U.S Orders China To Close Houston Consulate
The U.S. State Department yesterday ordered the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, to be shut down. This is the first time this has ever happened since the U.S. and China established diplomatic relations 41 years ago.
Located on Montrose Blvd. in Houston, Texas, the Chinese consulate was the first consulate in the United States. The consulate office has served eight southern U.S. states. China is heavily invested in Texas and Louisiana because of the oil industry.
The Chinese consulate has been accused of being a spy center for the Chinese Government. China has called the ordered shut down an outrageous and unjustified move that will sabotage U.S.-China relations.
We are very worried about the world’s two largest economic powers coming to a dead end. Many right wing politicians would like to see the Cold War come back and eventually lead to military confrontation.
People around the world are still suffering because of the pandemic and economic slowdown. The federal government still doesn’t have an effective way to face this crisis.
The world needs a peaceful environment to improve our living standard. We need real leaders to lead us in the future.
我們非常不願看到世界兩大經濟體正在走極端惡化之情勢，美國許多反華政客正在推動中美兩國脫勾， 進入冷戰時代 ，甚至發動軍事衝突。
