The U.S. "unreasonably" suspended 44 Chinese passenger flights by four Chinese carriers from America to China, disrupted the normal operation of Chinese airlines and disregarded the health and safety of Chinese and foreign passengers, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said on Monday.

Since June 2021, all international flights coming into China have "been applied the same control measure to airlines, Chinese or foreign, in a fair, open and transparent way," Zhao said.

It has been proved that the measure, being cooperated by the vast majority of international carriers, has effectively blocked the spread of the epidemic and has also ensured the safety and health of global passengers, the spokesperson said. 

China urges the U.S. to stop politicizing flight epidemic prevention, disrupting and restricting normal personnel exchanges between the two countries, said Zhao.
