China's foreign ministry comments on warning to students studying in the U.S.
Following the warning issued by China's Education Ministry cautioning students about studying in the U.S., China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) also commented on the issue.
"Recently the U.S. has imposed some unnecessary restrictions on normal people-to-people exchange between our two countries, including on Chinese students planning to study in the U.S., which is opposed by the education sector and international students of both countries," said the MOFA spokesperson.
"As to the measures China will take, you may follow up on that."
On Monday, the Ministry of Education issued a warning for Chinese students who are applying for schools in the U.S. about visa limits, such as longer visa processing times and higher rejection rates.
Between 2017 and 2018, a total of 363,300 registered Chinese students studied in U.S. colleges.
In 2017, Chinese students brought in about 1.3 billion U.S. dollars to the country.
