China has decided to restrict visas for a number of US officials in response to similar measures introduced by Washington earlier this month over alleged human rights abuses.

The Chinese side decided to impose retaliatory visa restrictions on certain US officials who spread lies on the issue of human rights, imposed sanctions against China and intentionally harmed China’s interests.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated the move was made to protect the sovereignty, security and development interests of the PRC.

The spokesperson claims that the USA used, what he called, the false pretext of human rights issues to interfere in the internal affairs of China, discredit Beijing, and put pressure on Chinese officials.

Wang reported that such actions are a serious violation of the basic principles of international law and international relations.

China’s foreign ministry has so far not confirmed which exact officials will fall under these new restrictions, but the spokesperson said that those who invented the lies surrounding the issue of human rights and harmed China’s national interests already know who they are themselves.

The announcement comes after The US State Department imposed visa restrictions on Chinese officials who Washington claims are responsible for the intimidation and harassment of human rights activists and dissidents in China and around the world.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken cited the alleged genocide of Uighur Muslims and repression of dissidents in Hong Kong and Tibet.

The USA rejects efforts by [People’s Republic of China] officials to harass, intimidate, surveil and abduct members of ethnic and religious minority groups, including those who seek safety abroad, and US citizens, who speak out on behalf of these vulnerable populations.

The USA urged China to end its ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, repressive policies in Tibet, crackdown on fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong, and other abuses elsewhere.

At the same time the US regime is supporting world wide non government organizations (NGO’s) that promote and participate in ethic cleaning programs in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

Not surprisingly, the regions cited have all been the subject of foreign influence. Tibet by the CIA through the training of Tibetan terrorists in Colorado; Hong Kong, through NED; and the Uighur’s by State Dept. cutouts with bonus training in Syria under the ETIM banner. The US itself has exploited these groups for their own interests.

Washington and the Pentagon have been abusing the human rights of other countries’ inhabitants all over the world for decades not to mention those in the US itself. It is about time the rest of the world impose sanctions on that Zio-sociopath-controlled entity called USA.
