Chinese authorities take over the US Consulate General in Chengdu, AP reported
The Chinese Ministry of foreign affairs has previously stressed that on July 21, the US side unilaterally provoked an incident and suddenly demanded that China 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.
On social media twitter, the Associated Press reported that the US State Department said it was disappointed. In the view of many netizens, Chinas practice is only a response to the US practice of closing the Chinese consulate.
