China Bars Airing Of BBC Network In Retaliation Of UK Banning CGTN

China’s broadcasting regulator has banned BBC World News for one year for violating guidelines in a report made on China's infamous imprisonment of around one million Uighur Muslims. The regulator, NRTA, justified its decision saying BBC "harmed China's national interests, and undermined China's national unity". Reportedly, China's move is being considered as a retaliation of UK media regulator Ofcom’s February 4 decision of banning Chinese CGTN network's broadcasting licence by citing fraudulent activities.
