Chinese Embassy in Houston ordered closed

- The United States has told China to close its consulate in Houston in a dramatic worsening of ties between the world’s two biggest economies, and a source said Beijing was considering shutting the U.S. consulate in Wuhan in retaliation.

Washington “abruptly demanded” closure of the Houston consulate on Tuesday, China’s foreign ministry said, calling the move an “unprecedented escalation”. The editor of an official Chinese media outlet said China had been given 72 hours to do so.

The State Department said the move was made “to protect American intellectual property and Americans’ private information”.

Beijing condemned the order and threatened retaliation, but did not say what measures it might take.
