The Linked Press, United Press International, CBS Information and NPR News need to submit appropriate paperwork to the Chinese governing administration inside of seven days, International Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian reported Wednesday at a standard press briefing.
“China is compelled to just take these steps to counter the US’ unreasonable suppression of Chinese media in the US,” Zhao mentioned. “They are entirely self-defense.”
“The US actions are primarily based on Cold War mentality and ideological prejudices,” Zhao extra. “They have seriously harmed Chinese media’s standing and image, and severely disrupted their normal functions in the US.”
The Trump administration and the Beijing governing administration have been engaged in numerous rounds of tit-for-tat targeting of each and every other’s media outlets.
