针对近日有中国留学生在美机场入境时遭盘查并被遣返,外交部发言人汪文斌30日表示,中方对此强烈不满和坚决反对,敦促美方停止利用各种借口对中国留学生进行无端限制和打压,停止阻挠破坏中美人文交流的言行。

在昨天的例行记者会上,有记者问:据悉,近日,三名中国留学生在美国休斯敦机场入境时遭美方盘查,随后被认定可能“危害美国国家安全”遭遣返。外交部是否知情?对此有何评论?

汪文斌表示,8月15日,三名中国留学生持合法签证在美国休斯敦机场入境时,遭美方盘查并遣返回中国,理由是三人受中国政府资助或其个人手机内发现军训照片因而被怀疑有军方背景。中方对此强烈不满和坚决反对,已就此向美方提出严正交涉。

On August 15, three Chinese students having valid visas were interrogated by the US side upon entry at the Houston Airport, after which they were repatriated to China on the grounds that they were either funded by the Chinese government or suspected of having military background because photos of military training were found in their personal cellphones. China deplores and rejects this, and has lodged solemn representations with the US side.

美方以捕风捉影甚至是荒唐的借口遣返中国留学生,严重损害中国赴美留学人员合法权益,严重破坏中美正常人文交流和教育合作。这种针对特定国家留学生的歧视性做法,与美方自我标榜的开放自由理念和“欢迎中国留学生”的表态完全背道而驰,与开展国际人才交流的时代潮流背道而驰,是开历史倒车,理应受到谴责。

The US repatriated the Chinese students under far-fetched or even ludicrous pretexts. This severely infringes upon the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese students seeking to study in the US and gravely disrupts normal people-to-people and cultural exchanges and education cooperation between the two sides. Such discriminatory practice targeting students from a specific country runs counter to the much-touted vision of openness and freedom and the statement of welcoming Chinese students by the US. It also runs counter to the trend for talent exchange of our times. Such historical backpedaling should rightly be condemned.

中方敦促美方纠正错误,停止利用各种借口对中国留学生无端限制和打压,停止阻挠破坏中美人文交流的言行。中方将继续支持中国留学人员依法维护他们的正当合法权益。

China urges the US to redress its mistake, stop the wanton restrictions and suppression of Chinese students under all sorts of pretexts, and put an end to words and acts that disrupt and undermine bilateral people-to-people and cultural exchanges. China will continue to support its students in defending their legitimate and legal rights and interests according to law.
