[global network reporter Li Dongyao] the black hand of the trump government will extend to the field of Sino US cultural exchanges again? The U.S. State Department will announce as early as Thursday (13 local time) that Confucius Institutes in the United States will need to be registered as “foreign missions,” according to an anonymous person familiar with the matter, according to a report on the 12th. The decision will mean determining that Confucius Institutes are “substantially owned or effectively controlled” by foreign governments, which will allow them to accept administrative requirements similar to those of embassies and consulates. The State Department has not immediately responded to requests for comment, according to the agency. < / P > < p > according to the statistics of the National Association of scholars, an independent research institution that studies Confucius Institutes, 80 of the 550 Confucius Institutes in the world are located in American universities, including Stanford University and Savannah State University in Georgia. According to the report, these Confucius Institutes have long been the targets of some American politicians towards China, including Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who once asked the state schools to terminate the relevant agreements. At present, there are conflicts between China and the United States over multiple issues such as Hong Kong and 5g technology, which may further aggravate tensions with China, according to the news agency. < p > < p > last year, the US Senate Standing Committee of inquiry issued a survey report on Confucius Institutes, saying that these institutions should be restricted in their attempts to influence public opinion in the United States. In response, a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry stressed at that time that the US individual and individual institutions are now politicizing the Confucius Institute, a normal Sino US educational exchange project, without any basis, showing a typical cold war mentality. It is hoped that these people can truly consider the legitimate and urgent needs of the American public, students, teachers and parents for learning Chinese and understanding Chinese culture, and do not politicize the exchanges between the two peoples. Before that, the trump administration also listed some Chinese media organizations in the United States as “foreign missions”. In response to the US side’s regulation of China Central Television, China News Agency, people’s daily and global times as “foreign missions”, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian stressed in June this year that China strongly urges the United States to abandon cold war thinking and ideological bias and immediately stop and correct this wrong practice of harming others and not benefiting itself. Otherwise, China will have to make the necessary and proper response. Zhao Li insisted that this is the second time that the US side has listed Chinese media organizations in the United States as “foreign missions”. This is another example of the US side’s naked suppression of Chinese media politics, which will further seriously interfere with the normal reporting activities of Chinese media in the United States, and further expose the so-called news and hypocrisy of the US side.
