China Orders Four US Media Outlets To Disclose Finances, Staff
China on Wednesday ordered 4 US news shops to reveal particulars on their employees and monetary operations within the nation inside seven days, as a media row escalates between Washington and Beijing.
The Related Press, United Press Worldwide, CBS and NPR should report the knowledge — in addition to particulars of any actual property they maintain in China — in retaliation for Washington’s crackdown this month on 4 Chinese language state media shops, overseas ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian mentioned.
China’s actions are “fully crucial countermeasures towards the USA’ unreasonable oppression of Chinese language media organisations within the US”, Zhao mentioned at a daily press briefing.
The US State Division on June 22 reclassified 4 Chinese language state media shops as overseas missions in the USA, including to 5 others designated in February.
After the primary group of shops had been ordered to chop their Chinese language employees working in the USA, Beijing hit again by expelling US nationals working for The New York Instances, The Wall Road Journal and The Washington Submit.
