U.S. urges citizens to exercise `increased caution` on China travel

The Chinese flag. China hit back against a new U.S. advisory that warns citizens to exercise increased caution” there when traveling

Lu, the Chinese spokesman, said that 2.3 million Americans visited China between January and November past year, adding, "I think this figure speaks volumes for the security condition in China". It came days before talks on the U.S.

Thirteen Canadians have been detained in China following the arrest on December 1 of a senior executive from Chinese telecoms equipment giant Huawei, Ottawa said Thursday, with eight subsequently released.

Travel to China is getting risky for US citizens - especially those with dual U.S. The three family members, all American citizens, arrived in China in June under USA passports to visit the ailing father of Liu's wife. Those detentions occurred days after Canadian police arrested Huawei Technologies' chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver at the request of the United States.

On Thursday, China's prosecutor general said the pair had "violated our country's laws and regulations" and were being investigated.

The senator said the delegation's Chinese counterparts from the Canada-China Legislative Association paid a visit a few weeks ago, and Canada is now returning the favour.

The cases of Kovrig and Spavor have attracted concern and attention because of the serious charge from the Chinese against the two of "endangering national security". -China trade war were set to start. Diplomatic tensions between Canada and China have escalated since Meng's arrest on December 1.

It adds US citizens under exit bans have been harassed and threatened.

Wanzhou is now facing extradition to the US, which alleges that the Huawei executive attempted to evade USA trade embargoes against Iran. Nor did the State Department say what triggered the updated travel advisory. They have only been granted limited access to Canadian consular services.

The Chinese government has only given vague details about the detention of the two Canadians, and it has not drawn a direct link to Meng's arrest.

"I think that we are in a completely different place than we were just a year ago when it comes to our aspirations for China", MacKay said. "Chinese citizens and USA citizens of Chinese heritage may be subject to additional scrutiny and harassment".

Ms Meng was released on a C$10 million (S$10.1 million) bail on Dec 11 and is now living in one of her two multi-million-dollar Vancouver homes as she fights extradition to the US.
