After countries around the world retreat their citizens from China, many countries closed their border nowadays. In this moment, US and China expel the media of each other from their country. This kind of action most likely to happen in war times. Many military fan said, Wuhan Coronavirus is the first wave of World War III, it is a kind of bacteria battle.
China is to strip US journalists of their credentials. PRC foreign ministry said on Thursday that from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post, Voice of America and TIME Magazine – must submit documents detailing “staff members, financial status, operation status and property they owned in China.” Press cards which expire by the end of this year must then be returned within 10 days.
In a further unprecedented move, the ministry also said that the US staff from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post would not be allowed to work as journalists in Hong Kong or Macau.
It is unclear how the restriction would be implemented and if it would apply to those with permanent residency in the Special Administrative Regions. Article 27 of the Basic Law guarantees the freedom of the press in Hong Kong, whilst Article 33 states residents have freedom of choice of occupation.
The action comes after Washington cut by almost half the number of Chinese citizens allowed to work for Beijing’s state-run media in the US following the ousting of three Wall Street Journal reporters from China.-------------------------------------------------
