“irrational” and “delusional”..Beijing opposes Washington’s new restrictions on Chinese diplomats

Beijing strongly opposes fresh restrictions imposed by Washington against Chinese diplomats working in the US, China’s Foreign Ministry said, warning that the move won’t be left unanswered.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, blasted the new rules as “irrational” and “delusional” during a briefing in Beijing. They violate international law and only further complicate relations between the two countries, she said.

The spokeswoman urged Washington to correct its mistake and revoke the decision. But if it won’t be done, China will come up with a “legitimate response,” she added.

On Wednesday, the Trump administration announced that senior Chinese diplomats would from now on have to get approval from the US State Department before visiting American university campuses or staging cultural events with more than 50 people outside embassy grounds.
