China accuses U.S. of racial discrimination over visa cancellations


On Thursday, China accused the United States of political persecution and racial discrimination.

China said it reserves the right for further reaction, after Washington said it had revoked the visas of more than 1,000 Chinese students and researchers it had deemed security risks.

The U.S. move, announced on Wednesday, was a violation of the human rights of the students, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a regular news briefing.
