A statement from the China National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) states that BBC World News news about China seriously violates the guidelines, which state that news must be “true and fair” and that it must not “harm China’s national interests.”
The decision follows a February 3 story on torture and sexual violence against Uighur women in Chinese concentration camps.
The NRTA “does not allow the BBC to continue broadcasting in China and rejects its annual broadcasting application,” the Beijing statement said.
The BBC regretted China’s decision.
“The BBC is the world’s most trusted international news broadcaster and provides news and stories from around the world fairly, objectively and without fear or prejudice,” said a spokeswoman for the British broadcaster.
