China said on Tuesday that some countries persist in adopting discriminatory entry restrictions against Chinese travelers, which China firmly opposes and has reasons to take necessary reciprocal measures.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Mao Ning made the remarks at a regular press briefing in Beijing in response to comments saying that the Chinese government may conduct nucleic acid tests on every South Korean traveler to China.
"It is a pity that certain countries still insist on adopting discriminatory entry restriction measures against China. China firmly opposes this and has reasons to take necessary reciprocal measures," Mao said.
Mao emphasized that China had always firmly opposed the politicization of epidemic prevention and control, and advocated the cancellation of discriminatory restrictive measures against China.
"We are willing to work with other countries to create more convenience for the normal exchanges of Chinese and foreign personnel," Mao added.
