The action came 24 hours after Pompeo accused China of genocide against Uighur Muslims.
The announcement was made as Joe Biden took oath of office as President.
China said Pompeo and others had “executed a series of crazy moves, gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-US relations”.
“The forcing of men, women and children into concentration camps; trying to, in effect, re-educate them to be adherents to the ideology of the Chinese Communist party, all of that speaks to an effort to commit genocide,” Blinken said.
“This US politician is notorious for lying and cheating, is making himself a laughing stock and a clown. We hope the new US administration can have their own reasonable and cool-minded judgment on Xinjiang issues, among other issues,” she said.
