 How about the war damage ratio between China and the United States in the cross border consulates? Scholars raise the significance of strategic security


American Consulate General in Chengdu

According to public information, the Chinese Consulate General in Houston was established in 1979, which is the first Chinese Consulate General to be established in the United States. Its jurisdiction areas are eight states and one federal territory in the southeast of the United States: Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Puerto Rico. The U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu was established in 1985, covering Southwest China, including Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Tibet and Chongqing.

Li Haidong, a professor at the Institute of international relations at the Foreign Affairs College, told the global times that the business of the Chinese Consulate in Houston is mainly to serve the large number of Chinese and overseas Chinese who have emigrated to Texas. In other business, it is far from comparable with those in New York and San Francisco. At the moment when the global epidemic is not over, the demand for visa and other consuls will be significantly lower than before.

As for the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu, Li Haidong believes that, considering its business scope, although its jurisdiction is limited, it involves Chinas Tibet and southwest ethnic minority areas, which has a strong strategic security nature. In recent years, many of the so-called information materials about Tibet and the southwest ethnic minority areas that distort the truth of Chinas governance have been collected by the US consulate in Chengdu through its channels. In the future, as pompeio said in his speech at the Nixon Memorial Hall this morning, the United States will increase its efforts to promote the Color Revolution in China, and it will be easier for the United States to create trouble for China in the region.

An expert on Sino US relations, who did not want to be named, also told the global times that in recent years, the United States has long used its Consulate in Chengdu to interfere in Chinas internal affairs in Tibet and to infiltrate, which has had a negative impact on the stability of Chinas Tibet region.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular Foreign Ministry press conference on the 24th that some personnel of the US Consulate General in Chengdu engage in activities inconsistent with their identities, interfere in Chinas internal affairs and damage Chinas security interests. China has made representations on this issue many times, and the US side is aware of this.

One similarity between the two consulates is that there are many high-tech enterprises in the areas under their jurisdiction. There are many aerospace and pharmaceutical enterprises, universities and high-tech enterprises around Houston. NASAs mission control headquarters, Lyndon Johnson Space Center, is located in Texas, where Houston is located. In Sichuan, there are many military enterprises. Chinas nuclear weapons research institute, China Institute of nuclear power research and design, known as the cradle of Chinas nuclear power engineering, and Xichang Satellite Launch Center are all located in the province.

In addition, Sichuan Province and Texas have more private enterprises. However, experts believe that the closure of the Consulate does not mean that the enterprises of the other side will not be able to operate normally in the region, nor does it mean that Sino US economic and trade exchanges in the region will be suspended. However, some enterprises and personnel will be more troublesome in terms of procedures.

For whose war damage is greater, netizens clearly think there are many soft indicators. After Chinas reciprocal counter-measures, many Chinese Netizens feel very sorry for the US Consular Staff, because they will bid farewell to Chengdus hot pot or Sichuan cuisine. If you close my consulate, Ill cut you off the way to eat delicious food in Chengdu, precision attack, some netizens jokingly said. Some netizens also said it was a great loss to say goodbye to the lovely panda. What kind of soft war damage will Chinese face in Houston? Some netizens said that there would be a lot of economic losses in the large number of monthly centers in Texas.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs: staff members of the US Consulate General in Chengdu engage in activities inconsistent with their identities

Wang Wenbin said that on July 21, the United States unilaterally provoked the incident and suddenly asked China to close its Consulate General in Houston, which seriously violated international law, basic norms of international relations and relevant provisions of Sino US Consular treaties, and seriously damaged Sino US relations. Chinas above-mentioned measures are a legitimate and necessary response to the unreasonable acts of the US side, in line with international law and basic norms of international relations, and in line with diplomatic practices.

The current situation between China and the United States is something that China does not want to see, and the responsibility lies entirely with the United States. We once again urge the US side to immediately withdraw the relevant wrong decision and create the necessary conditions for the return of bilateral relations to normal.

Some staff of the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu engage in activities inconsistent with their identities, interfere in Chinas internal affairs and damage Chinas security interests. China has repeatedly made representations on this issue, and the US side is aware of this. As for the specific issues mentioned, China has put forward specific requirements for the US Consulate General in Chengdu to stop all its business and activities. Diplomacy is equal.
