    “The Vienna Convention states diplomats must ‘respect the laws and regulations of the receiving State' and 'have a duty not to interfere in the internal affairs of that State.’ The United States will not tolerate the PRC’s violations of our sovereignty and intimidation of our people, just as we have not tolerated the PRC’s unfair trade practices, theft of American jobs, and other egregious behavior. President Trump insists on fairness and reciprocity in U.S.-China relations,” State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

    “We have directed the closure of PRC Consulate General Houston, in order to protect American intellectual property and American’s private information,” he added.
