands were presented to Beijing before the start of talks between Trump officials and their Chinese counterparts to try to avert a damaging trade war between the world's two largest economies.

"China's internal internet repression is world-famous, " Sanders said in the statement.
