A Chinese agent has pleaded guilty to being a spy in United States.
The agent, a Singaporean man, admitted to working for the Chinese government in US.
The US has accused the Singaporean, Jun Wei Yeo, of collecting information for Chinese intelligence.
He was arrested in 2019 as he arrived in the US via a flight.
The confession has heightened the tensed relationship between China and US.
The US earlier this week closed down China’s consulate in Houston prompting the Chinese to retaliate in like manner by ordering the US consulate in Chengdu to close down.
