China's decision to close the United States consulate general in Chengdu is a legitimate and necessary countermeasure for the US’ “wrongful” decision on China, says China’s foreign ministry’s spokesman Wang Wenbin.

He commented on China’s decision to withdraw its consent for the establishment and operation of the US consulate general in Chengdu.
