US Consulate Shuttered as China Retaliates Over Spying Accusations
By Kyodo News 27 July 2020
The United States has complied with a request to shut a consulate general in China, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Monday, following an escalation of tensions over Beijing’s alleged spying activities that led Washington to order the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston.
In retaliation to the US order, which was issued last Tuesday, the Chinese government requested the United States shut its equivalent liaison office in the southwestern city of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province.
