 Overseas website: close our embassy and consulate, US side is hysterical


On July 24, China took counter measures on the issue that the United States arbitrarily asked China to close its Consulate General in Houston within a limited time. On the morning of the same day, 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.

Previously, the US side not only repeatedly ignored Chinas strong protest, but threatened to take more unreasonable measures. Some politicians even fanned the flames and falsely called the Chinese Embassy and consulate in the United States as a spy center.. In response, Wang Wenbin, spokesman of the Chinese foreign ministry, said at a regular press conference on the 24th that Chinas above-mentioned measures are a legitimate and necessary response to the unreasonable acts of the US side, in line with international law, basic norms of international relations and diplomatic practices.

Why Chengdu?

As a conventional means of strategic game between great powers, there have been many precedents in the history of closing consulates and expelling diplomats. According to the BBC, on August 31, 2017, the United States asked Russia to close its Consulate in San Francisco and two offices in Washington and New York. Earlier, Moscow expelled 755 U.S. staff in Russia. The US move was seen as retaliation against Russia. The US State Department said at that time, in the spirit of reciprocity, the United States requests the Russian government to close its Consulate in San Francisco, an office in Washington, D.C., and a consular office in New York City.

Earlier, on November 29, 2011, then British Foreign Secretary Haig asked Iran to close its embassy in London, limiting all diplomats to leave the UK within 48 hours. No country can expect a functioning Embassy here if it cant get us [diplomats] to function properly on her territory, Haig said at the time Earlier, the British Embassy in Teheran was attacked by hundreds of people.

Public information shows that the five consulates in the Chinese mainland are located in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenyang, Chengdu and Wuhan. The U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu was established in 1985, which is of great strategic significance, covering Southwest China, including Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Tibet and Chongqing.

Analysts pointed out that Chinas choice of the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu as a counter target also signals that China is still committed to managing and controlling differences between China and the United States.. Among all the U.S. embassies and consulates in China, Chengdu Consulate Generals business volume and facing regions are relatively small, and the U.S. citizens and enterprises involved in the region are relatively limited.

Earlier, Singapores Lianhe Zaobao quoted Li Mingjiang, an associate professor at the laguerranan School of international relations at Nanyang Polytechnic University, as saying that Chinas response appeared to be more restrained and left room for moderate response. He said that it can be seen that Chinas policy tendency is to save Sino US relations with a self-restraint response.

The United States the thief calls to catch the thief

For the closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, the official reason given by US State Department spokesman Augustus is to protect the intellectual property rights of the United States and the private information of American citizens. However, this view is not even believed by the own people of the United States. The US media have questioned why the trump administration did not introduce these actions in detail in the official announcement if the Chinese consulate has engaged in what the US State Department called large-scale illegal espionage activities and acts of influence?

According to an article in the New York Times, the assistant secretary of state for Asia Pacific Affairs of the US State Department, Stilwelluff08 DavidR.Stilwell uff09In the interview, he claimed that the Chinese Consulate in Houston had a history of subversive activities and was the center for China to steal American scientific research achievements, but he failed to provide details to support his assertion. Its hard to refute Chinas accusation that this is more about presidential politics than intellectual property, said Daniel Russel, deputy director of the Institute for policy research at the American Association for Asia

Angus king, a senior U.S. congressional intelligence official, told CNN that although he fully supports the fight against Chinas theft of US intellectual property rights, he has not been informed of recent new intelligence about Chinas interference in US elections, theft of intellectual property rights or confrontation between the two countries.

With regard to the remarks of American hawkish politicians demonizing China, public opinion points out that this is a kind of saying that the thief shouts to catch the thief. Some foreign netizens reminded us that we should not forget that the US consulate in Hong Kong is the largest spy agency in the Far East and plays an ugly and disgraceful role in the activities of disturbing Hong Kong. There are also American netizens who falsely claim that the Chinese Consulate General in Houston is Rubio of the spy center. I know you have been busy reading the Bible, but you have not noticed that the Oval Office of the White House has been a spy Center for many years

It is almost an open secret that the United States monitors the world. Germanys Der Spiegel weekly disclosed that as early as early as 2009, the US National Security Agency launched an intelligence gathering operation code named shooting giant, aiming at Huawei, China. Right now, we have good access and so much data that we dont know how to deal with, wrote an internal document from the national security agency The document also states that the White House Intelligence coordinator and the U.S. Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) were involved in the implementation of the shooting giant operation.

According to a batch of documents released by WikiLeaks website in 2018, US embassies in many countries have purchased spy equipment. The U.S. Embassy in El Salvador issued a purchase request for 94 pieces of spy equipment, including night vision cameras that can be installed in cars, and cameras disguised in daily necessities such as pens, lighters, shirt buttons and glasses. The US embassy in Ukraine purchased tape recorders and covert radio equipment. The U.S. Consulate General in Frankfurt may be the secret Center for U.S. hackers in Europe.

On a dangerous and rapid descent

In July, China tiktok and the suppression of the US policy were significantly increased: signing the Hongkong autonomy act, canceling the special treatment of Hongkong, approving arms sales to Taiwan, declaring sanctions against Xinjiang officials, implementing visa restrictions on employees of Chinese technology companies such as HUAWEI, and sealing up the application of TikTok (International Version of jouling), issuing an official statement denying the South China Seas claim, sending dual carrier battle groups. Exercises were held in the South China Sea.

Analysts pointed out that the recent US provocation in Sino US relations has reached the stage of hysteria. On July 22, foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference that in October last year and June this year, restrictions were set on Chinese diplomats stationed in the United States for no reason, opened Chinas diplomatic pouch without permission and seized Chinas official supplies. Due to the recent wanton stigmatization and incitement of hostility by the US side, the Chinese Embassy in the United States has recently received bombs and death threats against Chinese diplomatic agencies and personnel in the United States.
