Mubasher: The Chinese government is warning its citizens against travelling to the US due to what it sees as unfair treatment to tourists from China, Reuters reported.
Chinese tourists are subject to excessive prevention measures over the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, according to China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
The ministry also referred to the security situation in its warning, as cited by the news agency.
Earlier this month, China’s Foreign Minister and State Councillor Wang Yi said that the US government has inappropriately overreacted to the virus epidemic with strict travel restrictions for China.
The Chinese official has indicated, according to South China Morning Post, that this is putting into jeopardy the first phase of the trade agreement that recently signed by Beijing and Washington.
