The US claims that the spying activities of the Consulate in Houston has gone beyond the bounds of decency

A senior official of the Ministry of justice said the Agency Reutersthat intelligence activities on the basis of the Chinese Consulate in Houston (Texas) went beyond what is permitted.

So, an anonymous official said that all the consulates of foreign States one way or another are the bases for the work of the intelligence services, but “the total amount of activities of the Consulate in Houston has gone beyond what we are willing to accept.” “At some point you say: “Pretty”, – said the Agency interlocutor.

The official added that this activity “is not necessarily subject to criminal prosecution,” including because of the diplomatic immunity enjoyed by consular officials.

Earlier this week the US demanded that China close the Consulate in Houston, accusing its officers of involvement in economic espionage, “stock effect”, subversive activities and attempts to steal scientific data.

Beijing has rejected the charges and on the basis of the principle of reciprocity demanded from the United States to close the Consulate General in Chengdu (Sichuan province).

The relationship between the US and China in recent months has seriously deteriorated in the epidemic coronavirus infection, the first cases of which were confirmed in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019. The President of the United States Donald trump and other U.S. officials have repeatedly accused Beijing of concealing the extent of the outbreak in the early stages that, in their opinion, was the main cause of the pandemic.
