OREANDA-NEWSThe Chinese authorities do not see any reason for introducing restrictive measures in the field of tourism and trade against the PRC due to the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus.

This was announced on Monday at a briefing by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, Hua Chunying. "WHO continues to believe in China's ability to control the outbreak. There is no reason to take measures that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade", she said.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry also noted that the US authorities imposed excessive restrictive measures against China in connection with the spread of pneumonia. The official representative of the department called the actions of the American side a bad example. "The US government has not yet provided us with any significant assistance, but it was the first to evacuate the staff of its embassy and the first to impose a ban on entry for foreigners visiting China", said Hua Chunying.
