继教育部发布赴美留学预警之后,文化和旅游部以及外交部也发出了近期希望中国公民游客谨慎前往美国旅游的警示。

The alert from the education ministry states that the visa applications of some Chinese hoping to study in the United States have recently been restricted, with an extended review process, shortened validity period, and an increased rejection rate, which have affected their plans to study in the United States or the completion of their studies there.

教育部的预警指出,一段时间以来,中方部分赴美留学人员的签证受到限制,出现签证审查周期延长、有效期缩短以及拒签率上升的情况,对中方留学人员正常赴美学习或在美顺利完成学业造成影响。

教育部国际合作与交流司副司长徐永吉透露,2019年第一季度中国公派赴美留学拒签率高达13.5%。

According to the China Scholarship Council, 182 government-funded students and scholars failed to get into the US because of visa restrictions from January to March-13.5 percent of the total. Only 3.2 percent of the total 10,313 government-funded students and scholars were unable to go to the US as a result of visa restrictions in 2018.

根据国家留学基金管理委员会的统计,2019年1月至3月,中方公派赴美留学的人员中,有182人因签证问题未能成行,占计划派出逾13.5%。而2018年,中方计划公派赴美留学10313人,其中因签证问题无法按原计划赴美人数仅占计划派出人员数量的3.2%。

6月4日下午,国务院新闻办公室举行专题新闻发布会。发布会上,文化和旅游部发布了关于中国游客近期谨慎前往美国旅游的提醒。

Noting the frequent occurrence of shootings, robberies and theft in the United States recently, the ministry warned Chinese tourists to fully assess the risks of traveling there. Chinese tourists are urged to learn about the information about the public security situation and related laws and regulations of tourist destinations, to raise safety awareness and step up precautions to stay safe.

近期,美国枪击、抢劫、盗窃案件频发。文化和旅游部提醒中国游客充分评估赴美旅游风险,及时了解旅游目的地治安、法律法规等信息,切实提高安全防范意识,确保平安。

The travel alert is valid until Dec. 31, 2019.

本提醒有效期至2019年12月31日。

发布会上,外交部也发布了赴美安全提醒。

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Chinese embassy in the United States reminded citizens traveling to the US and Chinese companies in the US to step up their safety awareness and preventative measures and respond appropriately and actively.

外交部和中国驻美国使领馆提醒赴美国的中国公民和在美国中资机构,提高安全意识,注意加强防范,妥善积极应对。

提醒指出:

US law enforcement agencies have harassed Chinese citizens traveling to or leaving the country through entry-and-exit interrogations and "drop-in" interviews, the department said, advising people to call the embassy or local consulate in case of emergency.

近期,美国执法机构多次采取出入境盘查、上门约谈等多种方式骚扰赴美中国公民。外交部和中国驻美国使领馆称,如遇紧急情况,请及时与中国驻美国使领馆联系寻求协助。

外交部全球领事保护与服务应急热线(24小时):+86-10-12308或+86-10-59913991。

本提醒有效期至2019年12月31日。

外交部回应



在6月4日的外交部例行记者会上,有记者提问:我们看到,昨天中国教育部发布了赴美留学预警。美方表示,拒绝中方无端指责,但没有采取相应行动。中方如何回应?另外,我们刚刚也看到,中国文化和旅游部首次发布中国游客赴美旅游安全提醒。中方发布这两个提醒,希望传递怎样的信息?

外交部发言人耿爽回答:

Relevant authorities have already responded to questions on yesterday's warning by the Ministry of Education. Regarding the US response, the US knows better than anyone the things it has done, the barriers set up and their impact.

关于昨天中国教育部发布的留学预警,有关单位的负责人已经回答了记者的提问。对于美方的回应,我想指出的是,美方到底做了什么事情、设置了哪些障碍、造成了哪些影响,他们心里应该很清楚。

For some time, the US has been politicizing normal education exchange and cooperation with China on the pretext of the so-called "China threat" and "Chinese infiltration". For example, it falsely accuses Confucius Institutes as a tool to expand political influence and spread Chinese values, accuses some Chinese students and academics of carrying out "non-conventional espionage activities" and wantonly harasses them, and imposes visa restrictions on Chinese students majoring in certain disciplines. It reviewed and revoked some Chinese citizens' visa under the pretext of counterintelligence and recently canceled the 10-year visa for some Chinese academics studying China-US relations. These examples show clearly how US actions have severely affected bilateral exchange in education and other people-to-people and cultural sectors.

一段时间以来,美方以“中国威胁”、“中国渗透”为由,将正常的中美教育交流合作活动政治化。比如说,美方诬蔑孔子学院为中国在美扩张政治影响、进行价值传播的工具;比如说,美方诬陷一些中国学生学者在美开展“非传统间谍”活动并对他们进行无端滋扰;比如说,美方对中国部分专业赴美学生进行签证限制。他们还以反间谍为由吊销或重新审查了一些中方赴美人员签证,近期还取消了一批中方从事中美关系研究学者赴美十年签证。我想这些事例都充分说明,美方的所作所为对中美教育领域的交流合作,以及两国人文交流造成了严重冲击和影响。

I need to emphasize that China always supports international student exchange and other education and people-to-people cooperation, including with the US. However, such cooperation should not be one-way, but should be based on mutual readiness and mutual respect.

我同时也要强调,中方始终支持同包括美国在内的世界各国开展留学生交流以及教育人文领域的合作。但是这种合作不应该是单向的,而应该本着相互尊重的态度,基于双方共同的意愿。

As to the tourism reminder issued by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism this afternoon, I believe it is only necessary in light of current circumstances. China would not have done so were it not necessary.

至于你提到的今天下午中国文化和旅游部发布的旅游提醒,我想,这也是形势使然。如果没有这个必要性,中方也不会这么做。

For some time, US law enforcement agencies have been harassing Chinese citizens with interrogation upon entry or exit and on-site interviews, among other forms. Therefore the Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued the tourism reminder, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Chinese Embassy and consulates in the US decided to issue the safety reminder to raise safety awareness. That, I believe, is what a responsible government should do.

一段时间以来,美国执法机构多次采取出入境盘查、上门约谈等方式骚扰赴美中国公民。文化和旅游部发布旅游提醒,外交部和中国驻美国使领馆发布“在美国注意安全”安全提醒,我想这完全是一个负责任的政府应该做的事情。

At the same time I would like to stress that China keeps an open attitude towards normal people-to-people and cultural exchange with the US, but it should be based on mutual respect.

同时我要强调,中方对中美之间正常的人员往来、正常的人文交流始终持积极开放态度,但这种往来交流应该建立在相互尊重的基础之上。
