By Kyodo News 23 July 2020
BEIJING—China said Wednesday that it has been ordered by the United States to close its consulate general in Houston, in a move that could inflame already strained tensions between the world’s two major powers, which have been in conflict over economic and security matters.
“On July 21, the US abruptly demanded that China’s consulate general in Houston cease all operations and events,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told reporters, criticizing Washington for “seriously” violating international law.
