China takes “reciprocal” measures against US diplomats – spokesman

BEIJING, The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Friday that it had imposed restrictions on US diplomats in China in response to a similar measure taken by Washington in October.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a news conference that Beijing had notified the US embassy of the new measures, which she said were a “countermeasure” to Washington’s move in October to restrict Chinese diplomats.

“We once again urge the US side to correct its mistakes and revoke the relevant rules,” she said In October, Washington ordered Chinese diplomats to notify the State Department in advance of any official meetings with US diplomats.
