China has ordered the United States to shut its Consulate General in Chengdu in retaliation for Washington’s recent decision to ask Beijing to close its consulate general in Houston, the Foreign Ministry said Friday.
In the morning, the ministry “informed the U.S. Embassy in Chengdu of its decision to withdraw its consent for the establishment and operation of the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu,” it said.
“The U.S. move seriously breached international law” and “the basic norms of international relations,” the ministry said, adding, “The measure taken legitimate and necessary response to the unjustified act by the U.S.”
