China’s agriculture inspectors visit US agriculture facilities, inspect livestock

China’s government has ordered the United States to inspect its agriculture inspection stations in the two nations, an official said.

In a joint statement on Tuesday, the two sides said the inspection posts would be opened on the second day of May, a week after the two countries agreed to open up trade and cooperation in agriculture.

China has been pressing Washington to make the inspection sites more accessible.

In the past two weeks, the U.S. and China have been conducting bilateral inspections of Chinese agricultural facilities in response to a U.N. panel’s recommendation that the two governments take a step back from the joint inspections.

The U.K. is currently conducting similar inspections of its farms.

The two nations also announced that they would begin issuing travel advisories to foreign travelers.
