US revokes more than 1000 visas of Chinese nationals over military links

Washington: The United States has revoked more than 1000 visas of Chinese nationals as of September 8, a State Department spokesperson said on Wednesday, as part of the Trump administration's push to block entry of students and researchers from China believed to have links to the Chinese military.

"We continue to welcome legitimate students and scholars from China who do not further the Chinese Communist Party's goals of military dominance," a Department spokesperson said in emailed comments to Reuters.
