The US has urged its citizens travelling to China to exercise "increased caution" due to "arbitrary enforcement of local laws" and special restrictions on dual US-Chinese nationals, days after the detention of two Canadians by Chinese authorities.
The department says the bans can be used to lure US citizens back into China, or to compel them to stay in the country because of Chinese government investigations or civil disputes.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, asked about the updated advisory in a televised interview, said the State Department wanted Americans to "understand the risk but still travel there when it's appropriate". "This warning will just stir up anti-Chinese sentiments in the U.S., since many Americans [already] feel threatened about China's growing power", said Neumann, adding that American visitors to China should not feel at risk.
