The Chinese government is threatening to detain innocent U.S. nationals in China in retaliation to the Justice Department’s prosecution of Chinese military-affiliated scholars, Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane warned Sunday.
“China wants to retaliate,” Keane told “Fox & Friends.” “They’ve done this kind of retaliation with the Canadians — right now they’ve got two of them arrested…and they’ve also done it with the Australians and Swedes.
“The difference is, ” Keane continued, “we’re arresting spies. What China will likely do is detain Americans who have done nothing. They are not guilty of anything.”
Chinese officials reportedly issued several retaliatory warnings to U.S. government representatives through the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and other channels — according to the Wall Street Journal — who spoke with people familiar with the matter.
“The Chinese message, the people said, has been blunt: The U.S. should drop prosecutions of the Chinese scholars in American courts, or Americans in China might find themselves in violation of Chinese law,” according to the newspaper.
China began issuing warnings this summer after the U.S. arrested multiple Chinese scientists who were said to be visiting American universities to conduct research. They were charged with hiding their connection to the People’s Liberation Army from U.S. immigration authorities, the Journal reported Saturday.
