China has withdrawn accreditation from three newspaper correspondents in protest at an offensive comment in the Wall Street Journal.

The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced today in front of the press in Beijing. The press card will be withdrawn with immediate effect. This eliminates the basis for your visa and residence permit in China.

The trigger of the Chinese anger is an opinion contribution of the columnist and professor Walter Russell Mead in the „Wall Street Journal“ of February 4th about dealing with the new lung disease with the headline: „China is the ‚true sick man‘ of Asia.“
