USA State Department warning about visiting China!

In a travel advisory issued today, the agency warned American travelers to "exercise increased caution in China due to arbitrary enforcement of local laws as well as special restrictions on dual U.S.-Chinese nationals."

It specifically listed concern with the Chinese government's coercive use of "exit bans," which Beijing has previously used to keep U.S. citizens in China for extended periods and, sometimes, for years.

The warning comes a month after a prominent Chinese national, Meng Wanzhou, was detained in Canada for extradition at the request of U.S. officials. Following the arrest of Wanzhou, a top executive at Huawei Technologies, two Canadians were arrested and detained in China. Canada has forcefully denounced the move, which Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland called "arbitrary detention."

No- you don't say! After that whole thing? Seriously, the US has pulled this with an Indian diplomat & some woman connected to Russia (I don't know what she actually was or wasn't).

As long as your not famous, super-rich or a prominent businessman, I don't think you have to worry. This is all a tit-for-tat against America.
