US Places Tighter Restrictions on Chinese Journalists

US Places Tighter Restrictions on Chinese Journalists

The state of play: Chinese journalists used to have open-ended, single-entry stays in the U.S. They will be able to apply for extensions, but those, too, will be limited to 90 days, the Times notes. The new rules will not apply to reporters carrying passports issued by the semi-autonomous Chinese territories of Hong Kong and Macau.

The analysis attributed the investment slowdown to Chinese restrictions on outbound capital, more regulatory oversight in the United States, slower Chinese economic growth, and rising tensions between the two nations. We urge the USA to immediately correct its mistake.

It's the latest development in a media war between Washington and Beijing that has intensified during the coronavirus pandemic. Before that, the USA reduced the number of Chinese citizens employed by multiple state-controlled Chinese news organizations to work in the country.

After that China expelled more than a dozen American journalists from the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal in retaliation to the United States restricting the number of Chinese media personnel.

USA regulators, anxious that China will gain access to sensitive American technology, have been taking a harder look at Chinese investment in the United States, a shift mandated by a 2018 law. Beijing responded by effectively expelling US journalists working at three American newspapers in China.

In issuing the new regulation, the Department of Homeland Security cited what it called China's "suppression of independent journalism".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he was undecided about whether to end the so-called Phase 1 U.S. The COVID-19 strain originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan and has now spread worldwide, infecting more than 4.1 million people and killing more than 282,000, according to Johns Hopkins University.

President Donald Trump and other US officials have repeatedly claimed the Chinese government underplayed the country's role a lab in Wuhan, China, had in spreading coronavirus around the globe. The government has reserved its most cutting attacks for the Trump administration, which it says is seeking to shift blame to China to divert attention from its own bungling of the pandemic and motivate his base ahead of the November presidential election.

Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the comments at Monday's daily briefing in Beijing, calling the new rule from Washington "an escalation of political suppression against Chinese media".
