The U.S. has suspended visas for four categories of Chinese Communist Party members and their families, and Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying’s high-profile attack on the U.S. has led to heated debate among mainland netizens.
Radio Free Asia reported that a study abroad company recently handled the denial of a visa to the U.S. for the children of a low-ranking public security officer. The company disclosed that the U.S. visa officer said in the denial note, “This is in light of the U.S. Secretary of State’s directive to stop issuing visas to active duty personnel of China’s Immigration Bureau, Ministry of State Security, Ministry of Public Security, etc., and their spouses and children. “
But the U.S. Embassy in Beijing denied the claim that it was because his father is a police officer.
And Chinese Communist Party Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying recently confirmed in high profile the U.S. denial of visas to four categories of people and their families, and criticized the U.S., “This is a good example” that proves the U.S. is “artificially undermining normal personnel exchanges between China and the U.S.” for political reasons. “This is not conducive to the healthy and normal development of relations between China and the United States.”
Phoenix recently reposted an article from Beijing Youth Daily titled “U.S. Stops Issuing Visas to Children of Active Duty Personnel of China’s Immigration Bureau, Ministry of Public Security, etc.? The Foreign Ministry responded”, which was followed by tens of thousands of comments, with mainland netizens mostly reacting coldly and seemingly happily.
From the response, most netizens do not seem to blame the U.S., because the Sino-U.S. relationship has been such a pattern for several years and is getting more and more tense, so what is the use of blaming the U.S.? The spearhead seems to have turned, to Hua Chunying said “not conducive to the normal development of relations between China and the United States” expressed incomprehension: have not been exchanged, who destroyed the exchange of people between the two countries?
