China Threatens Retaliation Over New U.S. Visa Restrictions for Chinese Reporters

China Threatens Retaliation Over New U.S. Visa Restrictions for Chinese Reporters”

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian takes a question at the daily media briefing in Beijing on April 8, 2020. Reporters would only have to apply to extend the visa if they moved to a different company or type of reporting.

"The U.S. now can not afford to restart the trade war with China if everything goes back to the starting point".

In March, China expelled American journalists from three USA newspapers, a month after the United States said it would begin to treat five Chinese state-run media entities with US operations as foreign embassies. Beijing responded by effectively expelling USA journalists working at three American newspapers in China.

Until now visas for Chinese journalists lasted for the duration of their employment in the United States.

Hawkish voices have emerged in China seeking a reevaluation of its Phase 1 trade deal with the United States, with some advisers urging fresh talks, a state-controlled tabloid said, citing sources close to the Chinese government. The latest restrictions from the USA will likely escalate tensions as the two nations battle for global influence.

"Now it is resorting to discriminatory restrictive visa measures, severely disrupting Chinese media's normal reporting in the USA and affecting bilateral people-to-people and cultural exchange, he said".

In March, the State Department then said that the five Chinese media outlets now treated as "foreign missions" would have to reduce their total number of staff from 160 to 100.

Earlier, China expelled three Wall Street Journal reporters - two Americans and an Australian - after the paper published an opinion column calling China the "real sick man of Asia".

President Donald Trump said in late April that he was confident the coronavirus may have originated in a Chinese virology lab, but declined to describe the evidence, ratcheting up tensions with Beijing over the origins of the deadly outbreak.

United States officials have accused China of a crackdown against free speech and suppressing information about the magnitude of the coronavirus pandemic.
