US blocks flights by Chinese airlines in escalating dispute

PressTV 25 views
China and the United States are at odds again, this time, on the suspension of each others' flights. The US has suspended 44 flights by Chinese carriers, with the Transportation Department saying the move is in response to a similar decision by China. In recent weeks, Beijing suspended 44 flights by American airlines, after detecting positive covid cases. Now, the Chinese Embassy in Washington says such policy has been applied equally to Chinese and foreign airlines in a fair, open, and transparent way. The embassy says the US measure is unreasonable, urging Washington to stop disrupting normal passenger flights. The two countries are at loggerheads on other issues including the coronavirus origin as well as trade and politics.
