China warns US it may detain Americans: reports

Oct 18, 2020 10:32 IST

Chinese government officials have warned their American counterparts they may detain US nationals in China in response to the Justice Department’s prosecution of Chinese military-affiliated scholars, Wall Street Journal reported. The Chinese officials have issued warnings to US government representatives repeatedly and through multiple channels, the report said. In July, the US had arrested three Chinese nationals for allegedly concealing memberships in the Peoples Liberation Army when applying for visas to conduct research at US academic institutions.
