US designates Confucius Institutes as foreign mission
Institute part of Chinese Communist Party's 'global influence and propaganda apparatus,' says top US diplomat

ANKARA (AA) - The US on Thursday required China's Confucius Institute US Center (CIUS) to register as a foreign mission of Beijing amid worsening bilateral relations.

The State Department is "recognizing CIUS for what it is: an entity advancing Beijing's global propaganda and malign influence campaign on U.S. campuses and K-12 classrooms," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement.

It is funded by China as part of the "Chinese Communist Party's global influence and propaganda apparatus," Pompeo added.

Confucius Institutes are Chinese government-funded cultural and linguistic centers that operate on US university campuses.

Pompeo said the goal of the US action is "to ensure that American educators and school administrators can make informed choices about whether these CCP-backed (Chinese Communist Party) programs should be allowed to continue, and if so, in what fashion."

"The United States wants to ensure that students on U.S. campuses have access to Chinese language and cultural offerings free from the manipulation of the Chinese Communist Party and its proxies," he said, adding that the institute is under examination worldwide.
