China’s Foreign Ministry said that the United States’ updated travel advisory for China “does not hold water”.
The U.S. State Department yesterday renewed its warning for U.S. Citizens travelling in china to exercise increased caution due to “arbitrary enforcement of local laws” amid heightened diplomatic tensions over the arrest in Canada of Huawei’s Chief Financial Officer, Meng Wanzhou, in December.
It kept the warning at “level 2” but also warned about extra Security Checks and increased Police presence in the Xinjiang and Tibet autonomous regions.
The warning comes as two Canadian Citizens remain in detention in China.
Former Diplomat Michael Kovrig and Businessman Michael Spavor were arrested last month as relations between the two countries worsened.
