The Government of China on Tuesday issued a warning to those who want to visit the United States, claiming security issues related to frequent shootings, assaults and robberies in public places in that country.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism urged Chinese citizens to evaluate the risks, be informed on the current situation and comply with laws in the US destinations where they plan to travel.
The Ministry called on holidaymakers to be aware of insecurity and take all possible precautions if they finally decide to visit the United States.
The travel warning for Chinese tourists will be in force until December 31 and it was issued a day after the Ministry of Education warned students and academics on growing obstacles to get a US entry visa amid the escalation of tensions between the two countries in the commercial and technological sectors. / PL
