Belgium said on the same day that it had refused to issue a residence permit to song Xinning, Reuters reported on October 30. Dominique ernould, a spokesman for the Ministry, confirmed the incident, but declined to comment further on privacy grounds.

Song Xinning told Reuters by email that Belgiums national security agency wrongly accused him of cooperating with Chinese intelligence agencies and that he had appealed against the ban.

According to Agence France Presse, the entry ban has been in force in 26 Schengen countries for eight years. The report also quoted the Belgian media, de Morgen and de standaard, as saying song Xinning was suspected of spying for China, but the report could not provide more details about the charges.

A spokesman for Brussels Free University confirmed that the contract with song Xinning had been terminated and that the Confucius Institute of Brussels Free University would have a new dean nominated by China.

Song Xinning said he suspected that Belgiums ban was affected by the United States, after rejecting a U.S. diplomats proposal to cooperate with the U.S. intelligence service, Hong Kongs South China Morning Post reported Wednesday.

In my memory, he said frankly, I know you are cooperating with Chinese intelligence agencies. Can you cooperate with us? Song Xinning recalled that the American diplomat once asked him for the above request, but he immediately refused it, roughly in early April, when he was waiting for work permit and visa extension.

Song Xinning said he had previously obtained a work permit, but the Belgian Immigration Bureau told him on July 30 that his visa would not be renewed because he supports Chinas intelligence activities. In addition, in September this year, song Xinning was informed by the Belgian Embassy in China that he was prohibited from entering the Schengen country.

I was warned at the meeting [with US diplomats] that if I didnt cooperate, there would be serious consequences, Song said. Obviously thats the consequences. Im ready.

Ingrid hooghe, a researcher at the Leiden Asia Centre and the cliendael Institute in the Netherlands, said European scrutiny of Chinese academia was increasing.

In her view, the case of song Xinning shows that European authorities seem to have been strongly encouraged by the United States.
