China Takes Countermeasures Against US Suppression of Chinese Media Organizations in the United States

 In recent years, the U.S. government has unreasonably restricted the normal news reporting activities of Chinese media agencies and personnel in the United States, making it unreasonably difficult, and has escalated discrimination and political suppression against the Chinese media, especially in December 2018. Registered as a "foreign agent", and listed five Chinese media agencies in the United States as "foreign missions" in February 2020, and then adopted a number of restrictions on the above five media agencies in the United States, disguising a large number of Chinese media in disguise reporter. China immediately made solemn representations to the US regarding its wrongdoing, expressed its firm opposition and strong condemnation, and stressed that it reserves the right to respond and take measures.

  China announces that from today:

  First, the five Chinese media agencies in the United States are listed as "foreign missions" against the United States. The Chinese counterparts have called for "Voice of America", "New York Times", "Wall Street Journal", "Washington Post", and "Time" 》 The five US media offices in China report to China all written materials such as staff, finances, operations, and real estate information in China.

  Second, in response to the significant reduction in the United States and the actual deportation of employees of Chinese media agencies in the United States, China requires American journalists whose New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post expiry of their press passes before the end of the year to report within four days from today. The Department of Information of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs declares the list and returns the press card within 10 days. In the future, it is not allowed to continue to work as a journalist in the People's Republic of China, including Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions.

  Third, in view of the U.S.'s discriminatory restrictions on visas, administrative review, and interviews of Chinese journalists, China will take reciprocal measures against U.S. journalists.

  The above-mentioned measures by the Chinese side are totally a necessary counter-reaction to the US side to unreasonably suppress the Chinese media agencies in the United States, which are forced to carry out, and they are completely legitimate defenses. The U.S. approach to the Chinese media is based on Cold War thinking and ideological prejudice. It seriously damages the reputation and image of the Chinese media, seriously affects the normal operation of the Chinese media in the United States, severely disrupts the normal humanities exchanges between China and the United States, and exposes its so-called "self-proclaimed The hypocrisy of "freedom of the press". China urges the United States to immediately change its course and correct mistakes, and stop political suppression and unreasonable restrictions on the Chinese media. If the U.S. insists on doing it alone, adding wrong to wrong, China will surely take further countermeasures.

  China's basic national policy of adhering to opening up has not changed, nor will it change. We always welcome media and reporters from various countries to engage in interviews and reports in China in accordance with laws and regulations, and will continue to provide convenience and assistance. What we are opposed to is ideological prejudice against China. We are opposed to making fake news through the so-called freedom of the press. We are opposed to acts that violate journalistic ethics. It is hoped that foreign media and journalists will play an active role in promoting mutual understanding between China and the world.
