The FTU said that the United States recently asked China to close its Consulate General in Houston within 72 hours. This is a political provocation by the United States to China, which seriously violates the relevant provisions of the Sino US Consular treaty, as well as international law and basic norms of international relations. The United States deliberately destroys Sino US relations and its actions are unreasonable. The FTU strongly condemns the US actions.
The new round of the US Consulate Generals request for the closure of the US consulate general is a violation of Chinas entry into the US Consulate General. Under the principle of policy equivalence, it is reasonable for China to implement countermeasures to safeguard national sovereignty and national dignity.
The FTU believes that the operation of the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao should be stopped, and the bases that incite local political instability should be closed down, so that peace can be restored to Hong Kong. The FTU also called on the United States to stop all provocative and provocative measures, to stop further damaging Sino US relations, and to avoid self inflicted losses.
On the evening of the 23rd, Wu Qiubei, President of the Federation of trade unions, once said on Facebook that the United States unreasonably asked China to close its Consulate General in Houston within 72 hours, the rogue practice has reached the peak, and the world is dumbfounded.
On the morning of July 24, Chinas 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 U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu, and put forward specific requirements for the Consulate General to stop all business and activities, according to a news release on the website of the Ministry of foreign affairs. 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.
