China orders U.S. to shut Chengdu consulate, retaliating for Houston | Reuters

After the announcement of an order closing the Houston Consulate, China retaliated by ordering the US to shut its consulate in Chengdu. The US was also given 72 hours to close, or until 10 a.m. on Monday. “We urge the Chinese Communist Party to cease these malign actions rather than engage in tit-for-tat retaliation,” John Ullyot, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, said in a statement.
