American Flag Lowered Over US Consulate In Chengdu As Chinese Agents Take It Over | Zero Hedge

In what Beijing has called a “legitimate and necessary response” to last Friday’s federal agent raid and forced closure of China’s consulate in Houston — slammed as “unreasonable actions” — the American consulate in Chengdu, capital of southwestern China’s Sichuan province, has officially been shuttered as of Monday morning.“At 10am on July 27, according to the Chinese side’s request, the US Consulate General in Chengdu was closed,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.  Tight security was seen around the complex throughout the weekend as moving vans pulled up to the facility. CGTN, the Chinese state broadcaster, announced that the American flag had been lowered at about 6:18am local time on Monday.
