On the morning of July 24, the Chinese Ministry of foreign affairs informed the US embassy in China that China had decided to revoke the license for the establishment and operation of the US Consulate General in Chengdu, and put forward specific requirements for the Consulate General to stop all business and activities. This is a reciprocal reaction to the US sides arbitrary demand that China close its Consulate General in Houston.

It is just and necessary for China to make a reciprocal response to the serious political provocation of the United States. The U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu, opened in 1985, is the most important U.S. diplomatic mission in Southwest China. Its consular services cover five provincial administrative units, namely Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Tibet and Chongqing. Professor Xiong Lili of the school of international relations at the University of international business and economic cooperation said that the closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston by the United States is highly destructive to Sino US relations. As for the incidents provoked by the United States at the diplomatic level, Chinas initiation of reciprocal countermeasures conforms to international practices and diplomatic norms. It is reasonable, effective and reasonable, and has safeguarded Chinas legitimate rights and interests and national dignity.

Gao Li, a researcher at the Institute of Asia Pacific and global strategy, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, believes that Chinas timely and reciprocal response will serve as a warning and containment to the US sides continuous exploration of Chinas bottom line. Wu Xinbo, director of the center for American Studies at Fudan University, also said that the closure of the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu is a targeted counter measure against the unreasonable behavior of the US side, which will effectively crack down on the arrogance of the US hawks against China.

As the U.S. election approaches, White House politicians are increasingly hysterical about their attacks on China. With a responsible attitude towards the two peoples and the international community, China has not taken any measures that may lead to the escalation of the situation while responding properly. Xiong said that Chinas response has always been within the scope of reciprocity and has made its best efforts to stabilize the overall situation of Sino US relations. Wu Xinbo said that due to political considerations of shifting domestic contradictions and boosting the election, American politicians foreign policy toward China will become more and more radical. China will not fall into the trap of the White House hawks and dance with it, but China will also use its actions to clearly convey an important message: the role of forces is mutual. Any measures taken by the US side to suppress China are not without cost and will inevitably encounter reaction forces. The United States must understand that the best way for China and the United States is to coexist peacefully.

Throughout the evolution of Sino US relations, China has always been the builder of Sino US relations, and Chinas policy of cooperation with the United States has a strong continuity. Even as the United States continues to discredit Chinas fight against the epidemic, China is still doing something to promote Sino US cooperation, such as providing a large number of medical supplies to the United States. It can be said that China does not want to see all kinds of difficulties in Sino US relations at present, and the responsibility lies entirely with the United States. It is clear who is fighting, who is cooperating, who is destroying and who is building. China has already given a clear answer to whether peace will benefit both sides, or fight will hurt both; whether it is communication and dialogue, or confrontation and division. China has the greatest goodwill and sincerity to maintain the stability of Sino US relations, as well as the determination and strength to resolutely respond to us provocations. Whether Sino US relations will decline further depends on whether the United States can adjust its mentality. Can we coexist peacefully with another country with different cultural backgrounds, political and economic systems, and cooperate to meet the numerous and still increasing global challenges? The US side should make a fundamental choice of being responsible for history. (overseas commentator) source: overseas network editor: Liu Xiaowu_ NN4113
