SMM: on the morning of July 24, 2020, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed the US Embassy in China that the Chinese side decided to revoke the license for the establishment and operation of the US Consulate General in Chengdu, and put forward specific requirements for the Consulate General to stop all operations and activities.

On 21 July, the US side unilaterally stirred up trouble and suddenly asked the Chinese side to close the Consulate General in Houston, seriously violating international law and basic norms governing international relations and relevant provisions of the Sino-US consular treaty, and seriously damaging Sino-US relations. The above-mentioned measures of the Chinese side are a legitimate and necessary response to the unreasonable actions of the United States, in line with international law and basic norms governing international relations, and in line with diplomatic practice.

The current situation between China and the United States is something that the Chinese side does not want to see, and the responsibility lies entirely with the United States. We once again urge the US side to immediately reverse the relevant erroneous decision and create the necessary conditions for relations between the two countries to return to normal.
