We believe that these things are major issues of prin

ciple. So every country has important principles, and we absolutely c

annot make concessions on such issues of principle,” the vice-premier said.

Liu, however, added that he hoped both sides would exhibit flexibility in the talks.

He refuted the criticism of the US side that China reneged on its promises in the draft trade text.

“We believe that it is only natural to have changes before a final deal; it is something that surely occurs in the process, so we

don’t think the Chinese side has back-walked,” he said, adding that he disagreed with the wording of “renege”.

“We just had differing views on how to phrase some things in t

he text, and we hope to resolve it, so it’s unnecessary to overreact to the issue,” he said.

It’s regrettable that the US treats academics like me in

such an unfriendly and offensive manner,” Wang said, adding t

hat Washington’s decision shows that the country has become an “oversensitive and

paranoid one which has a lack of confidence in dealing with diplomatic relations”.

A number of Chinese social scientists have had similar experiences when their US visas were revoked.

Zhu Feng, executive director of the China Center for Collaborat

ive Studies of the South China Sea at Nanjing University, told the Global Times news

paper in Beijing that his 10-year US visa was crossed out by FBI agents, canceling it, whe

n he was about to board a flight back to Beijing at Los Angeles International Airport in March 2018.

Zhu said the FBI first threatened to revoke his visa if he did not cooperate with their inquiry.

“‘Go back to China’,”Zhu recalled an agent telling him during that visit. “You will receive a notification.”

I want to go to school in another province. That way, I won’t

feel like an orphan,” he wrote in the letter, referring to special classes established for Tibetan students in schools

outside the region that allow them to share equal teaching resources with their “inland” counterparts.

“All my classmates would be separated from their parents, so I wouldn’t want to have parents.”

Nyima Gyaltsan rarely shares his feelings, fearing that he may be mocked and treated differently, but Qian, who arrived from

affluent Jiangsu province five years ago, is an exception, even though he only began teaching the boy last semester.

“When Teacher Qian learned I was an orphan, he tried to ease my mental stress and help me

study,” Nyima Gyaltsan said, adding that he has spoken privately with Qian several times.

As the boy has no family members to help with his school work, Qian told him to high

light anything he didn’t understand in any subject and he would find teachers to help him.

“Teacher Qian told me I can always turn to him, or talk with him every Wednesday at noon if I come across any difficulties or stress,” he said.
