Added On June 5, 2020

Spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks on Thursday, when asked to comment on the U.S. Department of Transportation's order to suspend the scheduled passenger flights of Chinese carriers to and from the United States, effective from June 16. "We regret the aforementioned U.S. decision. As far as I know, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) is making stern representations with the U.S. side. The CAAC has been in close contact with the U.S. Department of Transportation over flight arrangements, with some progress already made. The Chinese side has announced adjustment of relevant policies. We hope that the U.S. side will not create obstacles to bilateral efforts to solve problems."
