China orders US media outlets to submit details

Beijing has asked four US media outlets to provide information on its operations in China.

According to the details, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has said that it has asked 4 American media outlets working in China to submit their details.

He said that the staff of media houses, financial sources and details of property in China have been ordered to be submitted within 7 days.

The spokesman warned the United States to change its attitude, correct its mistakes, put political pressure and refrain from unwarranted blockades on the Chinese media.

American media outlets include the Associated Press (AP), UPI, CBS and National Public Radio.

Tensions between the United States and China over media have erupted in recent months following other issues, including the Coronavirus and Hong Kong.

The United States in March reduced the number of people working in China’s four state media outlets from 160 to just 100.

This has made a high impact on the US-China trade deal. However, a recent statement by a US top Official has drawn more concerns.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro in his recent statement has said that the trade deal with China is “over,”.
