At 10 am July 27, as required by the Chinese side, the US Consulate General in Chengdu was closed.

China's competent authorities then entered through the front entrance and took over the premises, Foreign Ministry said on its website.

On July 24, the ministry informed the US Embassy in China of its decision to withdraw its consent for the establishment and operation of the consulate, a "legitimate and necessary response" to earlier US unilateral provocation of demanding that China close its Consulate General in Houston.
