Exercise increased caution in China due to arbitrary enforcement of local laws as well as special restrictions on dual U.S.-Chinese nationals.

I read that this morning. Not really up on the history of travel restrictions to China. Is this rare or something that happens somewhat regularly?

China hit back at the US yesterday, saying its updated travel advisory did not stand up to scrutiny.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular news briefing in Beijing that the country always welcomes foreigners, including Americans, but expects them to respect and abide by Chinese laws.The updated travel advisory maintains the warning at "Level 2" but also warns about extra security checks and increased police presence in the Xinjiang Uighur and Tibet Autonomous Regions, Reuters reported.

The advisory follows the detentions by the Chinese authorities last month of Canadians Michael Kovrig, a former diplomat and an adviser with the International Crisis Group think-tank, and businessman Michael Spavor. China says both men were suspected of endangering state security.

Tensions with China increased after Canadian police arrested Huawei Technologies' chief financial officer, Ms Meng Wanzhou, on Dec 1 in Vancouver at the request of the United States.

Mr Lu said China will protect foreign citizens' "security and legitimate rights and interests in China, including freedom of entry and exit".
