With geo-economic tensions rising in the Korean peninsula, China is back, once again, bullying and waging an economic war on its neighbour South Korea.
With the U.S maintaining its pressure on North Korea, the dictatorial regime main ally China has resumed its efforts to fight an economic war with those who are helping in the effort to reign in its ally with South Korea’s inbound travel agency stating on Wednesday that Beijing has resumed its ban on group tours into South Korea.
China had adopted this measure as part of a series of retaliatory measures over South Korea’s deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system due to nuclear missile threats from North Korea.
“I was told from my boss this morning that our Chinese partners (based in Beijing and Shandong) said they won’t send group tourists to South Korea as of January,” said an official from Naeil Tour Agency.
Chinese officials have portrayed the move as issues revolving around visas, said the official.
The development comes despite a visit by South Korean President Moon Jae-in to China which resulted in some signs of thaw in its relation with Beijing.
