 The United States listed six Chinese media agencies in the United States as foreign missions


Chinas Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on June 23 that this is another example of the US sides naked political suppression of Chinese media, which will further seriously interfere with the normal reporting activities of Chinese media in the United States, and further expose the hypocrisy of the so-called freedom of the press and speech advocated by the United States.

Zhao Lijian stressed that China strongly urges the US side to abandon cold war thinking and ideological prejudice and immediately stop and correct this wrong practice of harming others and not benefiting itself, otherwise China will have to make necessary and proper response.

Previously, it was reported that China took reciprocal countermeasures against the US sides crackdown on Chinese media

Zhao Lijian said at a regular press conference that day that in recent years, the U.S. government has set unreasonable restrictions on the normal news reporting activities of Chinese media organizations and personnel in the United States, and has continuously upgraded its discrimination against and political repression of Chinese media. On February 18, 2020, the U.S. side listed five Chinese media agencies in the United States, namely, Xinhua news agency, China Dailys U.S. distribution company, China International Television Station (cgtn), China International Radio Station (CRI), and the U.S. general agent of the overseas edition of peoples daily (Haitian development Co., Ltd.), as foreign missions. On March 18, the Chinese side has asked the voice of America, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the time magazine and the Washington Post, to report to the Information Department of the Ministry of foreign affairs written materials on all staff, financial, operational and real estate information they own in China.

Zhao Lijian said that on June 22, the United States once again announced that it would increase the management of four Chinese media, namely CCTV peoples daily, global times and China News Agency as foreign missions.. As a counter measure to the above actions of the US side, China announced that it would require AP, UPI, CBS and NPR to declare to China within 7 days from now the written materials of all staff, finance, operation and real estate information owned in China.

It needs to be pointed out that the above-mentioned measures of the Chinese side are completely necessary reciprocal countermeasures against the US sides unreasonable suppression of Chinese media agencies in the United States, and are completely self-defense. Based on Cold War thinking and ideological prejudice, the US side has seriously damaged the reputation and image of Chinese media, seriously affected the normal operation of Chinese media in the United States, seriously interfered with the normal people to people exchanges between China and the United States, and exposed the hypocrisy of its self proclaimed so-called press freedom. Zhao Lijian said that China urges the US side to immediately change its course, correct its mistakes and stop its political repression and unreasonable restrictions on the Chinese media.
